The Nutcracker Trail, Milford Marina

On Saturday we  took part in the Nutcracker Christmas Trail down Milford Marina.  They always put on great Christmas events (although we're really missing the ice rink- please bring that back) which we like to support each year.

Five Ways to Make Extra Money Every Week

As well as my regular income from my freelance writing and running a blog I always aim to make "extra money" each week.  Extra money can be saved towards a holiday or big purchase, put into savings or used to pay off loans (Cash Lady  advise that it will usually be cheaper to clear your debts early, as you will only be charged the daily interest that you have had the loan open for).    Here are five ways that you can make extra money each week:
