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

Watch this space!

I am taking part in a vertical growing challenge on Frugaldoms wonderous forum   www.frugalforums.co.uk and this is my start. I used a canvas photo gifted by a friend - aimed to be hung but didnt like it much so re-cycled it. Hubby was laughing when I asked him to make me a framework, he just dug this out turned it round and Bobs your auntie. 

So far have a couple of strawberries in but a friend is sending me some alpine strawbs and am going to put some baby leeks in and spring onions too.


These are my secret weapon in growing courgettes and usually do very well in the tyres. have topped them up with homemade compost which has saved a lot of cash this month. Cant see the point in spending huge amounts on growing food as it kinda defeats the object. I have spent a grand total of £10 this year on the garden including using a £5 off voucher online for some interesting seeds.
