February has been an expensive month for the FU household, both in terms of money spent and the loss in value of our investments due to stock market drops.
Our first child of 6, FU#1, has been on his own path to FIRE for a while now, so I’ll do a quick update on his progress.
In my December ’19 update, I mentioned that we were aiming to FIRE in 5 years time in 2025.
I was asked in the comments about my FIRE number but due to my laziness I didn’t reply. I appreciate comments on the blog and need to make the effort to respond when I get them.
Anyway this post should answer any of those questions and show my plan and reasons to achieve FIRE in 5 years. Continue reading

Happy new year everyone, hope you had a good one.
New years eve didn’t exactly go to plan, with us having to rescue a drunk daughter from a house party, meaning we had to leave our neighbour’s party early and see in the new year trying to sober up an emotional 17 year old.

Christmas is looming fast and we had another busy month on both the work and home front.
The run-up to Christmas on the home front is always manic, as you might expect with six kids in the house.
I also had quite a bit of extra sorting out this month with our rental properties, on top of all my regular work. Continue reading
A short and sweet update this month, no time to do anything else.
This post lists the practical steps to take for a 16/17 year old aiming for FIRE in the UK.
Our 2nd child of 6 kids, FU#2, has just left school and has started working on an apprenticeship. She is 16 years old and will soon be turning 17.
We were so busy over the last couple of months, what with weekends away at the caravan during August and the kids going back to school in September, that I forgot to do an update last month.
So if you’re interested in what we’ve been up to carry on reading below.
Another month flies by in the FU household.
The kids’ social lives continue to dominate our time at the moment, especially Mrs FU’s, having to organise clothes, transport, and accommodation arrangements for the various activities the little Fus are partaking in. Continue reading
