I started my blog thinking early retirement was the goal but actually, 6 months on, I'm not sure that it is. I want security and freedom to live the life I want. I think that might mean being able to live off 50% of two incomes, so that either of us can take a break (or we can both take a sabbatical) if we wish.
Just last weekend, I discovered the freedom of not spending money for a weekend. This time last year, I would have dismissed the idea outright. It gave me a taste of what I want more of in my life
