Our Frugal Lifestyle

My photo
Passionate about eco-frugality. I used to party hard, clubbing my way from pay-packet to pay-packet. Never getting ahead, just getting by. Then came our much wanted baby with no savings in the bank - only an old car. Changes were made to our lifestyle and we didn't turn back. In the past 6yrs we purchased a flat, found employment, lived below our means, built an emergency fund, purchased a reliable car and saw the financial benefits of our frugal lifestyle. Our only debt is our mortgage. Our aim is to manage our cash flow wisely, pay off our home quickly and eventually work for pleasure, not necessity. Join us on our journey, share insights, tips and tricks to help us and others to get ahead while having a good time.

A Bit of Christmas Sillyness

A bit of sillyness never goes astray when life gets tough. I'll share with you all, my big drama that ended the week in tomorrows post. You'll then know why it's been a extra challenging week.. so stay tuned. However for now here is a silly picture of ME!
Ho Ho Ho Sillyness All The Way.
We have been working on our workplace Christmas card that we email out to about 200 staff in 170 schools from city to bush to desert. I decided to go silly instead of sensible or pretty.

Personally I don't usually celebrate Christmas. I was brought up travelling a great deal as a child and most of my Christmases were spent in Muslim, Buddhist or Hindu countries. My mum would give me a small gift and usually a tin of condensed milk (LOVE IT!!!). I am not religious so I don't follow Christianity, however I am celebrating a little bit of the season festivities for Dolly who loves Santa and the magic of it all. I would like to incorporate other cultural festivities in our lives too.

Do feel free to tell me how gorgeous I am  :-)
