    Morning 65.44 paid today for me 866.96/1800 933.04 to go.

    Having increased my debt again, really intend to knuckle down now. Bought a badly needed new bed.

    Just keep swimming

    Hi! £36 from me , but I used my CC over family visit, so I'm back to square one. Not totally ,I've spend about £350, but still. I've also paid off £36. Anyway, I think is fair to put back £350 to my balance. Sigh.

    Hello ...she says slinking back with her tail between her legs.

    I haven't been posting much - the paying off the debts hasn't really gone very well this challenge.

    I will keep doing this but I think the debt that I want to pay off is one for another challenge.

    You eat an elephant one bite at a time gettingtheresometime, you will get there.

    Sorry for my tardiness I've had a mini mid-life crisis eye's are now set firmly on the prize so a payment of £24.19 brings me to £664.19/1140.

    It's going to be a hard push but should just make the deadline by the skin of my teeth.
