Scotland has it and up-north, but no snow down here……I know I am selfish wanting some – just for a couple of days?
Normal service is slowing resuming here at the Gigibird household. The Christmas decorations have been stowed away.
I have just made a HUGE Shepherd’s Pie, or to be technically correct a cottage pie (beef) I am struggling to think up a pudding for his nibs, but something will come to me once I have studied my store cupboard. I would just like to say before you all die of jealousy thinking I have a larder/store cupboard I don’t although I dream the dream – I have a corner cupboards which are a nightmare…..before I die I WILL have a walk in larder with a window with mesh covering it and shelves covered in check sticky backed plastic….well maybe not STP but something similar but tasteful.
Several of you have mentioned looking at your accounts….we are rather old fashioned here – my husband deals with our finances; all I know is he earns it and I spend it:) But, and it is a big but I do want to make a few economies to our household expenditure and probably the only place I have more or less complete control is in the kitchen.
My collection of old cookery and household management books are a wonderful source of inspiration to frugal living - so over the next few months I will be sharing with you my adventures.
I feel I should say that although we all have different financial positions wasting money and resources isn’t good for anyone so I am going to see if I have some fun and save a bit of cash ….. I hope you will all enjoy sharing my experiment.
