Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been getting some thoughts & feelings, exasperations and the odd happy moment down on the blog which helps my sanity and, I hope, provides a little entertaining read for you for a couple of minutes!

Right now I am mostly concentrating on getting through a rocky financial patch which I really hope will be cleared (all being well) by the end of Summer 2013. In the meantime I need to concentrate on continuing to do well in my "new" job (actually got it in Sept 2011 but it still feels new!) and living my life as frugally as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and if you leave me an encouraging comment, it'll make my day. :-)

Just a quickie...proper post later.

I am sure you may have seen QuidCo advert on TV but if you haven't you need to check the site out if you spend money on-line (insurances being a good example).  I have been a member since 2005 and received a fair whack back in that time.  I promise it's not a scam.

Here's a link to get you started if you're new to it and you can then go on to refer other people too.

I hope it's useful to you.



  1. I've been a member of quidco for a couple of years and I got a good amount back from my car insurance. The problem is I don't buy very much to get cashback back on, if you get my drift? I use cash 95% of the time and rarely shop online :(

  2. Hiya keshling. Yes I know what you mean as I don't do massive amounts of shopping online but if I can and if I can do it via QuidCo I am in there!

    Even if you do only use it for insurances then that's a nice amount back in your pocket after a few months....better than a poke in the eye with a stick as someone used to say to me!

  3. A nice post, thanks. I like Quidco and as well as making money from my regular online shopping through it, I have made a decent amount of cash in other ways from it. Details on my blog of how to make a guaranteed minimum of £106 for only 1 hours work.
