    My big financial challenge to mortgage freedom

    My big financial challenge to mortgage freedom 19th Apr 17 at 5:51 PM
    I've been avidly paying off as much of the mortgage as I could for the last 8+ years, only...it wasn't my mortgage.
    Now we are parting ways and I'm ready for a new challenge.
    I need to get a mortgage-in the throes of, as we speak. Once I get it, I need to pay it off ASAP. It's more than 3 X the size of my ex partners mortgage.

    So, myself and Miss tc are buying a house together. (Trying to).
    We finally received documents to sign and the conveyancer wants the deposit. I'm hoping that we will be sorted and moved within a month.
    We are first time buyers and there is no chain.

    No spend day today.
    I had home made vegetable soup today but I did add some meats I have loads of food that needs eating.

    Looking forward to a year of hard work so if you see me on here please give me a kick up my rear as I need to knuckle down and work my socks off.
