    £15.62p for me please which is going to my EF and child expenses x

    They're all talking sense sashybo sometimes life happens and you have to increase your debt total but think how much higher it would have been if you hadn't been PADing! Don't worry about it you're doing great x

    Dec 2015: £20,090.87

    Hi all, £3.50 to the loan today (got another £2.50 survey money through).

    Thanks for the support guys, I know you're right but just feel like I'm going round in circles sometimes. :cool: Oh well, onwards & downwards with the debt. :)

    £20 for me today please Keedie


    Sashybo, I know how you feel that you're going round in circles and every time you make any progress life comes and puts you right back - like a snakes and ladders kind of thing - but the others are right and it's not like debt has increased through irresponsible spending. Keep your chin up hun and you will get there.
