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

This is the reason I am so busy! Making Christmas extra special this year for little man! Just off to find the red wool for his snowmans hat then find the Santa who needs a beard and we have it partly sorted.
Chutney is simmering away - bargain onions so I had to find a use for them. Few mustard seeds, olive oil and black pepper and we are on our way. Need a few provisions next for chilli jam for his daddy and thats his hamper nearly done.
Making a hamper for Carrie too with all sorts of lush things in it and a few practical things for the car too.
Am waiting for jenni's bracelet bits to arrive then I can make that up, but want a nice box for it, so am hoping to get to Hobbycraft, need some polystyrene wreath bases for a fab crochet wreath I saw .
One throw already made for sister-in-law but have one to do for Jen too and have not started that yet. Need a quick trip to a big Asda for some nice bits and bobs I saw in the catologue and theres another few pressies sorted.
