The 5 Best Money Lessons to Teach Your Kid

We all know that money is important to living a happy and healthy life, but the sad truth is that we don’t learn financial lessons as often, or as quickly as we should during our youth. Instead, most of us find ourselves struggling to understand things like debt, investments, and loans when we’re much older, and worried about the big purchases we need to make in life.

2018 – My Hopes and Dreams

Happy New Year everyone! As is customary at this time of year, I’ve decided to lay down my hopes for the 12 months ahead. I’m definitely not a ‘new year, new me’ kind of person, because I think that’s kinda of bull shit, but I would like to make some positive changes and achieve some big things. I’m not even going to call these my new year’s resolutions, because that phrase just screams ‘Fail in the first week’ doesn’t it? No, instead these are my 2018 Hopes and Dreams.

Imagine, nine weeks of crisp autumn walks, evenings spent in front of the fire, hot chocolates. Sounds like bliss to me. Anyway, because autumn […]

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

A good night’s sleep is something I crave, all of the time. I love my bed. I love snuggling up under my duvet, and could happily spend the whole day in bed if given the chance. Of course, I’ll never be given that chance now that I’m a parent of two. My children are lovely little creatures but they definitely could do with sleeping a bit more. As most parents will know, time spent sleeping is precious. From the moment mama finds out she’s pregnant, sleep (or lack of it) becomes a big deal. From the uncomfortable nights with a huge bump, […]
