Living the simple life

I am Goth by nature, a carer by choice and a crafter by habit. living the Old Style way, spending less and making what I can myself. I follow Money Saving Expert and NYK forum avidly and am working to be debt free.


I shop wisely as every penny counts, my stock cupboard is my solution to any problem.


My home is full of craft stuff and I love making things for my grandson Michael and grand- daughter Bethany who are the reason I get up everyday. My kids are the best in the world and I thank them for being there for me and John

Oh what a day....

Decided today was the day to start my blog. I think it may take some time to get the hang of it but hey life's a learning curve. It's Manchester, its Saturday and yes it's raining. Had a busy day at work but the bonus is on Saturdays lots of my friends call in to say 'Hi' I havent been out to check on the vegetable garden yet, so think I will sneak out with a torch and see if I can get a peek at the hedgehog family cleaning up the slug population. The guinea pigs and rabbit need their supper too before I can disappear to bed. Tomorrow is my favourite Sunday of the month- Goth meet-up group gathers to drink coke and put the world to rights. Our latest addiction is bags of sweets which I have to buy on the way to the pub. Will discover how to post pics as soon as poss and show you GinnyKnits world. Hope mines half as good as some of the great blogs I have checked out on here
