Hello! What a month it has been. We’ve been able to enjoy the garden lots, finally seen a few members of our family and even enjoyed a couple of BBQs by ourselves at home. I have barely had a minute to look at my aims, so to be honest it’ll be a bit of a surprise to see how I’ve done as I write this out!! Here are the results of my July 2020 aims – hope you enjoy.Continue reading
As you read this post I’m actually on holiday! I’ve had lots of free holidays thanks to matched betting earnings. When I say free I mean that I’m free to choose where we go, as we have a nice budget to play with. We can go anywhere we want really. In recent years we’ve bene able to go to Centerparcs 4 or 5 times and enjoying a few weekends away along the way too. We always stay in the nicer lodges, and really enjoy a break with our family. It’s fab!
I’m a firm believer that if you work hard you deserve to treat yourself. However, I’m also someone who wants to buy a house, have a nice car and have savings in the bank. This is why I love to earn free holidays by matched betting. Be sure to read my pros and cons of matched betting for a really honest insight into the good and bad side of matched betting.Continue reading
2016 was definitely the year that matched betting took off in a BIG way for me and it has continued for the past few years. I have been matched betting for 4 years now so felt it time to update this post. Matched betting is a fantastic way to make additional money – and best of all it is a perfectly legal way to make a little money from casinos and bookmakers!Continue reading
Good morning! Hope you’re well. I’ve had a nice productive week, and can’t really believe there is just ONE more week before Daisy leaves Nursery forever! Wow! Anyway, here is my meal plan for the week before I start getting soppy!
Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food. I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.Continue reading
Baking is such a great way to express gratitude to someone when being invited to their home. You can make most recipes MILES cheaper than shop bought and they usually taste a lot better fresh from the oven too! These chocolate chip brioche rolls are soft, fluffy, delicious and super tasty when freshly made.
I love to cook and bake. I may not be the most skilful, or most artistic, but I really enjoy it. There are some recipes that are ridiculously lengthy to make and can almost feel like a chore. Croissants, bread, chocolate chip brioche rolls, panettone and Christmas cake are just a few that spring to mind.
I have a lovely *Panasonic SD-2501 breadmaker that makes all of the above recipes a doddle. After a remark from my husband recently about chocolate chip brioche rolls I decided to make up a batch of dough. If you want to get started right away then scroll near the end of the post for my chocolate chip brioche rolls recipe card.Continue reading
