Made the final payment on the mortgage this morning, I'm deliriously happy, and to be honest a bit emotional. Time to start living

That's a good feeling.... I remember it well.

Trouble is, you soon find other uses for the money you were paying..... so the main thing is the absence of the ball and chain!!

thanks guys, it has been hard work sometimes in places I hate, but ultimately worth it. I had the weight of the world on my shoulders with that mortgage and now we're free

I couldn't be happier for you Steve. Working on the mines in WA is a bloody hard ask of anyone, and hanging around Perth and being separated from your family is no picnic either. But you stuck it out and now you're mortgage free, woohoo! Well done young man
