Making Tax Digital with Xero

Are you a notepad and pen kind of person or are you someone that favours technology over the traditional? I must admit I fall somewhere in between the two. When it comes to planning or working through ideas I’m definitely a note pad or big piece of paper kind of girl. I love making notes, drawing up ideas, crossing things out and making arrows to connect thoughts. I think there’s something so creative in the…

September Little Loves

The back to school and back to routine month of September was met with great enthusiasm from me.. but I fear it’s ending with me dreaming of the lazy summer days! I think I’d forgotten just how busy our term time lives are. I honestly feel like I’ve not stopped all month! I’m not complaining though as most of what we do are things we’ve chosen to do or chosen to support our children in.…

An Autumn Survival Kit

September still holds that…

Amy is one of my Coffee Work Sleep Creative Community members and it’s…

Using Xero Accounting Software as a Small Creative Business

I’ll hold my hands up, and I’ll admit it, I’m not a numbers person. I very ashamedly fit the stereotype of a creative when it comes to my accounts. Whether it’s the simple things like keeping track of invoices, or saving my receipts for expenses to the bigger issues like working out profit and loss! It’s all been an uphill struggle for me and I’ve definitely had to learn on a trial and error basis.…

My August Little Loves

What a month, it’s hard to know where to begin! It’s been a juggle of work and spending time with my daughters, but I think we’ve done pretty well and certainly made a lot of memories. The glorious weather didn’t stick around for long into August, did it? No matter, we are pros at grey and rainy British summers now! We’ve taken day trips, had pajama days, been on a mini break to North Wales…
