Just another payment update...

ANOTHER payment today.

£35 to the travel agents, making £2110 in total paid off so far! £790 in total left to pay.

I'm so close I can taste it! I may even be able to get back on track and pay up before June, but I'm not sure. I'm only £30 behind this month. Compared to last month (£142 behind!), that's brilliant.

I've just worked out, I can add on dates to pay onto my schedule. I have 20 payments of £35 and I'll be paid off by the 16th of May if I add on just 5 extra payment days.

The tickets (including the Manatee swim) will be paid off by the 17th of June if I paid £35 a week to them.

So that's my new target. To have my whole holiday paid off in 10-12 weeks time!

I now have an online job, so am able to pay more towards the holiday from now on!

I'm still behind because of last month, but today I paid £80 to the travel agents and £25 for the tickets!

So far I have paid £2075! Broken the 2k barrier today. I have £630 left to pay for the holiday and £195 for the tickets, not incuding the Manatee swim, which makes £382. Total (before Manatee swim) is £825 left to pay!

If I include the swim, which I may do now seeing as I'm probably going to be able to afford it, I have £1012 left.

I should be paying some more off tomorrow, then a bit more on Friday, maybe some on Saturday too, depending on what bills come out this week!

One more down....

Another £35 to the travel agents, making the total paid £1970! I now how £930 in total left to pay!


Saturday, 7 March 2009

Woo! Broken the £1000 barrier!

Paid £35 to travel agents today so I now owe £965! Paid a total of £1935!

I have £745 left to pay the travel agents and £220 for the tickets(or £407 if you include the manatee swim, which I still don't know if I can afford yet, so not officially adding it)!

Going to try to pay a little extra than planned each time I pay and hopefully I'll still be paid off when I wanted to be.

It's getting so close now! Past the 7 month mark now too. :D

Got to the £1000 mark! £1000 left to pay, £1900 paid so far!!

Almost two thirds of the way there now. It's getting closer, it'll be paid off soon!

Another payment

Still lagging behind! Seriously need to catch up this month. Another £35 to the travel agent leaving £780 left to pay them. Still £235 for the tickets, before the Manatee swim! Then there's the spending money and money for all the meals I have planned. :S

It will work out in the end though. My mum is giving me $50 for my birthday next week which will pay for one meal for us, so that's great!

Grand total of £1015 left to pay, before the manatee swim. 65% of the way there now!

Just thought I'd add this!

7 months 5 days!

It's getting so close now.

Kids passports

It has come from unfortunate circumstances (my ex mil has been made redundant) but because of this she's offered to pay to get the kids passports!

So that have saved me nearly £100 and I just need mine, then there's no more forseen obstacles ahead! I just need to pay the holiday off and hope there are no flight delays or cancellations or anything.

So I'm happy today!

Also I have a kind of online job. I say kind of because it's not regualar hours and it doesn't pay much, but it's something and every penny I earn will be going straight towards the holiday. :)
