My friends used to call me ‘The Packet Mix Queen’, my life is so different now…..
I am a ‘stay at home mum’ with a wonderful husband and two lovely daughters aged 18 and 16. We live on an ordinary street, in a 1930’s semi-detached house in Leicester, UK.
When I first started to write my blog in 2012 I had four allotments and grew most of my own fruit and vegetables, however due to circumstances and a new reactive RSPCA dog called Judy I had to give up my allotments in January 2015. I am now converting my small back garden into a vegetable patch with the intention of growing as much as possible in it.
I make my own bread and cook from scratch whenever possible. I make jam, pickles, chutneys, apple juice, etc. and I clean the old fashioned way using vinegar, lemon juice and bi-carb.
I learnt my frugal, thrifty ways through necessity and the desire to make sure my family do not feel deprived in anyway.
I try to make sure WE LIVE WELL FOR LESS and would love to share with you how I do this.
There are lots of posts on my blog about my old allotment and now I have lots of posts written about growing fruit and vegetables in a small garden, so hopefully there is something for everyone to read.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
