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. :-)

Congratulations Are In Order!

A real quickie but as I am not sure if you will check the comments on my last post, I wanted to put it RIGHT OUT THERE for you you sl.tudor:  


I am amazed and pleased and all those things!  Being in the forties club myself, I do think "YIKES!!" at such news but hey, it IS good news especially in the current atmosphere of doom & gloom.

Better start putting every single penny away now then luv!  :-)

Congrats again, and be assured I am smiling away here!



  1. Aww thank you..i am very happy..me and hubby almost collapsed in the cafe we go to.. i nipped to the ladies to pee on my stick thingy..didn't have to wait 5 mins for the line to appear it popped up immediately...shock is not a word we used..but in the end we both shrugged our shoulders and smiled..another one to add to our little brood...i ahve actually got all my baby clothes and expensive items all shrink wrapped in the loft..
    Plus i am ready for the comments about my age..and the fact that its my 7th baby..
    So i will take great pleasure in knowing that besides myself and hubby..that you are happy for us too...
    thank you

  2. Bless you sl.t - if anyone makes any negative comments, then they are miserable so & so's. Don't you be worrying about them.

    If it makes you feel any better I recently found out my real Gran had 11 kids! :-o
