I find having this blog helps because it … More Review of the Year 2018 ...

I’m just coming to the end of a very busy holiday season and two weeks off and I can’t believe I’m only now getting round to writing here.

Where has the year gone? I’ve been investing for a whole year and it has flown by! It’s been another busy month and I’ve not posted as often as I’d like. After my season of stress, I took my foot off the accelerator but perhaps slowed down a bit too much and now I feel … More Progress Update – November 2018 ...

My Season of Stress is over and I’m enjoying a few well earned days off, although much of this has been used catching up with various chores – no rest for the wicked! I’m pleased with how well I’ve coped during this super busy month; I had moments where I felt overwhelmed but I feel … More Progress Update – October ...

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. But I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and I’ve taken advantage of a few days off from my day job to catch up … More Budget for Travel – Staycation, Greater Manchester ...

I’m in the middle of my “Season of Stress” so blog posts this month will have to be short and sweet! This month my assets have increased to £399k and my liabilities have decreased to £171k leaving my net worth at £228k a small £3k increase equating to nearly 1.5%. It was quite an expensive … More Progress Update – September 2018 ...

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 ...
