Getting the Keys

So if you’re a regular reader you might be a little puzzled by this one. Well in a Nutshell, with three Months of pretty much no sleep, 110% effort daily and squeezing our savings we’ve found our Dream House and placed an offer. If you haven’t already read the previous posts catch up here and here then this post might make a little more sense.

With this said, I’ll throw out my apologies for the lack of blogging over the last few weeks. It’s not that I’ve fallen out of love with writing, I feel like I’ve just been putting all my efforts into this dream and it’s slowly becoming more a reality by the day.

I’m not one for being sentimental at all. I’ve always been one for memories are just a happy place in your head. This was until Helen started putting up photos all around the house. No, literally, they’re taking over the fridge and the walls. Im sure they’re just breeding!

I now love the idea that a picture can bring back nostalgic feelings and memories that I had totally forgot about. I also love the HP Social Media Snapshots app as I can take any of my favourite instagram or Facebook photos and print them straight off and hang them up! Look below to see how easy it is.

Month One Mortgage Report

So how did Month One Earnings go? If you haven’t already read my post last month about Fast Tracking a Mortgage Deposit in less than a year, then go have a read here, then this post might make a little more sense.

So in July 2016 the target was set. We aimed to save £20,000 to £30,000 in 12 months. The goal is to ideally earn £1,600 to £2,500 a month. I bet you are just thinking, Chris, Come On get to the numbers already!?

It’s safe to say the target was well and truly smashed in July. View Post

Rio 2016

In less than 4 days all eyes will be on Rio for just over two weeks. The Olympics is finally back on our screens. To me it only seems like yesterday that the focus was on London for the 2012 games.

God knows how some of these athletes can perform in the scorching heat in Brazil but good luck to every single one of them!

There’s quite a few events that I’m looking forward to watching, but I can guarantee that the Wife will walk in and just change it to the Gymnastics. For me its all about watching Usain Bolt, granted he’s not Team GB but who doesn’t love someone that eats a box of McDonalds Chicken Nuggets before winning the 100M Gold Medal!? Legend.

How many times are we going to see the “MOBOT” celebration. I still remember this celebration being created on A League of their Own!

Fast Forward Five Years

I can’t actually believe how happy I am, and its not even me thats spent a gruelling five years studying at University its my little baby brother. Little and baby are probably not the best use of words because he couldn’t be any more grown up. He’s now a fully fledged qualified Doctor and I couldn’t be any more proud. I don’t know where he got the brains from, but he’s bagged himself a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery. If you want a Proud brother picture, then look no further. I just want to share it with the world.
