    Pay is in, have sent £1000 off the barclaycard, will see where I am at the end of the month but looks like the car needs work this month so suspect will end up needing any leftovers for that this month.

    £129.20/£3100 paid off so far and hoping to pay more this week. Its been a tough month as OH work delayed submitting his company car details to tax office even though they had advised him they had submitted it at the start of the tax year.Ended up with a large tax bill meaning an additional £1000 per month has been going out of his wage for the last 3 months!!
