To be quite honest, April hasn’t been the best month. I’m not entirely sure why, either. We have had a lovely family break in Scotland, and it was the Easter holidays so I have had some time off work. The weather has got better. Frugal Baby continues to be a joy. There should be no …
I haven’t done a Life Update since the start of January, so I thought I would do another and update you on things here at Frugal Cottage HQ.   I’ll be completely honest, I feel a bit despondent about things lately. It feels like there are not enough hours in the day and I am …

Hello April! I’m looking forward to a new month. The past two months have been quite tough for us as a household. I’m hoping that April proves to be much more positive. I hope that the weather gets a bit warmer in April too! I’m looking forward to getting out with Frugal Baby and enjoying …
