Well, February is over! I always find February a tougher month, although I’m not entirely sure why.

We’ve …
  As the tagline for this blog goes, it is about living the good life on a budget. That means we look after every penny and pound to ensure they do their best for us. We work hard to earn as money, as does everyone else, and we want to make sure that we don’t …
There are many aspects of life that can be especially tricky, an endeavour to navigate through or a challenge to be won, but there is an overall aspect of life that can make or break who you are, that defines your future and takes that extra leap of faith in order to achieve greatness and …
What an absolutely fantastic week it has been. Both me and my husband have been off this week so we planned to have a mini getaway which was perfect. We went to quite a nice hotel nearby for a couple of nights and we just relaxed and did nothing. I cannot remember the last time …

It has been a while since I last did a Life Update, so I thought I’d do another one.   I’ll be honest, I feel that lately, I’ve lost my motivation for life, my enthusiasm for the everyday and the world seems to have lost its shine. I think I’d be quite happy to hibernate …
This past week has gone so quickly! Work has been incredibly busy this week and long days there mean that the evenings seem to fly by, and before you know it, it’s another day at work. We’re at my parents this weekend which is lovely. We haven’t done very much but it’s just nice to …
