Hello Sunday! This week seems to have gone by so quickly, though I feel like I’m always saying that at the moment! I feel like I’m getting sightly more on top of things, which is good. I hate feeling overwhelmed by all the things I feel like I have to get done or accomplish before the week is out.


It’s also been another quiet week for us which has been quite nice. Frugal Baby #1’s speech is coming on such a lot now and we can have little conversations, which is lovely 🙂 we’ve been playing a lot with his trains this week and it’s obvious that when he’s playing he’s making up scenarios. I wonder what is going on in his imagination sometimes! I wish there was a translate button 😉


I’m also 30 weeks pregnant, which means we’re on the final stretch! I can’t believe that it’s going so quickly. We still need to get the things down from the loft that we saved from Frugal Baby #1 and get ordering the other things we want to get. I want everything in place by the end of November, just in case! That includes having all of our Christmas shopping done too 🙂


Finally, the thing I’m most proud of this week is that I finally launched my first course! It’s actually a mini course all about reducing your food spend. Have a look at this post if you want to find out more – the reception I’ve got from it has been very positive so far!


5 things I’ve enjoyed/been grateful for this week:

1) Seeing a uni friend for a catch up and tea 🙂

2) Fresh flowers brightening up the living room

3) My Creative Countryside magazine – so proud of Eleanor!

4) Having a desert deliver as a takeaway – my pregnant self very much enjoyed this!

5) Having candles lit – makes it seem nice and cosy.



3 blog posts I’ve enjoyed reading this week:

1) What is it like making over $900,000 a year? by Think Save Retire. Having read Michelle’s blog for a long time, this was an interesting read!

2) Terry’s Chocolate Orange Truffles by Jane’s Patisserie. This isn’t a new post by Jane, but look how amazing these are! I definitely want to make these.

3) Save Money This Christmas With Your Ultimate Christmas Budget List by Thrifty Mum. It’s definitely not too late to get started for Christmas!
