A brisk Sunday walk and a mulled wine apple crumble

Darkness and Light January and February are such dark and gloomy months. I like to get outside whenever I can to get some daylight on my face. Can't say sunshine as there probably wont be any! Yesterday, Mike had cabin fever and was pacing the house, it was dark,...

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,...

Why have I got a rotten credit score?

Have the big fat January credit card bills from Christmas plopped onto your doormat?  Painful aren't they. I used to spend all summer paying off credit cards from the Christmas spending. And those interest rates, yowzers, ouch, ouch and double ouch. I am in the...

Why I don’t go to the sales

The post Christmas sales have been going a while now, since before Christmas in fact. I am quite wary of sales for several reasons. Are they genuine reductions? I think we all have to have our wits well and truly about us if we are to venture out to the sales. What do...

First day of the new year

Happy New Year to you and yours. Did you go out last night to ring in the new year? We didn't, we very rarely do. We have had enough socialising by now, had enough of eating a lot and are feeling generally partied out. We watched a film on Freeview and by the time we...
