Very good. I’m having to be very cheap right now as I am not earning a living. I walk everywhere (yesterday, I walked 4 miles to save £1.20) yes, I know that sounds extreme but it’s the only way to stretch my money. I buy my eggs in one shop, my apples in another and so on. I shop around and buy whatever I need where it is cheaper. It takes time to do this but it’s worth it in the end 🙂

Plus all that walking will improve your health and your happiness!

Health and wellness + $ savings = 1 smart cookie!

3. I am married to my BFF whose initials are BF.
4. The best day of my life -> the day I stopped practicing law.
5. I hate to follow rules or recipes, so I became an artist.
6. Writing is my favorite way to while away the day.
7. Music makes my heart soar.
