Thrifty Lesley - 1 person, 1 day, £1

or How To Feed Yourself For £1 A Day

A new start, a shortened walk, a pub lunch and stubby onions

I'm sorry I haven't been around much during February, life has got in the way, as it has a habit of doing. I am cutting back on activities as Mike loves to go for a 5 mile walk, then lunch in the pub. I really like that too, but I need to create free days to do it in!...

Bugs, diets (again!) bargain mangoes and books

It's still germ central here. I had a hacking cough, a week off, then a head cold. Now Mike has a cold. I'm hoping it isn't different to the one I had, or I might get that one. On the other hand, I was at my daughters on Sunday and during a vigorous tickling session,...
