    Some good news for a Monday, finally paid off the outstanding amount owed on my loan.

    ITS FINALLY GONE! Re-paying it early has saved me over 1500 in interest with no early repayment penalties. Been a long old slog getting rid of other loans, credit cards, overdrafts but I now only owe my student loans then that's it. Debt free day VERY soon!!

    I'm so frickin' happy right now!!

    and the update (after a few issues at Natwest's end getting sorted out)..........

    ..........

    ....checked my online banking this morning and its gone, properly gone from my accounts, standing order has been cancelled, all I need to do now is wait for the confirmation letter!!

    Thanks for all the positive messages guys, and for all those thinking its never ending I can assure you there IS light at the end of the tunnel. A few years ago I was approx. 40k in debt, now its under 6k. Keep your chins up and focus on the long term goal of being debt free and happier.
