#CoolMumClub Linky week 110

Aaaarghh it’s a bitter sweet Thursday for #CoolMumClub! It’s our last link up until after the summer holidays, as usual Talya and I are going to be popping our host duties on hold as we straddle summer with the kids and have to minimise blogging commitments. Of course who doesn’t love a bit of a rest from usual duties, so whilst we’ll miss you all, we’ll also be living our best summer lives and will be right back before you know it, refreshed and raring to go. more “#CoolMumClub Linky week 110”

*collaborative post

I left home when I was around nineteen, and into my first rented property with my then boyfriend. In the years that followed I hopped to and from other rented properties with him, then with a housemate, and later on my own, before finally stepping onto the property ladder with my to-be-husband in my mid twenties. more “RENT – What to look for in a rental property #MyFirstRentalHome”
