Things I’ve Finished – July

First of all I am going to say I was completely naive with how much time went into blogging. How do people do it where they post every day, work full time, have friends, have kids, drink water and blink! Commuting is really taking up much more time than I imagined - an extra 15 … Continue reading Things I’ve Finished – July

Things I’ve Finished – June

It has not been an exciting month here on the Central Coast for us. While we are just about settled into our new home we are definitely finding it an adjustment. We are both still commuting into Sydney every day. 78km each way. Every day. It is dark when we leave for work in the … Continue reading Things I’ve Finished – June

A Weekend in Villa Lago

A group of 8 of us headed 4 hours north of Sydney for the Easter not recent long weekend to Villa Lago at Coomba. I've been meaning to write this post for awhile! Apparently we have stayed in the same holiday home as Russell Crowe, as you do. We divided the shopping duties between two … Continue reading A Weekend in Villa Lago

And they called it Puppy Love

  I know, I know, at the beginning of this blog I said that we were not going to be moving from our rented apartment in a fancy area to change our life so much to be able to get closer to getting a house. But goal posts change. About a puppy length. A cocker … Continue reading And they called it Puppy Love

Tangled – Lush

A few more birthdays ago than I care to admit my lovely cousin sent me a care package from Ireland. One of the little treats from home was from one of my favourite shops - Lush. I had never used one of their hair treatments  and didn't know what to do with it so it … Continue reading Tangled – Lush

Things I’ve Finished This Month – May

Woah - Is it really June already? How did that happen? What a month May has been, so many changes, so many exciting things happening and no money saved and budgets well and truly blown.  More to come on that later. This month was very productive, there have been a few products I've been using … Continue reading Things I’ve Finished This Month – May

A Little Late, But a Whole Lotta Chocolate

To assist in not spending money I thought it would make sense to start baking more and do more home cooking. So of course just before Easter I stumbled across this recipe for Creme Egg Rocky Road. It didn't look difficult to make and I've always said I should make my own Rocky Road so … Continue reading A Little Late, But a Whole Lotta Chocolate

Things I’ve finished this month- April

It's been a pretty hectic April with a lot of decisions being made and not much budgeting happening. One of the things I did stay on track with is my reading. I've loved reading for years but surprisingly I don't take a lot of books from the library. I hate having to give books back … Continue reading Things I’ve finished this month- April

With Friends Like These

It's not so bad living on a budget when your work events take you out for twilight racing on Sydney Harbour. The perks of the job. It also makes me appreciate all we've done to stay in this beautiful city and how hard we have worked. There have been days and weeks where we struggled … Continue reading With Friends Like These
