Happy Sunday! Have you had a good week? It seems to have gone really slowly here, but that’s because I am waiting on two things; the fact that we are this close to having all of the building work done. In fact, it might even be done by the end of today! Second, I have...

Another dividend income post! To be honest, I knew that after May’s bumper payout, June would almost seem like a let down.

Hello July! I am not sad to see the back of June, as it didn’t really go to plan. I am hoping that July goes much better, in every area. It should be a fairly quiet month, apart from paying the final bill from our builders (which is quite a lot) but that should be...

Goodbye June! It honestly feels like it has been the longest month ever. Does anyone else feel like that? June seems to have just dragged on and on; I have not enjoyed it one bit. I’m not sure why either? Just lots of things going on plus it feels like we’ve had to spend a...
