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 who is 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

Its Pickle!


And here it is.... my first grandchild.....I am speechless....almost. As ever a rather unexpected pregnancy for all concerned but none the less welcome. We may be struggling but with support from our extended family this child will have all it needs.

Went to Surrey for a couple of days. Saw some beautiful sights and collected daughters partner from the army barracks. Then we saw a traffic jam - it was a flood, very precarious but strangely fascinating!

Tuesday hmmm what next...

Just been to my first carers open day and it was very interesting, took John with me and yay it was wheelchair accessible. Got lots of information I needed including the fact that I can train to be a Reiki healer and go to Qi gong classes at Manchester Buddist centre. So what to do with the rest of the day??
