This and that...

Hi everyone,

Not much to share with you at the moment as I am still so busy with my decluttering. 

Very little baking has been done but there have been birthday cakes...

I've also been cooking the same as usual but not really photographing it! 

Homemade takeaway! This is my chicken tikka marinade. 

The main thing I have been doing is decluttering and recycling where possible. If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I am a hoarder! I struggle to part with stuff because I may need it one day. I have been looking at old clothes as fabric rather than piles of clothes I need to get rid of. If the fabric is something I can use to make something new then it has been taken apart and stored ready for future projects. 

A huge bag of clothes to recycle.

Cut up and folded...even the buttons are saved for my button tin. 

The fabric that is unsuitable or stained has been cut up to make rags...most of these have been used already to clean my window frames. 

I'm trying so hard not to be wasteful! 

I'm going to start really attacking my grocery bill over the next few weeks and I will be sharing my tips here soon. We still spend way too much and I need to change that! 

It's good to be back

A little bit of cooking and knitting...

I've been busy so not much time for my blog lately. Here's a few photos though...

Beef stew and dumplings in the slow cooker. 


Stocking up on wool. I'm knitting Daisy a few cardies! 

Be back as soon as I can xxx
