For the past couple of weeks, you'll be aware that I've been trying to speed up paying off our mortgage with various schemes, however these have not been terribly successful.

But just to really rub it in Charlotte's mate has only gone and won herself a blinged up BMW M3 on MTV that was used to promote a PlayStation racing game! As she can't keep it due to boring things like insurance and storing it, it's now being sold on EBay! At the time of writing the current bid was just over 20 grand - 20 GRAND!!! And the buy it now price is 90 grand! That would pay off our mortgage and leave us with 30 grand change.

It is just not fair. :o(
