Under £100k

I'm still here..slowly chipping away at the mortgage.  Pleased to say we are now sub £100k.  That feels good!

In other news, have started crocheting (mixed results, photos to follow), had a go at stained glass making (wonderful!), made a dress (slightly wonky) and have got my reading mojo back!

Another mortgage payment

As we draw ever closer to getting our mortgage under £100k, I made another overpayment today.  Just £1,144 to go until we reach five figures!

I'll have to think about another goal to set myself once I achieve this one!

Well that was 2012

Well, I've started back at work full-time.  It's not too bad and the money is always welcome!

We managed to pay £8,683 off the mortgage and as of the 1st Jan we have £102,000 left outstanding on the mortgage.

I'm dedicating 2013 to two things and two things only.

  1. Paying £10,000 off our mortgage (and finding a great new deal when our fixed rate ends in December)
  2. Finally getting rid of the baby weight and getting myself a BMI that is normal (I've just gone from obese to overweight since Christmas)
I think that is enough to be getting on with.  Just keeping on top of the washing and ironing while working full time and looking after a toddler is exhausting!
