Now that I'm back at work after the summer break, I'm ending up at the end of the day with the shakes, I'm trying to keep on top of the garden harvest & I cook from scratch, I don't cook every night as I try to cook a few meals on a Sunday when the oven is on to make my life easier during the week.
I also want to continue seeing my grandchildren & with my crafts, sewing, quilting, crochet etc. I could give these up but then there is bugger all joy in doing nothing but work & sleep.
We are throwing every spare penny at the mortgage but it is literally pennies so it is going to be a long slow haul.
For a while, after I was ill I had the shopping delivered, that has now stopped, I fill the car up with petrol once a fortnight & if I need anything from Tesco's I get it then.
Once a month I'm going to Aldi, I only spend around £30, I still spend most of my food budget in the local butchers/greengrocers.
