Well,┬áMarch 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 …
I am at the end of the second week of the Working Week Challenge I have set myself, and I thought I would post an update on how I’m finding it and my results so far. I have found that knowing that I have to be completely honest on here as I don’t want to …
  Following on from last week’s post on 3 healthy breakfast recipes on a budget, I thought I would continue the theme with some ideas for lunch time. Now, lots of people go out for lunch, or end up rushing something whilst sat at a desk working at the same time, but lunch is the …

This week has been so much more relaxed compared to last week, which has been a welcome relief. Work has been slightly less hectic, and apart from one day, I have managed to arrive home at a reasonable time and spend some quality time at home with my husband and our two fur babies. Achieving …
I posted recently about three things that are making my budget creep up over time and it’s about time I changed this. One of those was getting a takeaway on an evening when I can’t be bothered. However, it also has come to my attention that I have succumbed to the work canteen more regularly …
One of the first posts I wrote for this site was The Ultimate Dream, which outlines our hopes for the future. It doesn’t dwell on any particular facts or figures, but merely states that the ultimate dream for me and my husband is to retire fully by the age of 50. In order to do …
