    Righto, so as Ed says later (ooh I can time travel!) One can't rebrand oneself on MSE. However...
    I do feel - and partly because of the experiences of another MFW who was getting somewhat robust criticism for not being hard core enough - that, well, I'm not nearly hardcore enough.
    So here I am. 43. Mortgage due to expire when I'm 55.
    I am going to try for getting rid of it by 50. Including a move to a smallholding as that's what I am aiming for (no s h i t!).
    I am planning a LOT of storecupboard challenges and a LOT of fiscal fasts.
    Here goes!

    Sorry to hear you've had a bug thats that bad I get terrified at the thought of what a bug will do to me, with my only-recently-improved immune system ... I use a *lot* of antibac hand gel, and while I'm out and about, I still try not to touch anything (which leads to interesting contortions around lift buttons etc)
