  • What’s Love got to do with it? Cheaper to Cheat than Divorce

    By A Modern Military Mother on June 2, 2016
    I have just received this revolting press release which simply states that divorce is not cost effective and so it’s more cost effective to stay married in an unhappy relationship and have an affair then it is to get divorced. Indeed, everyone should conduct themselves with complete and utter disregard for another human being’s feelings and a lack for respect […]

  • Who wants to be a millionaire?

    By on May 28, 2014
    Cole Porter sang, ” who wants to be a millionaire?” and the reply was ‘I do’. What do women want? If you had a Millionaire Genie what wishes would you have granted. Aladdin may have needed a magic lamp to grant his wishes, but you could also try the Millionaire Genie slots game at 888ladies because he knows what women […]

  • Invest In Me

    By on April 9, 2014
    If I had £5000 to play with I would invest it in my next book ‘I Hate Housework’. A book is a business; a start up. I know that in order to drive sales and get the book into bookshops I need to be able to order a print run and invest in marketing. It’s the law of speculate to […]

  • Teaching Kids Good Money Management

    By on November 21, 2013
    It’s incredible how much kids learn at school. From the useful stuff like maths and science, to the stuff you maybe don’t want them to know that they learn from their friends! The general consensus amongst most parents and school leavers alike, however, is that more real life skills should be taught in schools. Many kids leave for university with […]

  • If you don’t have a pension, read this. If you think you might need one.. read this.

    By on October 23, 2013
    There is little point in fighting for equal rights in relatively speaking, marginal areas, if we don’t address the basic fundamentals. Normally, when a product provider releases a ‘study’, I treat it as a glorified sales hack.  Not so the latest Scottish Widows annual Women and Pensions Report, released this morning. It shows the latest pension savings position for women […]

  • Five top tips for building your pension

    By on October 17, 2013
    For many, the idea of a pension – or having to actually do something about it – seems remote and strange. It seems like a bridge they’ll ‘cross when they come to it’ and, strangely enough, they refuse to come to it for many years. In short, it seems to many like something to live on when you’re old and […]

  • My partner isn’t my pension!

    By on September 25, 2013
    Parallel play is a form of interaction where children play adjacent to each other but do not always try to influence each other, or even engage with each other.  They benefit from proximity, they are interested in what each other are doing and they’ll sometimes modify their play accordingly. I wonder then, in these days of independently minded thinking and […]

  • Reclaiming lost child benefit – because you need it more than the state

    By on September 24, 2013
    You don’t need me to tell you.  For service families these days, life is grim.  No wage increases, longer absences, pension decimation, career uncertainty, lower budgets all round.  To add insult to injury, if you or your partner earns more than £50,000 per annum (and you won’t need me to tell you this either) the government has taken away some […]

  • Labour party buying military votes?

    By on September 23, 2013
    Lots of talk this morning in the Labour party conference about naming streets after those who die in our names and making it an offence to beat up servicemen (isn’t it already then?).  Isn’t this grasping at straws and I wonder what Labour has in mind for the families, spouses and partners?  I wonder where the money for more childcare […]
