Happy Wednesday! I’ll be honest, I am glad that November is over. My Grandma sadly passed away and it is her funeral today. We are saying goodbye to an amazing lady and lots of family and friends are going to be there. I still can’t believe she’s gone. I suppose it will seem even more …

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. Some aspects have been a bit hit and miss during October. However, I am going to continue to go with my investing strategy. After all, I am in it for the long term, so to speak. October saw a great savings rate, but …
