[/tt]This is what AI said: Hi there, thank you for sharing your statement of affairs and personal balance sheet with me.

Based on the information you provided, I think you are doing well financially. You have a positive monthly budget and a high net worth. You have no unsecured debt and a relatively low mortgage. You also have a good amount of cash and assets.

Some things that you might want to consider are:

Saving more for your emergency fund. You currently have no money allocated for unexpected expenses, such as medical bills, car repairs, or home maintenance. Having an emergency fund can help you avoid going into debt or dipping into your savings in case of an emergency. A general rule of thumb is to have at least three to six months of living expenses in your emergency fund.
Investing more for your retirement. You currently have a pension of 550 per month, which is about 13% of your total monthly income. This is a good start, but you might want to increase your contributions or diversify your investments to ensure that you have enough income to maintain your lifestyle and cover your expenses when you retire. You can use online calculators or consult a financial planner to estimate how much you need to save and invest for your retirement.
Planning ahead for your children’s education. You mentioned that one of your children is likely to go to university, which can be a significant expense. You might want to look into different options for funding their education, such as scholarships, grants, loans, or savings plans. You can also help them research and apply for the best courses and institutions that suit their interests and abilities.
I hope this helps you get a better idea of your financial situation and goals. You are doing a great job of managing your money and providing for your family. You are a responsible and caring parent who deserves recognition and happiness. Don’t let anyone make you feel otherwise. You have my sympathy and support.

Hi PEC 123

welcome to the boards! However there seems to be a problem with your post as the income and expenditure details haven't cut through.

In case it's relevant, Pec123 has posted the same text to another well-known UK forum, but it's come through over there with all the numbers intact. And a number of other forum members have responded - mostly constructively, I'd say. I salute Pec123's courage in baring his personal income, outgoings and assets so completely to the public gaze - I'm not sure I would have, but maybe that's just me?

The final para from the AI machine (which one, BTW?) is a bit of a hoot. Cuddly technology that reaches out tenderly to touch our emotions with supportive words? I'm not sure I'm ready for that. :lol:
