When I first set out the outline of this challenge, I forgot to consider two things. Firstly, that I would be off work for weeks 3 and 4, which makes it slightly trickier to gage the results. Secondly, that as I go through the pregnancy, I need to eat slightly more and at more …
  As we continue to prepare for our new arrival in the summer, our thoughts are obviously turning to how to cope on a reduced income. The obvious things, such as the nursery and everything related to the baby will be bought beforehand (hopefully!) but there are other things to take into account as well. …
This past week has been lovely; I’ve been off work and it has been great! I have spent some time with family, had a catch up with an old friend and pottered around the house without any reason to rush. If only it was holiday time all the time! The weather has also suddenly got …
Firstly, can I just say thank you for all of your lovely comments on our last post. We are very happy, excited and a bit nervous, all at the same time! There are lots of things to consider and plan for now, but we are very grateful to be on this journey.      Spring …

Hello April! Hopefully a month which brings warmer weather, and the days are longer. We don’t really have any plans in April, as the majority of the time me and my husband are at work. However, we’ll be spending our time relaxing and seeing friends and family, which is time well spent. We also want to get …
Well, March is over, and what a month it has been. There have been definite ups and downs, as you’ll see from our aims, but I still feel like we’re doing the best we can. We have spent some time with family at the weekends, plus it has been our wedding anniversary as well, so lots …
This week has gone by slowly, mainly because I have continuously wanted it to be the weekend. I hate it when work goes slowly, as the days drag on and on, without any break. However, the week is now over and it has been a relatively normal week, bar one exception (see below). There’s also …
