I cannot be the only one that finds it hard to believe we are nearly at the end of May, already?! I cannot believe how quickly 2018 is going so far. I’m sure that being so busy doesn’t help with that, because before I know it another day is over and another bed time routine …
Improve Your Home
When you’re trying to stick to a budget, whether you’re a seasoned pro or a newbie figuring out where all your money is going, then chances are you are going to be staying at home more often. Which means that you are going to spend a lot of time within the four walls of your …
I have been thinking about my spending habits lately, and how I seem to have good periods of spending and not so great ones. I think that there are a lot of factors to think about when it comes to personal spending and we all have our different triggers when it comes to spending money. …
Change A Habit
I have mentioned before about joining Slimming World and wanting to lose weight. But, to be honest, I have needed to lose weight for quite a while now. I managed really well in the run up to our wedding [so that I would fit into the dress I’d ordered] but since that I haven’t managed …

I love dividend income updates, as it’s definitely building into a good passive income stream now. It’s a slow and steady plod, but it’s going!   I love logging into my account …
Hello May! These are slightly later than I would normally post but for good reason – I have chicken pox! I can’t believe it 🙁 I never had it as a child and not entirely sure where I’ve caught it from, but it’s awful. I feel like I’ve got the flu, plus I have a lot …
Well, hasn’t April gone by fast!? It always seems to be the same; I write these reviews more quickly each month, I’m sure of it!   April has been a lovely month. We went away for 5 days to Center Parcs at Whinfell forest with Mr FC’s family and it was just wonderful. I love …
