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

Rainy Saturday

I have a weekend off as Michael decided to change thins around and stayed last night instead of tonight. John dropped me at the chemist - which was shut!!- so I walked to the shops while he drove Jenni and the kids to the shops to meet her friend for coffee.

10 minutes later my phone rang - 'the clutch is playing up on the car - AA duly dispatched a very nice man and I walked back to Jennis in the pouring rain. Luckily I only had a little bit of shopping as I only got as far as the Asian supermarket.

Half an hour later the nice AA man followed us home and we booked the car in for Monday, its nothing major...phew

I am now spending my weekend off wrapped in a cosy blanket and practising 'Hygge'. Baked potatoes and chicken in the oven which will warm the house and dry my coat when it comes out of the washer.

Picked up this big bag of Biriyani spices for £1.99. They need crushing in the pestle but will lasta long time. When you think a little bottle of spices at the supermarket are anywhere from £1 to £3 this was a bargain and I use a lot of spices to stretch food.
