And we all have to pull together! This includes shopping at Aldi and Lidl which isn't difficult when the prices are so low and Aldi do a nice French red! I'm in it for the long haul, which is not easy when you have the attention span of a gnat and hands that money seem to repel. However I have made one very sensible decision, not to have the kitchen renovation attempted until after Christmas. Any decisions before the festivities tend to be repented for many years to come. I should know because this time round, despite having spent considerable sums before, we will require electrics, plumbing and plastering (most likely flooring too). Don't expect a big reveal anytime soon, unless my lottery numbers come up. Compost crumble and windfall apple pies have also been on the menu, I love the seasonal change in the fruit offerings at this time of year. With a strict spending regime comes little pleasures such as potting up our rosemary plants in Poundland compost and a good library book, not too challenging but most enjoyable all the same. It's at times like these that you realise what a brain washed consumer you have become and how hard this habit is to break. I have therefore become even more addicted to Pinterest, I love the term 'Compound Pinterest' - all the money you save by pinning and not buying or not having the time to shop because you are pinning.
Sort of sums me up right now!
Have a wonderful week xxx
