It's done!

Joy of joys - it's done!  Just waiting for the independent examiner to get back to me.  My thanks to everyone in the chat-room for all your moral support.

This should have been completed back in July, and the spreadsheet should have been completed month by month instead waiting until the year was over.  I said last year I wouldn't get myself into this situation this year, but....    I've realised that the major problem is anxiety, triggered for a mixture of reasons which I am only slowly becoming aware of.

I am hoping and praying that I have now cracked the block, and can start sorting out the 2020 accounts after a short break
