do you ever sit at home and think to yourself “i need more $$ … i’m just not paid enough! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ”

well, next time you do, spare a thought for the poor cast of the big bang theory 😒

#tdil that the original big bang crew are taking a $100,000 per episode pay cut to help out the two new ladies on the scene πŸ™ŒπŸ» Continue reading “today i learned – sat 30th dec 2017”

today i learned – sun 18th june 2017

it is literally so hot that my brain no longer works 😩 (i wanted to use a brain emoji there but apparently there isn’t one?!)

anyway, today’s random fact about life came about after a fancy auction appeared on my telly box and i started to wonder what the most expensive thing sold at auction ever was πŸ€” i didn’t actually find out the answer to that … but i did find this gem 😘

#tdil that there are some parking spaces in new york that cost $1,000,000 each!!! πŸ˜±πŸ’΅πŸ’΅ Continue reading “today i learned – sun 18th june 2017”

the problem, however, is that i don’t feel like taking out a mortgage to pay for a pizza?! why you so expensive dominoes! ☹️ #tdil exactly why dominoes is so god darn expensive!Β  Continue reading “today i learned – sat 1st apr 2017”

today i learned – sat 25th mar 2017

today’s post is going to be a little different; Β as appose to learning a new fact, i actually learned that a fact i thought i knew, had been a lie all along 😭 (that said, i did subsequently learn some facts).

today i learned – fri 3rd mar 2017

today i learned a new way to help you out if you’re ever struggling for the £££ (aka my entire life). curious? #tdil that you can pay for stuff with stamps!

you may already know that, way back when, stamps were genuine currency that you could use in shops. what you may not know, however, is that they still are…well, sort of, it’s a bit of a grey area (in fact, i’m yet to find two articles that agree on the law).

today i learned – weds 15th feb 2017

today’s learning was actually quite a grown up learning about grown up money things! granted, it only came about because of work that i happened to be doing, but still…it counts!

Anyway, as boring as it may sound, the way in which car tax (aka ‘vehicle excise duty’ or ‘ved’ if you love an acronym) is calculated is changing on the 1st april 2017. from then, your car’s value will have an effect on how much tax you pay (from year two at least).Β  Continue reading “today i learned – weds 15th feb 2017”
