Two weeks ago we said farewell to my brother in law who has finally made the move to be with his long-term girlfriend in Denmark. They have been long distance for almost the entirety of their relationship so it’s great to finally see them living together. Now that he has somewhat settled into his new home, I had a chance to reflect on what his life changing move has had on us.
Hello again. I am now back at work full time while my husband stays home to look after our son temporarily (here is some more information about Shared Parental Leave). Receiving my first full pay cheque after several months of maternity pay was a welcome relief and I made sure that we went back into full savings mode. This included a £300 lump sum into the Lifetime ISA and slowly increasing the other regular payments I make into our other savings accounts (for more information about how we’re saving for our house, see my previous post on the topic). One of those accounts is our emergency fund.
So last week, I dipped my toe into the blogging world and wrote my first post explaining how I wanted to document our journey into home ownership. For this post I’m going to go into how we’re saving and the reasoning behind it.
