    I hadn't realised you had paid off £7,000 in debt this year. Well done.
    If you have built castles in the air, your work should not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

    I have checked Quidco and my Home Insurance from March has finally cleared, balance on there is £27.88.

    I think I'll withdraw it and pay that off the BC, that'll leave me with £12.12 to pay off.

    ETA - Have checked the BC and the transfer has gone out from there. Balance is showing a nice £40 :)

    I received a cheque from the DVLA for my old car for £6.66, I'll bank that at the weekend and that too can come off the BC. That will leave me with £5.46 remaining of the £12.12 :)

    Well done purple, everything looking to be going the right way.

    That's really early to meet ds' teachers, not enough time to get a decent understanding of him/how his year is going? Still at least you know who they are.

    Wow! You have done so well and you are continuing to do well!

    I like the idea of clearing some overdraft when savings reach £500. I think I shall try that when I get to that point!
    CC £4,012 left to pay (was £5400).
