This edition of the Weekend Edition means I have done this type of post on a Sunday for a whole year! I really enjoy reflecting back on the week just gone and appreciating what has happened during the week.   This week has been the beginning of my maternity leave, so I haven’t really done …

2015 Goals Update
As we have now passed the half way point in 2015 (how did that happen?!) I thought it would be a good time to recap on my 2015 goals to see where I stand.   My Financial Goals for 2015 are: – Put £8,000 into savings – Overpay our mortgage by £3,400 – Have 220 NSDs throughout the year – Open a S&S …
