8 things I’ve learned in 8 years of marriage

Today marks 8 years since my lovely husband and I got married. The day started with a little rain, and then it brightened up into blissful sunshine. This really sums up our 11.5 years together so far! We’ve had a little rain along the way, and a few storms, but today, to mark our 8th wedding anniversary I want to share 8 things I’ve learned in 8 years of marriage. I’ve written this post in advance as Thomas and I are enjoying a well deserved day together today! We are going to do a little shopping, eat out and spend time in each other’s company while Daisy is at Nursery.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #74 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one so far. We’ve had a really good week. I’ve got back on track with work and I’m feeling motivated and productive for the months ahead! Meal planning is something that I have come to enjoy and running this linky in particular. I love to see what meals people are cooking and get some inspiration from others.

I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving.

Let’s start talking about self-medication and mental health (AD)

AD. If you follow me on social media you may already know that I am a big advocate for mental health, and talking about it. Talking about mental health is something that can still be seen as a taboo subject, just like talking about family finances, death and even lifestyle habits. Having seen first hand the devastation that mental health conditions can have on family & friends I want to ensure I’m doing what I can to foster conversations that help people. Today I want to talk to you about the Let’s Start Talking campaign from the life insurance broker LifeSearch and my own experience of self-medicating when my mental health was low.
