Another year over, another year older. Time for a reflection on 2016. We knew that 2016 would be a year of change, starting the year with a 4 month old baby. And we have see huge changes! Just with him, he can now walk, chatter to himself and he’s on the verge of being able …
I know I say this every month, but how is December over already? Each month seems to go by faster and faster. I must be getting old 😉 I love December and the excitement of the holidays and this year has been no different. Although Frugal Baby still doesn’t quite understand what is going on, …
I cannot believe that 2016 is almost over; it has been a year of incredible highs and lows. The Frugal Cottage has continued to grow and I am loving every moment of it. I am hoping that 2017 will be even better in terms of growing my own business, but for now, I am looking …
Just a quick post to wish each and every one of my lovely readers a Happy Christmas.   We’re spending the day with family, whilst making sure Frugal Baby doesn’t get too excited! I can’t wait to see his face when he gets his presents 🙂   Thank you for reading The Frugal Cottage this …
As the big day begins to creep every closer, Christmas dinner must be on everyone’s minds. After all, it’s a very important part of the day! Whether you have chicken or turkey, pigs in blankets or Yorkshire puddings, the food is one of the best bits. But, if you have the whole family round for …
I love nothing more on a dark winter’s evening, then watching a Christmas movie. Even better if I am snuggled up on the sofa with a nice soft blanket and a hot chocolate. My lovely secret santa buddy has sent me this for Christmas, which is perfect for a Christmas movie night!   Although some …
I love the fact that Christmas is on its way, and we are planning on putting our decorations up this weekend. I cannot wait to see Frugal Baby’s reaction to the tree; he was far too young last year to appreciate the fact that anything was going on, so it should be a lot different …
Another month and one in which I can write about earning an income online; how exciting is that?! The numbers are still small. But, it’s another income stream that I am trying to build, slowly but surely. If I can combine earning some money online, plus my day job, plus dividend income, it will slowly build …
Time for another one of my favourite updates of the month; my dividend income update. I still get a little thrill of excitement when I log into my ISA and see that I have received another dividend payment, no matter how small it is. Just for owning a tiny part of a company and investing in …
Another month over so I get to update the Ultimate Dream Fund. It has been a turbulent month for my investments to be honest. A lot of quite large ups and downs! However, as I don’t intend to sell any of my investments any time soon, it doesn’t matter quite so much. It is difficult …
