June 2014 Update
May has been and gone, and now we are fast approaching the middle of the year. How scary is that? We are adjusting to having an extra person in our lives, and one who is sometimes seemingly determined to play havoc with our plans! Still, she is generally lovely, and that basically makes up for anything she does, including some of the epically appalling, nappy melting efforts she produces. I had a little bit of a financial bonus this month too. I received compensation from the CPP Card Protection scheme, to the tune of £170. That was a nice amount to chuck at one of my debts (after a well deserved Chinese of course).
Let’s get down to the figures. At the end of May, my debt stood at £18,172.88. After my June payments, my total debt will be £17,774.73. That means that I have reduced my debt by a further £398.15. As you can imagine, I was delighted with this. It also bodes well for when we are finally debt free, as this amount can be going straight into savings for a deposit on a house. As much as we love our little flat, it’s not going to be much fun when our daughter wants to run around. Some outside space would be very helpful (and would also mean we could have lots of lovely barbeques). Anyway, that’s one for the future…
So, what will June bring? Well, I am due to attend a stag do for a good friend of mine, which should be good fun. I’m using the money I save up every year to attend my favourite festival (which I am not going to this year), so I don’t need to find the money for the stag. Apart from that, I will be mostly studying until my eyes bleed, and trying to spend time with the family. How the devil are you getting on with those pesky debts?
