October seems to have whizzed by in a flash. I’m not entirely sure where the month went?! It also has been a much more spend-y month for us, which is frustrating. Mostly things that were necessary (hello car tax) but even so. After the success of September, it’s slightly bitter sweet!   We had a …
Goodbye September! I can’t believe it’s already over. How fast did that go?! Although it feels like I’ve lost the last week of the month due to contracting a horrible sickness bug. I don’t remember the last time I have been that ill. For the first 24 hours I struggled to keep water down, never …
How is August over already?! It’s been such a lovely month. I’ve been on holiday for the entire time so I’ve had lots of time to spend with Frugal Baby.  It was his second birthday at the start of the month and we celebrated it with family. He still isn’t quite aware what it means, …
As I said for June, July has also passed in a whirlwind. We have been busy! We had a family wedding, plus another wedding during the month so weekends have been full of travel. We finally got our back garden sorted, though I need to buy some more plants for the border. It’s a much …
June seems to have passed by in a whirl wind. We finally got to share our news with everyone [thank you for your lovely comments!]. We also got started on our back garden which I’ve been wanting to do for ages. I went to a wedding of an old school friend and got to catch …
I said this in April, but I’m sort of glad May is over. Again, it’s not been the best month. I’m not even sure why! There are a couple of things hanging over me at the moment which probably isn’t helping. Plus, Frugal Baby is having a lot of disturbed night’s sleep which means we …
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’m not quite sure why, but I have found March tough. As in, the month has seemed long. There have been some nice days, some days spent with family, but on the whole, it seems to have been a tough month for us.   One positive, however, is that it is our wedding anniversary today! …
Goodness me. How fast has January gone by? 2017 is going to be a record paced year at this rate! It seems like January has gone by in a blink of an eye. Though it does feel like Christmas was ages ago. Strange. It has been a quiet month for the Frugal Cottage household in …
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, …
