  I spend a lot of time reading various personal finance blogs online; I love to soak up all of the information that they provide, the inspiration to continue to do more, the varieties of backgrounds and lives they live. I think that reading and taking in all of this information can only better my …
This week has been a fairly normal week; both of us have been at work and nothing particularly out of the ordinary has happened. I feel like I’m on top of my work at the moment, which is a nice feeling – long may it continue! I mentioned last week that both of my grandparents were ill, …
