Stop telling me what to do!

    I am so fed up of being told what to do, who to follow, how to raise your social following by 10,000 a day, how to lose 6 stone in an hour. “I went from being a total jobless, drug addict to earning £70,000 a day, overnight” Erm… no, you didn’t. I follow

Christmas is coming…(I’m sorry but it is)

  Christmas for many people is happy and magical. The smell of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, snowmen, twinkly lights, decorating the tree, Christmas carols. It’s an enchanting time and I for one believe there is still some Christmas magic kicking about somewhere. It can, however, be an extremely chaotic time for most people.

Do you have a plan for the future?

Are you ready for retirement?   You’re 33? 23? Have you had any thought at all about what you might do when the time comes to retire? Of course you haven’t, it’s another 30-40 years off, why would you want to be stressing about something that’s way off in the future? You might even be

How to survive..A day out

I love a good day out, to the park, a museum, the beach. I’m not the biggest fan of people. People can be the total ruin of my day! I’m making progress though..I’d say that I like at least 3 more people now than I did this time last year 😀 Here’s 5 “rules” I

Frozen – What would you do?

    What would I do if time froze for an hour for everyone but me? Well to be completely honest I would probably waste the entire hour because I’d be freaking out wondering why on earth everyone was frozen, then they’d unfreeze and I’d be kicking myself because I’d just wasted an entire hour

My teenager and money

A few days ago I posted about my son and his financial knowledge. I included a diagram of my bank account activity and promised to enlighten you all with a follow-up regarding his insight and opinion… First and foremost I managed to coax him out of his room with promises of hot chocolate and pieces of

Does your teenager know the real value of money?

I spoke to my 13-year-old son the other day about learning the value of money. My Dad used to say this to me when I was younger every time I asked for some money for the shop and I always thought “Well, I know the value of money” whilst looking down in to my hand.

Do you love your job?

    I want to do everything. That is my downfall. I want to read all of the books, watch all the films and I most definitely want to see all the places. I desperately want to visit the  Pyramids, the deserts of Nevada, the Great Wall of China, The Himalayas, the ancient Incan Empire
