    Baby steps to mortgage freedom for beanielou. 4th Nov 14 at 1:19 PM
    My first thread on the MFW board!!
    My mortgage has 6 & 1/2 years left to run.
    My income seems to decrease more & more & it becomes more & and more of a challange to pay my hefty(to me) mortgage.
    I have managed an overpayment last month as I got some £££'s unexpectedly.
    My biggest fear is not being able to pay my mortgage & loosing my home.
    So I have decided that baby steps are the way forward~even a fiver or a tenner overpaid in a month is better than nothing.

    You've been through lots lately. A PJ day is probably just what the doctor ordered.

    Tea~~Will see how the best boy gets on with the food & take it from there

He also goes through phases of not eating and just licking the gravy off the food. A while ago I realised he sometimes prefers to eat the food that has been out for 24 hours rather than the fresh food - presumably its the smell but who knows. Cats eh......
