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

Its almost February!

I bought 2 of these little pots with Ivy and cyclamen in for £1 each. I wanted ivy for Michaels fairy garden and one of the pots will be re-planted with bulbs for Mums birthday. Just need to find space to get my seeds and bulbs started as all the window ledges are full of overwintering geraniums.

Picked up a pck of peat pots and trays to sit them on in £land the other day and have compost and vermiculite warming in the kitchen.
Knitted a first size cardigan for stocking Gin and Pickle at Easter - lovely simple pattern, just my kinfd of thing!

These two look comfy but may need  longer couch as Pickle is growing taller every week.
