Christmas Budgeting: Avoid These Money Mistakes

Christmas Budgeting: Avoid These Money Mistakes

Christmas is one of the most joyful holidays in the world, when we get overwhelmed with feelings of warmth and love. It brings out the child in all of us, and we can’t be too old for Christmas feelings we get when we find the perfect present for someone, see the lights of the Christmas tree, wake up on Christmas morning, or hear our favorite Christmas carols.

However, we’re parents, and it’s our responsibility to provide everything for a perfect Christmas holiday. Yes, we are talking about budgeting, and as the holiday approaches, some people get anxious because they don’t know whether they can afford it or not. Thus, the biggest money mistake – using your credit card for Christmas splurging, which leads to overspending and paying high interest rates in the months to come. To avoid this, you can rely on other types of financial help, such as small personal loans. View Post

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 1

Christmas at Bluestone: Day 1

As is often the way at this time of year, there are lots of nasty bugs and viruses going around. I’ve managed to catch a lot of them, being unwell from the end of September until now (with the exception of only one week!) I’ve been particularly poorly over the last couple of weeks since we got back from Bluestone. Unfortunately, it’s put me behind with everything. My poor little blog has had hardly any attention. Just working and looking after Autumn has taken up all my energy!

Anyway, that’s enough whining. I’m excited because I can finally write about our lovely week at Bluestone, visiting Elftopia (Kingdom of the Elves) and seeing many of the things that Christmasland had to offer! I’ve been itching to write a diary of our week. It will be lovely for Autumn to look back on when she’s older! View Post

Must visit London attractions for Christmas & New Year

There’s something special about London. It’s such a vibrant city with so much to see and do. Whilst it’s lovely to take a picnic in St James’ Park and see the changing of the guards in the summer and visit Greenwich Park in the Autumn, this time of year brings with it a new kind of magic.

A letter to my daughter at 14 months

A letter to my daughter at 14 months

Dear Autumn,

This month we’ve been busy bees! Speaking of which, one of your most favourite TV programmes is Maya the Bee and you love saying “Bee! Bee!” As the weather has turned colder, we’ve been staying indoors a bit more. However, we’ve still managed to get out and about exploring. You even went on your first holiday! Let’s take a little look at your month… View Post
