How Your Looks Change As You Get Older

Growing up I never once thought about how much your body, in particular your hair would change. When you are in your twenties and thirties, well to be quite honest, nothing really changes.

Looking Cool: My Sunday Photo

It’s hard to believe that my twin girls will be seven years old on their next birthday. They grow so quickly and develop their own personalities and characters.

R is a thinker, in fact she probably overthinks things, just… [Read More]

Unexpected Moments When I Needed Money Quickly

When you first get married and have bought or are renting your first home, there is a lot of expense and there is no doubt it’s very tough to balance the books.

Thankfully things have changed since then, and nowadays… [Read More]

For that reason I’m all for embracing the internet and everything it has to offer, but… There is always a but! More so when it comes to… [Read More]
