  2. Make money from home and online with The Money Shed

    Today I am sharing with you one of the best online resources for making money from home as a parent, a student, on the side, part time or even full time!  This amazing resource is the website The Money Shed.  It’s a HUGE online community of likeminded folk who want to earn decent money from home, online and using phone apps WITHOUT filling out 10p surveys for hours on end and making a pittance.

    The website is dedicated to finding and sharing the ways that actually pay a decent amount of money and are worth your precious time.  The Money Shed is ran by Jon who I one day stumbled across on Twitter.  I can’t remember exactly how, but it’s no wonder our paths suddenly crossed as I became more interested in working from home full time by mystery shopping, blogging and matched betting.  Jon does all these things too and is more than happy to share his experience and encourages others to share theirs in his forum.

    Make money from home and online with The Money Shed

    I’m thankful that most of the people I’ve met online who do the same as me are more than willing to help each other and build each other up.  It’s an amazing feeling when we can all help one another instead of competing or knocking each other down.  The TMS forum is exactly one of these kinds of places - a place for everyone to share knowledge and learn from each other.  Every success is celebrated, whether it’s the first pound you’ve earned from home by yourself, or the thousandth.

    If you have a question or are stuck on something, simply ask.  Jon says questions are typically answered within one hour and no question is too silly.

    Looking for a Roamler invite code?

    If you are serious about wanting to make money from home, then I suggest you check out the forums.  Plus, if you’ve been struggling to get an invite code for one of the best money making apps Roamler, you’re in luck!  Once you’ve submitted at least 10 good quality posts to the forum, Jon will give you a code! 

    Click here to join The Money Shed today and start earning!

  3. Bella Interview: 5 years and 3 months old

    It’s been seven months since I interviewed my daughter Bella, so it’s time for another interview with my now five year old!  I’m sick of hearing myself say it, but it’s because I can’t quite believe how it does happen, but time really does go so so so quickly when you have children and it speeds up even more once they start school.  Bella has finished a whole year of school and will no longer be a newbie in reception, but is now a year one!  Wowsers.

    I’m going to interview Bella every few months as it’s so cute to interview her, but also I’m intrigued to see how her answers change as she grows up.  It will also be a great memory for her to look back on.

    If you missed Bella’s previous interviews, you can catch up here:

    Bella Interview: 5 years and 3 months old

    What would you like to be when you grow up?

    Uuuuuuum I really want to be a swimming teacher.  I like teaching.  Reuben says he wants to eat chocolate.

    Do you not want to be a fairy anymore?

    No! (Lots of giggling!)

    Who is your favourite person?

    Reuben because he is my best friend.

    Who is your best friend at school?


    What is your favourite thing to do at school?

    I like to go outside and play.  I like to play on the smart board.

    Where is your favourite place to go?

    At school.

    What is your favourite colour?

    Red and pink.

    What’s your favourite vegetable?

    Carrots and potatoes.  They are nice and healthy.

    What’s your favourite fruit?

    Strawberries and raspberries.  They are yummy.

    What’s your favourite thing to do?

    Eat pizza, because I like the cheese!

    What’s your favourite animal?

    Giraffes.  They are as tall as houses!

    Aaw!  Some surprising answers!  Usually Bella always wants to be a fairy or a mermaid, so a swimming teacher was a surprise!  I think it’s because there were some new starts in her swimming lesson this week and she got to help show them what to do.  It’s so cute she says her little brother, Reuben, is her favourite person.  Just recently she said she’ll marry Reuben when she’s grown up!  Pink is still her favourite colour, of course.  She loves fruit and veg – the only one she really dislikes is sweet potatoes, but she’ll always try them when I make them.  I had no idea she’d say giraffes as her fave animal, I was expecting fish or chickens as that’s what we have at home.  I love giraffes too, so it’s a great answer.
