    Morning Hidden Shadow,

    Thanks for picking up the baton on next year's MFW.

    I'd like to continue participation as #10 please. I didn't make 2016's £5k target as I stopped working to look after the kids so halved our income.
    However I'm going to be brave and try for another £5k in 2017. It's a huge undertaking for which I don't have a plan but need to stay on track to meet the MFi3-4 challenge and our aspiration to be MF by 2025.

    Thank you

    That's the beauty of MFW, can always try and make up ground later. :) Good luck with next year's 5k challenge!

  • Hi hiddenshadow,


    I am currently number 148 for the MFW 2016 challenge. If possible could I have number 86 for 2017 as that is currently showing as free on this year's sheet. If not available could I just have a number lower than 148 please.


    I am expecting an expensive year going forward so could you please set my target as £3750.


    Thanks

    Me Me Me again please. (I was number 15 last year)

    This year I was able to pay £500 per month but my deal is changing in March and changing to me being able to overpay by 10% which in the first few years means I can pay more! But I think this year means this:

    Jan - £500
    Feb - £500
    March - Dec - 10%

    and I won't know what this 10% is till March so I can get a exact figure based on my mortgage at the end of Feb but my aim is to pay the max of 10% over the coming year.
