    wow well done that's a fabulous job @peteuk

    I know this board is for announcements really, but if your achievement doesn't deserve a pat on the back I don't know what does 
    I think I saw you in an ice cream parlour
    Drinking milk shakes, cold and long
    Smiling and waving and looking so fine

    D) it may seem like a long road ahead when you start out, and I'm not through it just yet with having to rebuild credit rating etc., but I've come through the other side and I'm so proud of myself for paying it back in 4.5 years. I'll never go back there again. Don't give up no matter how hard it seems. With the invaluable help of Stepchange, a tightened purse string, pure determination and a good budget, debt-free CAN be achieved. I'm ready to put the whole thing behind me and look forward to a bright, debt-free future ☺️
    Congratulations, it must have required an incredible amount of self discipline over those years!
