or How To Feed Yourself For £1 A Day

Ancient magazines and a magazine hack

Goodness, where did all those days go since I last posted! Well, some of those have been feeling ill. Again! I had a hacking cough that started on the 18th December when I went up to Northampton to see family at Christmas. That lasted a good two weeks. Then, after a...

I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more

Had a lovely day today. We wanted to go for a walk yesterday, but it was drizzling all day and we are both fair weather walkers. It was much nicer today, so off we went. We're really enjoying getting out and walking, even if it isn't proper walking, you know, big...

A main course soup – mulligatawny, 46p a big bowl

I bagged some lovely organic beef mince on yellow sticker last week and stashed them in the freezer for when I was ready to use them. They worked out, even on yellow sticker, at just a bit more than ordinary 10% fat beef mince, that's the organic part I suppose. Today...

An opportunity for a free £25

Happy Christmas to one and all

Had a lovely day at my eldest daughter's today. We had a traditional turkey lunch, delicious! Nothing quite like it. There were 8 of us there, including a Bolivian EFL student staying long term, including over the Christmas period. I would have been quite overwhelmed...

Well, I’ve FINALLY finished it!

My daughter got married in June 2015, and as part of her wedding gift, I thought it would be nice to make her a quilt with a purple theme, like the wedding theme. I found some dark purple fabric leftover from making a skirt and one of her Dads shirts, and went hunting...

Bugs and books

I've been bugged Yearggh, I've been bugged. On Monday we drove the 150 miles to my sisters house in Hackleton where many of the family were gathering. Mum, who also lives there, treated us all to a lovely lunch out at a local restaurant. It was a noisy party in a...
