Paid Some Money off the Mortgage
I just paid £500 off the mortgage which is all the spare money we had left over this month after the bills were paid leaving a float of £200 in the current account. I have just ordered some books to sell so I need to get some more money in there to pay for those when they arrive, hopefully I will be able to do that. My mortgage repayment account now has £19,000 in it and I now owe £79943.33. I need to pay at least £1000 more off this month to stay on target and I am not sure how I will manage that. It will be nice to have a round £20,000 in the overpayment account. It still feels like we are a long way off paying the debt and sometimes I just wish we could have a premium bonds win and get it paid but on the other hand, I know that I will feel much better in myself if I know that our hard work has paid it off and not a piece of luck. I guess I need to get on with that hard work then......!
