I am nearly there
Late last year I wrote about my tricky financial situation. Since then I paid just a bit over R17000 towards debt. I still have a long way to go but things really are looking better. I now need to pay back the company loan that I have. That should take 3 or 4 months, depending on whether our accountant will approve the new R5000 loan that I need to fix my busted scooter.
This morning I went to the Magistrate’s Court to have the Telkom Judgment rescinded. It took all of 5 minutes to do so. Well, first I had to pay more than double the original debt in interest and other charges. Then I got permission from Telkom’s attorneys to have the judgment rescinded. And then on Thursday I got an appointment to see the judge who has the power to rescind the judgment. I’ll never get into a situation like this again. Never.
And then — the best news, ever: I managed to save R120 into a fixed savings account. I’ll do this for 12 months. This will be a test run of sorts. I may end up buying shoes with the money. But who knows, I might decide to continue saving for a rainy day.
I’ll use today’s lunch hour to go find out how to get a new copy of my Matric results. So here are the figures:
