Now is the time start thinking about the year ahead; what kind of things do you wish to accomplish in the upcoming year and what things are you aware that you struggle with that you want to try and get sorted. I know for a fact, that snacking in between meals is going to be …
As someone who regularly reads the news, it comes as no surprise that in the UK, the rise in the need for food banks is rising. The more people are using, the more important they become to those in need. There has been a few articles recently that have caught my attention, such as this …
The first weekend in December is done! I love this time of year, and the houses around us are beginning to get their Christmas lights up, so driving home when it’s dark is slightly less dull as I can look at all the different variations of Christmas lights as I drive through the streets. Our …
It is at this time of year when my frugal instincts are tested. We are constantly bombarded with Christmas adverts, the latest must-have gadget and there is enough food in the supermarkets to feed everybody for the next year at least. There seems to be more and more choice in terms of what to buy …
