The financial pain of the final third of the year.

Did you have a good bank holiday? I hope so because it's all downhill from here.

"All we are is dust in the wind", so sang Kansas. Well, we may as well be pissing into it.

Look into the distance. No really look, past the foreground and into the deep distance. Do you see it? That tiny speck that isn't getting any closer? You're as far away from that speck as you can be. It's your September pay day. It's time to strap in and lube up because September's a long hard one.

At some point tomorrow the bank computers will have finished enjoying their break. They will then be busy totting up the many liberties you took with your bank balance whilst lost in a boozy bank holiday fug.

The worst thing about it all is that when you do reach the nirvana of September's pay day you'll spend too much of it celebrating that you have some money again. Then you'll realise it was one of the last three pay days before the final "oh shit it's Christmas tomorrow" pay day.

That's right. Once September's done with you Winter has buttered his balls and is ready to pound your financial arse to dust. Dust in the wind.
