Saving to Travel More

I always have plans to go on holiday, but a few things get in the way; money, work, and being a responsible parent! As my daughter is getting older, this is becoming less of a struggle, she has a great group of friends with amazing parents, who happily (at least that’s what they tell me!) …

Enjoy the Drive

This week I have done a fair bit of driving for work, this is a part of my job I really enjoy. Getting out of the office and meeting new people, gives me a break from the monotony. I normally pick the most direct route to the destination so that I can beat the sat …

Hotel or Hostel

Eeek my diary is booking up fast! This weekend I’m off to Bath for a very close friend’s hen party. I’m can’t wait to relax in the spa. I’m not even worried that my wobbly belly will be on show! I can’t relax too much though, as I have been told we will be dancing …
