My First Online Income Report: April 2017

work from home

At the end of February 2017, I left a well-paid and secure full-time job in Administration to work from home for myself.

The dream was always there, however, of one day…

The BBC Good Food Show Goody Bag

BBC Good Food Show goody bag

If you attend a trade show or any other type of big exhibition, it is often an expensive day out. Not only do the tickets sometimes cost a fair bit, but you also end up tempted to buy everything you see on all the stalls and stands. I went to the BBC Good Food Show this year, which was an amazing day out. I went home laden with bags of new foods and drinks I wanted to try out. Everything…
