Family Life, Going Green & Paying Off the Mortgage…
In one way or another that covers just about everything that’s going on with us right now.
Over the last few months of 2006 and the start of 2007, we’ve seen our lives change dramatically with the birth of our son, Ben. Its been challenging, but the good times certainly outweigh the bad.
With the new (and still quite scary) responsibilities of parenthood came the decision that its about time we tried to recycle more, waste less and generally be more eco-friendly. Until now, its been something that we’ve, at best, been luke-warm at.
Neither of us are particularly money-oriented, but we realise that the simple, hassle-free existence that we aspire to requires a certain amount of financial security. Paying off the mortgage would certainly go a long way to achieving that. No, we won’t be eating nettles any time soon.
We’re not suggesting that we’re experts in any of these fields (not by a long shot) but maybe we’ll post something that other folks might find helpful or useful. If we can do it, there’s no reason why anyone else couldn’t. In the same vein, we’d like to hear your own tips and suggestions – maybe you’ve thought of something that we haven’t. If so, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
What’s in a Name?
The domain “MadEejits.com” was registered back in 1999 for a project that never really got off the ground. Since then, we’ve been using the domain for our personal email accounts and, for some reason, people that know us think its quite appropriate. (Wondering what’s an eejit?). So, when we decided to set up a personal site, it seemed only fitting to revive Mad Eejits rather than register something new.
