Freeing up more money for the things that matter most

*contributed collaborative post

As many people have observed throughout history, it’s really difficult to imagine ever having “too much money.”

No matter what your particular situation is in life, whether you’re single, or have a family who depends on you, it’s inevitable that you will find yourself feeling – at least sometimes – that it would really be great if you’d have a bit more income, and a few less expenses.

5 things I never thought I’d hear myself say #SoberLiving

When I made a passing comment last week about considering going vegetarian, the look on Dad Muddling Through’s face said it all. I get it though, I do, because over the last half a year, he must wonder who this person stood before him is, and what the hell happened to his wife.

Six months alcohol free. Spot the difference…

While we’re all grumbling about how long this winter has dragged on, and how the summer feels FOREVER ago, I’m quietly celebrating just how long ago August was, because it’s been an extraordinary six months since I decided to embark on a personal experiment of a life alcohol free.

Slinging my wrap for #SellOneThing #TeamMum @childdotorg

I’ve written previously about my short but sweet experience of babywearing; how I was determined to nail the whole wrapped up baby on your chest thing that I’d watched from afar in wonder with my first child.

#SellOneThing – My fundraising campaign for #TeamMum @Childdotorg

Motherhood. Here in the U.K. it’s finally become okay to open up and talk about how tough it can be. The sleepless nights, the never ending nappies, the loss of identity. Let alone the unexpected health issues which can crop up along the way – breastfeeding troubles, tongue tie, post natal depression, constipation, lactose intolerance…I could go on but let’s face it, we all know the score.

Three steps towards better health

*contributed collaborative post

Health treatments are a continuously evolving machine. What we don’t see as patients, is the work that is going on behind the scenes to make products that are designed to help us; ranging from creams treating excessive facial hair in women to new immune system supplements.

Fighting away those January blues in South Aylesford M&S Food Hall of dreams,

*collaborative post

January is a long, dark, cold month, there’s no escaping that. That said, I have a lot of love for January. It’s a time for new beginnings, reflection on where you’ve been and for getting your mindset into how you could take steps to get yourself in the best shape for the year ahead.

The twelve #AlcoholFree drinks of #sober Christmas

Apologies for once again, banging on about the new found life sans alcohol. I realise to some folk this is a total turn off, however I’m relishing in the amazement that I actually chose to spend a whole Christmas (well, five months and counting to be precise) declining any alcoholic beverages. It’s frankly the shock of the century, and to no one more than me. So forgive me whilst I celebrate my own achievements, humour me whilst I enjoy the ride on the sober train, albeit being a total trainspotter bore. more “The twelve #AlcoholFree drinks of #sober Christmas”
