Daisy is 16 months old

Here we go again. Another blinking month has gone by in a flash. Unreal! Anyway, here I am, documenting what Daisy has been up to in the past month… When I finally sit down to write this I always find myself feeling a little stumped because I haven’t prepared and it is always late at night when I finally cobble this together. I love having these posts to look back on so here is what Daisy has been up to now she is 16 months old.

Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 21st July

This week has flown by! Probably because Daisy starts nursery on Monday! Eek. Anyway, I’ve had a fantastic week. We’ve been very productive at the allotment, online and at home. We also enjoyed a lovely day off together on Tuesday. My husband is working super hard at the moment which means we don’t have a huge amount of time together. This does however give me more time to focus on being frugal. Here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 21st July post.

Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 14th July

This week saw my husband return back to work. This means that I have had a little less time than in more recent weeks. Which was actually fine. I’ve been a bit under the weather too so a day off was needed. I’m feeling on the mend now and getting back to the usual routine. Here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 14th July post.

How do I get everything done?

Something that I get asked, quite frequently, is ‘How do I get everything done?’. I assume that most of the time people mean working on my blog, running an allotment, looking after my home/family, baking, cooking, seeing the people I love regularly and making time for hobbies too. I don’t have a magic formula. I’m also not better than anyone else at these things, that I know of. However, today I thought I would write a post to share with you just how I get everything done. This post isn’t designed to show that I’m awesome, or make anyone else feel inadequate.

I am hoping that by sharing some insights into my average week I might give someone a few tips. Or some motivation to change their own life. Alternatively, I might make someone else feel that they ARE rocking their own life. Which I think most of us are. If you want to skip this 2,500 word monstrosity just scroll on down near the bottom. I’ve made a few small lists!
