    #52 checking in for December!  I didn't make any OPs in November as had a hefty house repair bill.  Decembers overpayment is £1033.44 which means I have hit my target whoop!  I really didn't think I could do it.  This challenge is great at keeping me focussed and motivated.  Thank you for running it Julicorn :)

    Number 67 with final overpayment of the year of £334 for December. Bringing me to a total of 3061 for the year, essnetially 3/4 of target.
    I have the remaining £1000 tucked away as we're having work done on the house and I wanted to keep it as a buffer just in case it goes over budget, so hopefully I'll be adding it to next years challenge!
    Thank you Julicorn for running the challenge. "see" you all next year!

    #150 paid another £12.05  (so total for 2020 so far is £247.31)

    Sorry Julicorn, pesky interest went and messed up my nice rounded figure, so I had to go and pay it down.  I suspect there will be another 6 or 7 of these as the interest gets added daily I will be paying it down.  Nice to see the point at which it gets lower - probably ages away.  Once I reach 1st January it will get less frequent (slightly).
