It's going to be a great weekend

FIONNULA and Frankie are two single 30-somethings determined to turn their lives around.

They also happen to be the stars of Weekend's new summer reading series.

Inside Weekend magazine, in tomorrow's NewsMail, writer, TV presenter and Rockhampton native Anna Daniels explains the inspiration behind her new fictional series Fionnula and Frankie's Christmas Countdown, which will be published exclusively in Weekend over the next 11 weeks.

Plus, read the story of a couple who have gone from budgeting to living in the lap of luxury by retiring overseas.

Stephen Wyatt and Colleen Ryan are now helping other couples do the same with their own book. It's a timely resource as experts call for an overhaul to the government's retirement and superannuation policies.

Our columnists Matt Sawtell and Simon Irwin also shed light on beer and how the beloved bubbly brew can add some serious flavour to your weekend cooking.

Pick up a copy of Saturday's NewsMail for this, plus much more inside Weekend magazine.
