WHERE TO BEGIN ?This is my first attempt at blogging, so please be gentle with me !
So ......... I'm a woman of a 'certain age', 3 children all fled the nest long ago.
I find myself living in a modern housing estate after downsizing from a farmhouse in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. This has presented many problems but I'm slowly coming to terms with it. I can appreciate all the conveniences around me i.e. regular bus service , close proximity to shops and supermarkets (which means being able to 'bag' all the bargains) and wonder of wonders - streetlights !!
However, my heart is in the country and one day I plan to return to reclaim it, I don't know how I'll do it, but I will - somehow.
Things I love doing include, growing my own fruit and veg albeit in a much reduced space now, stretching money from here to infinity and beyond (I'm quite good at this), walking, supermarket foraging, vegetarian cooking, reading and craft work and of course my beloved cats.
Here are four of my six cats relaxing on my bed, if I ask them nicely they will allow me to get in too !
I hope to share some of my favourite vegetarian recipes with you, and my latest craft creations, I love making useful items out of recycled materials. Some will be offered for sale, but that is for the future.
I also love all things vintage and retro and have been an avid collector in the past. I love to discover hidden treasures at boot sales and flea markets etc., I'll be posting my 'finds' on here, I hope you will be interested.
