I would just like to take this opportunity to wish Helen all the best on the last day of her 5 year IVA - and to thank her for her tireless support on the forum to our other posters.

It must be an incredible feeling being on the eve of a debt-free future, and I know she and her family have lots of plans as to what they are going to do with their new found savings.

I am sure that we will see just as much of Helen in the future as we have in the past - and I would just like to pay tribute to her cheerful and witty way of dealing with the day to day grumbles of living with very little spare cash, and what an inspiration you have been to others. Some of us have followed your journey from the very early days, and look forward to finding out more about life post-IVA in due course!
Regards, Melanie Giles, Insolvency Practitioner

Isn't it fantastic? That last payment comes out tomorrow, and I know how Helen has struggled in the past couple of years.

Well done, and I am proud to count myself as one of your friends (so is hubby).

So glad for this forum as well - we would never have met otherwise.

Hi

Just wanted to say, well done Helen, I have seen the struggles and I have felt for you. I am so glad you made it through, lesser humans may have thrown the towel in.

Good luck for the future.

Youre a special person and your family are lucky to have you.

Love
LILY
