3 Ingredient Homemade Tim Tam Ice Cream

2019-07-23T08:15:36+11:00

I have spent most of June and July using up all the items we had in the fridge, freezer and pantry since we started using the cash envelope system. We have used up a lot of items with the help of Pinterest and Google. But one item had me stumped. Condensed Milk. I knew that I could make fudge using the condensed milk but that felt a little too boring. Once again I found myself browsing recipes on Pinterest and I came across homemade ice cream. All of the recipes were simple enough, using minimal ingredients. And it didn't take [...]

Learning How To Give Myself Grace

2019-07-18T20:47:47+11:00

I have recently been learning how to give myself grace, particularly when it comes to my daughter. I’ve inherited a trait from my dad that I’ve only just noticed: impatience. I am very impatient with a short temper when it comes to my daughter. And it doesn’t take long before I start to feel how I did at the peak of my postnatal depression.

One Month into the Cash Envelope System

2019-07-11T20:12:57+11:00

We have been using the cash envelope system for one month now and it’s time to tally everything up to see how we did. Unfortunately, we used most of the money set aside. Which is actually ok, because it was set aside for a certain purpose. I am keeping track of how much is left at the end of each month, assuming we are going to continue with this method for a while. For me, I like the idea of trying to have more and more left over each month. Cash Envelope balances at the end of month one Groceries [...]

2019-06-28T19:38:37+11:00

New mums get so much advice. Sometimes it's useful. Other times it's just uncalled for. Here are the top 9 things I would tell any new mum. Get out of the house by yourself or with a friend ASAP I believe that taking my daughter out to lunch with my sister in law when she was less than a week old helped me in the long run.
