Every year my little garden produces more and more food as I become more organised and accepting of what will not grow in the ground. This year I lost a big bed full of shallots to critters - they waited till they were nice and big then decimated them.
This years biggest success is tomatoes, I have them everywhere - in the greenhouse, vertical pods and random pots. I have had a handful a day and there are many more to come before I pack up for the winter.
Very proud of my heirloom tomatoes as I was running out of seed having lost every plant for the last 2 years.
All in all a productive time which has lifted my spirits no end and saved me a fortune in the gym!
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

Hubby has just given up helping run the cricket league due to horrendous amount of work along with timewasting e mails asking stupid questions. All he was doing was sleeping and working on the laptop. We had a spare room full of trophys that he had built from parts thus saving the league £600 and during on of our discussions regarding his decision I stated I was always runner up - cricket came first. So on my birthday he presented me with a trophy which says 'no longer a runner up now a winner' - dont know who was more choked up him or me.
I had a lovely day, lunch with Mum, trip to Hobbycraft - which Mum loved. Then we went to see Jenni and Michael. She presented me with a certificate to say I am now Lady Jayne Egan! and a huge bar of chocolate.
Couldnt have had a better day.
