This question is for anyone living in the UK, who has had a mortgage in the last 5 years, to present.
Is your mortgage payment, under, or over £500 per month?
Just reply with your answer as under, or over. There is no need to tell me your actual amount.
With this lockdown and everything else in my life. But especially the lockdown. The lockdown has made me rather desperate now to be living in a house, with a garden.
I have felt so caged in because I dare not go out for a walk out on the nature reserve, or park, because of everyone else doing it and not having control of that 2 meter distance.
And same with regards of sitting just outside my flat in the garden, along with maybe not getting my own peace and quiet during that time. My only walking is when it’s work, or groceries, as I have mentioned before.
I am sick of the neighbours still opposite and, their latest antics and with not being able to travel to other areas, it’s making me feel caged.
Now if I was in a house, I would be sat in the garden, or doing something in the garden. I would not have felt caged. This lockdown has clearly shown me that.
I envy those right now that are in their garden resting, or planting their veg, or flowers. Or just doing that little bit of weeding.
So these last two weeks the way I have been going about my mortgage originally, I have been thinking, do I need to change plans to my original plan? Still, those plans I am thinking, may take at least a year, to a year and a half to achieve, if I use those new tatics. But that doesn’t feel as bad as what was 3 years. Plus, if I stick with my original plan then I now know it definitely won’t happen in 3 years, due to less being put aside. It will never happen if I stick to that plan. Unless I win the lottery. Which I don’t play.
As some will know already, I am seriously conteplating on moving out of this flat now, to a rented house, when restrictions are lifted. But I am holding off for two reasons.
1. Now is definitely not the right time to move in the next few months, because what may arise with my mum. It would be too much to handle mentally.
2. If I am going to change my plan and use a new plan in regards to buying my own home then there is no point moving into a rented one, because this may be more achievable.
So I am hoping to focus on just getting through the next 8 months to a year, counting from now. I can’t bear to think of anything longer than this. Then I will go from there
