Love the cake Ellie! Stuckinoki I'm sorry you and hubs aren't in agreement at the moment. It's hard to budget sometimes! Where we are in the south of England it's more expensive than the North, so we still only rent and of course it always goes up every so often. We are both in work and I will get a good matnerity pay package but it will obviously be less than my usual pay. So money will be a bit tighter for us too. I think if you put your mind to it you can really find ways of saving money.
