Happy Christmas!

Wishing all my readers a very Happy Christmas! 

You may have been wondering why I've not been writing my blog lately. Well I've been thinking about its future and come to a decision...

It's time to say goodbye.

I used to enjoy writing but I've changed so much over the years and my life is completely different to when I began. I am still a thrifty person but writing about it doesn't interest me anymore. I have so many new interests and I want to write about those. I have tried to evolve my blog with this in mind but it's not right.

There are other personal reasons too.

I am going to continue writing, but I need to write freely and be myself. If any of you are still interested in reading then please contact me and I will share my new blog with you. It won't be for everyone and I do spend money! 

I've been on a new journey and challenging myself to find a better way of life. It's a slow process, making changes for the better, but I'm happier. 

I would like to thank each and every one of you who has read, commented and shown me kindness here. I don't plan to delete it at the moment and will leave it as a reference for recipes. Most of my page views are of recipes. 

Thank you for reading!

Mandy xx


  1. I think the end of the year makes us all take stock and want to make changes or fresh starts. I've really enjoyed your blog Mandy, and would be happy to be considered as a reader if you do start a new one. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2017.

  2. I've enjoyed your blog, Mandy and was checking earlier in the week to see if I'd missed a post. Thanks for all you have written and best wishes for the future.

  4. I have enjoyed your blog too, tho I don't comment much. I no longer blog myself and am considering taking my posts down due to their sensitivity. My life has changed too, with lots of challenges along the way and more to come in the New Year. I would like to follow you on your new blog, please. Best wishes xx

  11. Happy new year Mandy and family. Your life has definitely changed dramatically with the arrival of your lovely grandchildren and I am not surprised you lost interest in blogging. I would love to follow your new blog if you do carry on but wish you all the best anyway, for the future.
