Don't Have Kids? Think None of this Applies?

Think Again!

So you don't have kids, you think that all this money & time saving stuff Mum's go on about doesn't apply to you... Well here's news, it can! There are also many OTHER tips for people who are time poor but with some disposable income....

*Buy your fruit & veg at the fruit shop and meat at the butcher, yep you'll save money but you'll get better quality too!

*Do your groceries online and have them delivered, when you're working full-time why waste your weekend at the supermarket?

*Hire a cleaner - once a week / fortnight / month. You might be surprised how affordable it is... And the time you gain is worth it, not to mention the lack of stress that can be associated with keeping house whilst working 40-50 hours a week.

*Learn to follow a recipe and create a yummy meal out of a good cookbook, you'll enjoy the task, the outcome and you might save a few bucks eating at home instead of heading out to the latest & greatest restaurant in town...

*On the flip side... Go out for breakfast often, it will warm your soul, follow it up with a trip to the markets / the city / the beach wherever you want.... Bottom line enjoy YOUR time for YOU!

See... Even with no kids all the same rules apply, use your time & your cash wisely and you'll feel better for it.

Moving Up in the Tech World...& Sewing...

Yesterday I became the new, and admittedly pretty proud, owner of a brand new Ultrabook. In my eyes, the Microsoft equivalent to a MacBook. But that's to a layman like me. In reality I'm sure I am way off.

I have an iPad and I love it, but for what I wanted the MacBook's were just too much of a financial investment. So I went on the hunt for something speedy (to handle my photos), something light (to carry around the house) and something smallish (to sit on my lap). AND it had to be within budget, and look okay too.

Two visits to Harvey Norman later - we have changed our HN of choice for purchases after receiving lackluster service at our original preferred store. And I walked out happy as a pig in the proverbial with a Toshiba Ultrabook - 4gb ram, 32mb SSD, 13.3 inch screen, and Windows 8! (But no touch screen)

Windows 8 is a trip. Everything has an app, so it's like your ipad, on a computer. But the standard desktop and Windows set up is running in the background - acc…

Be Yourself.

Heard this for the first time yesterday... it made me smile. Be yourself.

Taco Tuesday, Bunday Monday, Sunday Roast.

And so the list goes!
Many would be familiar with Taco Tuesday, and a definitive Aussie culture is the Sunday Roast.
My 6 year old last week coined Bunday Monday! This means on Mondays we eat buns with various fillings.
Week 1 was YIAH slow cooked pulled pork with homemade coleslaw, on brioche.
Week 2 was YIAH La Parissiene meat patties with salad - essentially a hamburger - on tiger buns.
It's not fancy, it only classifies as healthy because it's homemade and comes with salad but the most important thing about all of it is my 6 year old son is involved in the process.
He named the funny meal day after working to find a word that rhymes with Monday, he has chosen the bread rolls each week and as a result is keen to eat what's in them. 
Anyone with a six year old will understand the magnitude of a new food item being added to the revolving repertoire at this age. 
So If Bunday Monday means cucumber and lettuce being eaten, roll on next Monday!
