    Hello,

    I think I start this challenge, set the bar too high and then disappear quietly in to the night! Really sorry

    I am going to be more realistic this time.

    Loan - 3898

    I want to get it down to 3000 by Nov 21st

    I am due a text rebate in my August pay but I will have to use it wisely as my code is now sorted out and I won't get any more rebates!

    thanks for running the thread Amara xx
