Scrap or Save

I have been a little frazzled recently, and in an attempt to get some ‘down time’ away from the screen was planning on doing a bit of crochet again. I say “a bit”, because as it stands I have never actually completed a project. In the cot next to my bed (which is used to… read more →

Still Boycotting Nestlé

As my post on my decision to boycott Nestlé is doing the rounds on Facebook again (and I mentioned it on twitter this week) I thought I’d write an update on where I am with it.

I’ve been a bit out of sorts this week. It’s why I’ve not blogged and why I’ve still not sorted this month’s meal plan (and this is grating my nerves because I’ve been having the “what shall we have for tea” conversation with myself every evening; I’m lost without my meal plan).
