Introducing Tiddler (A Baby Bio)

Leave a comment


Age: 2 and a bit
Description: glossy haired, chubby cheeked,rag-rug rat.
Skinflint credentials: finding bits of cereal previously dropped on the carpet for an extra snack, not being bothered about brands and fashion (although showing a random preference for a pair of Spiderman socks that are a few sizes too big), when asked how many of something she wants then ‘two’ is always her answer even when I could have given her more.
Most likely to be found: dressed up as a cat, bouncing on the now very squished Rosie the Bear, making a picnic with the toy food.
Least likely to be found: ordering a frappe whilst holding onto her Gucci bag.
Languages: English, Bulgarian, Dinosaur.
Aspirations: To get up on to the worktop.
Skills for off grid survival: good at helping Mama peg out the washing, own plastic spade and bucket, ability to snooze on demand, willingness to wear wellie boots at all times if Mama would just let me get into bed with them onIMG_1613 copy.jpg

Call me thrifty, prudent, tight or even a miser, but squirreling money away is definitely my thing. The ins and outs of how saving money became a lifestyle, in order to work towards a specific lifestyle change. Follow me on that journey and learn to look at life in a different way.
