I wish i bought a load of ltc 2 weeks ago and cashed it out now, but my real world money got delayed, and now it's a bit too late to buy :/

I don't think it is not too late to buy LTC. I would think it will still outpace ETH & BTC in price growth for 2018 like what it did last year. Also it is becoming more useful as this article shows
