It’s been four weeks since my last post as my “Season of Stress” took over and this blog was lower down on my list of priorities.

I love Gretchen Rubin’s podcast “Happier” where she and her sister Elizabeth Craft talk about strategies to increase happiness and build better habits. Episode 167 caught my attention particularly when they discussed the “Season of Stress” – a period of time that you know will be particularly busy and stressful for whatever reason – and … More My Season of Stress ...

Over the August bank holiday weekend, we took a LONG road trip all the way up to the Highlands of Scotland and it was amazing! We drove up to Dundee on the Friday afternoon (about halfway, a 4-5 hour drive) and spent the night in a lovely hotel – Apex City Quay Hotel and Spa. … More Budget for Travel – Caithness, Scotland ...

We all have a relationship with money whether positive or negative. Many of the words we use around wealth have negative associations – greed, entitled, selfish, shame, fear of loss, pretentious, self-worth – and this can affect our mental state and encourages a limiting belief in how successful we can be (however you define success). … More Developing an abundance mindset ...

We’ve just got back from another and slightly longer camping trip, this time up to the highlands of Scotland which was brilliant and we got better weather! It was a bit more expensive this time and I will do a full post on camping and its associated finances. We’ve got a hotel weekend away coming … More Progress Update – August 2018 ...

This year is going so fast! Or is that just because I’m in my 30s now? Life does seem to speed by more and more the older I get! I thought it might be a good idea to take stock of my first 6 months as a landlord. I got my first rent income in … More My first 6 months as a landlord ...

After listening to J from Millenial Boss and the brilliant FIRE Drill Podcast talking about her career on the equally brilliant Choose FI podcast, I started thinking how my own career (and life for that matter) hasn’t been a steady incline either – less like a ladder and more like a jungle gym!
