I have not been online as much as I am looking after my newborn daughter, however I am still saving hard and investing. Obviously my income is down drastically as I am on maternity leave but this just means I have to make my money work harder.
Last week I was fortunate enough to reach Royal Mail dividend income. I recently sold lots of my Royal Mail shares so my dividend payment was much less than previous payments, however the dividend income was enough for me to invest in 1 more share. My total holding now is 43 which is rather pitiful but better than nothing.
I still have some National Grid shares and will be receiving a dividend payment on Wednesday 5th August, and some Legal and General shares which will pay me dividends in October. I will be reinvesting all these dividend payments back into these stocks in order to grow my holding.
