Hello March! This post is slightly later than normal, due to the events that have happened over the past week. Frugal Baby took ill on Tuesday evening and we’ve been in and out of hospital with him ever since. Hopefully, he is now slowly on the mend. But, as you can imagine, a tough few days. …
Hello February! I can’t believe that we are already into the second month of the year. January flew by, so as February is a shorter month, I’m sure it will too. February should be relatively quiet for The Frugal Cottage household. We have got a couple of family days out planned which should be lovely. Other than …
Hello January! The start of a new year always brings renewed hope and promise. I love not knowing where the year is going to take us. January should be relatively quiet for The Frugal Cottage household. I am hoping to get my focus and determination back; I have been lacking in motivation lately and it …
Hello December! I love this time of year and I’m so looking forward to Christmas. There are also lots of family birthdays in December. Mine is next week! Lots of things to look forward to.

Hello September! It’s always a mixed emotions month for me, as it means back to work after always having the summer off. This year it seems to be proving especially hard as I am leaving the Frugal Baby again after having so much time with him and making more memories. It really has been lovely …
I cannot believe it’s August already! I know they say that time goes faster the older you get, but this is ridiculous. Our little boy turns 1 on Sunday, and it truly has been the fastest year of my life so far. How have I got a 1 year old already?! We’re having a little …
Hello July! I can’t believe that we’re already halfway through 2016; this year seems to be flying by. July for us is relatively quiet as we have nothing special planned. I’m hoping that the weather picks up so that we can go for family days out and enjoy being outside.   I am pondering about …
Hello June! Another month to work through, to have fun and exiting times, and to get further along in our financial journey. We’ve got a little family holiday planned in June which I’m really looking forward to; it’ll be our first time away as a family of three! Other than that, June is quite a …
