Me and my husband-to-be just moved out of our lovely home and into a smaller and cheaper flat, as Brexit wiped 400€ off my wages each month due to the exchange rate, we had to give up what we already thought was a bargain of a deal and move into something smaller...
It's unfurnished, which means its cheaper, but we have to paint it and buy furniture, right now we're loving the camping feel, but maybe something soft to sit would be nice. So we raising some money to go around the second hand shops, we've got our eye on a nice table and 4 chairs!
But losing all that money each month due to the exchange rate drop, didn't just effect where we live, but our plans for the future.
We're also trying to plan a wedding, we've been engaged for two and a half years, together for almost 5, and we hoped to save a decent amount to have a low cost wedding in February 2018..... (I gave up smoking to start saving! That's how determined I am) So what ever we have left will be spent in sealing our love with our families.
Making a family was also in our plans, I have PCOS, and needed to lose weight to be given treatment, I've lost 20 kilos (3 stone) so far and have just 6 kilos (13 pound) to go, but maybe it's not the best idea just yet to start having kids....... which is like a stab in my heart.
So this is a life boost call, so we can snuggle in to our home, get married, and start making babies without fear!
We try and do things on our own, without asking for help, but sometimes. ... It's not a bad thing to ask politely.
