Education key to life

DIANNE HARRIS is a budget advisor for the Anglican Care Centre

Education is the most powerful weapon for changing the world.

Not necessarily school education, more than that, education in realizing that the influence that we have on our families habits i.e. spending, eating, hygiene etc start from when they are young.

Understanding that children take what they are given and ask for what they know they are likely to get e.g. if we teach our children from an early age how to save and to use their money wisely they will understand when mum or dad says “no, not this time”.
To see the benefits of looking ahead, which in turn, becomes a practical solution to the problem of how to best spend the money available.

Change is one of the hardest things in life to do and when it comes to the way that we spend our money it gets even harder.

Education and knowledge is the key to successful money management BUT nothing is going to work unless you actually WANT it to.

Sydney Harris said “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”


This is one of those go to recipes, a long time favourite, thanks Mum.

Well grease muffin tins and preheat oven to 200
Break 1 egg into a cup half fill with milk and then half with water Mix all ingredients together LIGHTLY - in other words don’t over mix Put mixture into the well greased muffin tins and spindle a bit of cheese on top.
Bake at 200 for 10 to 15 minutes.
