What Have I Been Up To..

Well the big news is we paid off half our mortgage – yippee.  With that done we have 7 years and 8 months left, however our aim is to have it paid off by the time I’m 45 which is 5 years and 8 months away so fingers crossed. 

Other news is we’ve booked a week in Spain in October.   We have rented a villa about 1 hours’ drive from Malaga – guess who’s driving – yep me!!  I don’t know Spain at all only being to Benidorm and Tenerife but my OH know the area well as his parents had a home there when he was young so I’m looking forward to seeing all the place’s he has told me about. 

We should have been getting ready to go to the festival this weekend but got an email last night saying due to weather conditions it has been cancelled.  It’s a shame as I don’t think we will get to see the same line-up again but understandable.  Unfortunately my OH had to use 3 days holiday which it’s too late to change so we ummed and ahhed about going away somewhere but as the weather is bad and to be honest we have so much to do in the house we are staying put.

I’ve had a few days off this week sick, I woke up on Wednesday with an awful headache and feeling sick but went to work however was brought home by my supervisor by 10am, just made it to the bathroom in time (sorry if you’re eating).  I’ve struggled to keep even water down but feeling better today.  I don’t know if it was a bug or a migraine but hope it doesn’t come back.

Hope you are feeling better now R.C.!


THIS IS INCREDIBLE NEWS! Please celebrate your achievement.

What about a progress bar for your mortgage?

Or maybe Spain is your celebration. I have visited the area where you are going to and it's wonderful. Great to have something to look forward to alongside your hard saving.
