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. :-)

Seasons Greetings

Hello readers, I am sending you best wishes for this festive period.  I hope you had a peaceful Christmas Day and I hope that your New Year's Eve brings fun, reflection and most importantly no hangover on the 1st of January!

Was 2012 a good year for you or are you glad to see the back of it?
Do you have any resolutions or plans for 2013 or will you just take it as it comes?  

I hope to blog a bit more in the New Year as 2013 has got to be the year I get sorted financially and blogging about it always helps me.  If it is not the year, then I fear I am doomed to repeat the same mistakes for the rest of my life and that is a terrible thought!

For now I wish you all the best and I do hope 2013 brings you happiness.

  1. And seasons greetings to you, too. 'Go for it' in 2013 and keep blogging.
    love from Mum

  2. Like you I hope to sort my finances out in 2013 along with a few other areas of my life. I'm new to blogging but so far it's been my secret solitude.
    Have a fantastic New Year xx

  3. Sending loads of best wishes for 2013. Jx

  4. I am hoping to start saving more in 2013, my son is emigrating to Australia this year and I need to do to visit. These last few years have been tough financially but hopefully it will get better soon. Wishing you a happy new year!!

  5. Happy New Year, I wish you everything you wish yourself!
