When we bought our home over 18 months ago we had grand ideas of how we wanted it to turn out. We knew exactly what we wanted to do….. and then our plans changed. It turns out asking a hormonal pregnant woman what she wants is never a good ideas. That’s why we are only just

I’ll be honest – up until a month ago I knew absolutely nothing about Child Benefit. I thought I did, but the information I had was incorrect. That is why it has taken me until Piglet was 14 months old to put in a claim. We will get up to 3 months back dated, but we

Piglet is rocketing towards 15 months old. He is healthy, he is happy and he is learning every day. But he is not walking. He is like lightening when he crawls – that kid can move – but he has little to no interest in getting up on his feet to get around. As with

Most of you will know that I am a stay at home home. I absolutely love it and am so glad I have this opportunity to be with Piglet while he is still so young. The problem with being at home, though, is our financial situation. We have had to adjust to one salary, and

At the weekend JHogg and I got to have one of those elusive date nights. I have been twitching to get out of the house and be just the two of us for quite a while. We have done it twice since Piglet was born, once in July last year as a belated anniversary break
