Getting older is something that happens to everyone, and brings all sorts of challenges and worries. I have my plans (more or less) for our near future, but what about looking further ahead?
I think when you have children, and even more so if you are on your own, there is more worry about what could happen in the future, to you and your children.
Over the years, I have come across different investment sites, but found them complicated, difficult to understand, using mostly jargon and words I hadn’t heard of!
You may be lucky enough to have some money to invest, or be looking to start a pension, to hopefully secure your future.
I have found a great website, Nutmeg, which offers investments for everyone, explains everything really simply, has a brilliant pension calculator as well as lots of information about what investment means, how it works, and much more.
Nutmeg explains everything – risks and all, and is straightforward and easy to understand.
I don’t understand how pensions ‘work’. I haven’t got one set up, but it is on my mind as I get older. Nutmeg’s calculator is a really easy way to help you work out how much you need, depending on how much you want when you retire – and what age you want to retire. Take a look at Nutmeg’s website, it is well worth a look to start – or continue – planning your future.
Anyway, back to looking to the near future, the most important things for us to do together are –
To plan Pickles 3rd birthday in the Autumn 😀
To have fun!
To explore and discover as much as possible.
To get Pickle ready for school in the New Year.
My big brother and sisters have lots of important exams in the near future, and my sisters will hopefully learn to drive.
Life is always busy here – there is always so much going on!
What is coming up for you?
