I read Leo’s poston Zen Habits last week and knew instantly what I had to do.

I’ve been on a simplifying journey since 2005 and in that time I’ve had three children leave the nest, re-married, renovated a home, left my soul destroying job, paid off a considerable amount of debt (consumer & mortgage) and de-cluttered more items than I care to think about!

I’ve also been trying to run two blogs.

And it’s time to simplify this. I’ve taken the sad decision to cease posting over here at Move to Portugal. It’s not an easy decision to make, but I make it knowing that a lot of you are so brilliant that you follow my ramblings on my other site (and hope you’ll continue to do so :) )

I don’t really know how I can ever say a big enough thank-you to you all for the comments, emails, link love and continued support over the years – you’ve all kept me going on this fun roller coaster journey, and for that I’m very grateful.

Blog Love {November 2013}

It’s been nearly a year since my last link round up – which is remiss of me as I read a lot of articles worth sharing – and so I’m bringing back a regular monthly link round up.

Economies of Kale has the best menu plans!

Michelle ask’s What is The American Dream?

New York, you are glorious – I agree!

Eva talks about The Cost of Living in London

Well Heeled recaps her 6 Days in London – getting to know London better is on my list for 2014

Moneystepper is getting ready for 2014 nice and early!

Okay, I’m off to get the house ready for visitors, have a great weekend!

To save the articles that I like, I’m now using the ‘liked posts’ facility in Bloglovin’ – it’s taken me a while to get used to using another reader after Google reader disappeared, but I’m getting there (after a few months of being very unorganized with my blog reading!)

How do you read blogs? Do you use an RSS service, or do you have them bookmarked on your desktop?
