Easy bookkeeping for young families

Easy bookkeeping for young families

For most young families, bookkeeping is rarely the first thing on their mind. There’s so much else going on in life that leaving money to take care of itself often happens, whether by accident or design.

Simple bookkeeping can help in many ways. From saving for a rainy day to simply anticipating upcoming expenses, when you’re in control of your money you get a sense of security and satisfaction. View Post

Our honeymoon and babymoon in Pembrokeshire

Our honeymoon and babymoon in Pembrokeshire

I’m so excited to have been invited to visit Bluestone for a midweek break this week! Let’s face it, babies are expensive and statutory maternity pay (SMP) isn’t much. As such, there’s been no way of affording a holiday this year. I thought the closest we were going to get was our three weekends away earlier in the year. In May we went to Birmingham to visit This Morning Live and The Baby Show at the NEC Arena. At the beginning of July, we headed up to Nottingham for me to attend Download Festival (I won tickets!) Then at the end of September we went to Manchester for BlogOn.

It was only the beginning of last week that I was looking longingly at photographs I’d taken of Pembrokeshire the last two years and reminiscing. I’m so excited that I’m able to go back this year! I thought I’d write a post about my visits in 2015 for Dave and I’s honeymoon and our first anniversary holiday/babymoon last year.  We’ve visited many of the best attractions and places for tourists to visit in Pembrokeshire.
