The Credit Crunch - ouch!

We have been assessing our finances since the stock market problems. Our shares have dropped in value considerably but we have a good spread and we buy each month so we are hoping to take advantage of the low prices and get lots of units so that when the prices go back up we will do well. We have made money like this before in the past. The shares were meant to pay the mortgage but we are still hoping to do that with my earnings and keep the shares as our retirement fund. Earnings are down but we really hope that we can still reach our deadline of 23/12/2012. I would love it to be 2010 really as that will be our 10th wedding anniversary but the chances of that are pretty slim!
