Tips for good bookkeeping when self-employed

Being self-employed and your ‘own boss’ can be very rewarding and worthwhile, but hard work.

With many positive benefits to be had to being self-employed and running your own business along with dire employment opportunities it is no surprise that many people dream of being their own boss.

Whether you are already self-employed or considering taking the plunge into self-employment there are many financial issues to consider such as registering self-employed with the HRMC, having the funds to start-up your self-employed venture, implementing an emergency reserve fund, and keeping on top of your earnings.

Matchstick Monkey - teething toy review


Teething can be a nightmare.

It is horrible to see your little one in pain and discomfort as their first teeth come through.

Jelly Bean seems to be following his big brother’s experience of teething…..a long and painful drawn out experience. Like his brother before him Jelly Bean only had a couple of teeth pop out before his first birthday, and now at the age of 19 months old he still only has 5 teeth. Whilst he has not got many teeth making their appearance yet they make sure he knows about them when they do.


We do our best to help him through teething and have tried all manner of teething aids to try and make the experience a little less painful and horrible for him.

Along with tackling teething we are enthusiastic about caring for his teeth by visits to the dentist and daily brushing. Thankfully he LOVES brushing his teeth !
