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

I made this very special blanket this week for Reubens Retreat a very special place for children. Reuben took on holiday in Devon and was found to have a brain tumour, he died a matter of days later, To help then get through the day his parents decided to fundraise and build the retreat in his memory.. My little donation is the blanket, the first of several I hope.  http://www.reubensretreat.org/
