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

Thank goodness its a New Year



3 pictures from December, first is Michaels free kitchen about to be thrown in the bin till a friend rescued it and Hubby slowly renovated it. Our magical deer in the back garden  gifted by our neighbour - next year they will be part of a Christmas scene. Last but not least 15 blankets, 2 cushions and some lavender hearts I donated to the childrens hospital - I can stop making things so they may as well go somewhere they will be of use.

Last but not least little man seeking refuge from the Christmas shennagins - it was all too much for my auty boy. At least he actually joined in opening gifts this year and rather likes choclate advent calendars
