    How did we get here? 16th Apr 18 at 1:56 PM
    So life kind if took over! In the last 3 years we've relocated and moved house 4 times, got married and had a baby. Subsequently this has left me with nearly 16k on credit cards. Now i'm on maternity leave, I seem to be living off them. Not good, I know

    I'm starting a new mission, I want to be rid of debt and enjoy my child growing up without the stress of money weighing me down.

    Here it goes!!!
