Banana mashed or sliced on toast with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Yum…
A banana (and/or other fruit) yoghurt smoothie; although that might be a little difficult if it means waking other household members at that early hour with a noisy blender.. Then again….. 😡 :p
Back after a long break too but thankfully still on track with my veges and have finally started the orchard.
goodness, I hope things are getting better for you… things often go in cycles… don’t be hard on yourself. Kids are hard work; and I take my hat off to you doing shift work for some extra dollars.
is there something little you can do…[Read more]
Thought I’d pop by yesterday as I haven’t been around for ages only to find I couldn’t log in – or get the site up at all. Thought ALS had died and gone to heaven :rip:
Thank goodness you’re all here and all OK! :clap:
I only passed on your web address to a new friend yesterday too…
So, I’m off for a bit of a look around, catch up with some…[Read more]
Very cute darls! :clap: 🙂 :clap:
Hi armadillo! and Welcome!
I’m in the New England Area as well! We’ve only been here about 10 months and I am finding the climate extremes challenging also! (Although we only get frosts down to about -10 here! 😆 )
I made it to $100! Phew! :jawdrop: 😮
I used a couple of methods. Firstly I siphoned off $20 from each pay/inward monies and stashed it into a rarely used account (One I had set up a little while ago just for savings!)
To make up for this short fall I’ve started implementing some of the other suggestions made on this thread and elsewhere on…[Read more]
Great idea Sonya………… :clap:
I’ve had thoughts about it in the past and watching ‘The Seed Hunter’ (?) last week bought it to mind again. I don’t have that much experience growing veges etc yet so want to put most of my energy into getting my garden really established first!
I guess it wouldn’t be too difficult to save seed on a…[Read more]
We found the water container itself in the garden when we arrived! I have no idea what it’s original use was but it is a very heavy ceramic vessel about 40cm long x 25cm wide and perhaps 20-25cm deep.
I just tip the water out and scrub it out once in a while. I can top it up out of the tap on the mini water tank (an old keg DH has set up on a…[Read more]
I oil and then flour my tins and have never had a problem with the loaves sticking. They are just average quality not lovely heavy real bread tins! Maybe that would save you having to buy new tins? 🙂
I’d love to know too!! Weren’t they gorgeous?? :p Bright pink and orange are my absolute favourite colour combination!!!!!!!!!!! 😆 :p 😆
they split it into 3. 1/3 goes to spending, 1/3 to saving for special things and the other 1/3 goes into to their money tree not to be touched.
Well done wigwam! what a wonderful savings plan you have instilled in your girls! You must be so proud of them both! :clap: :clap: and well done for having your act together too! Being a single mum…[Read more]
It is easier to save and live frugally if we make it a conscious choice and flow with it; not fight it; if you think itâ€™s going to be hard; or impossible; then it probably will be. Think positively.
I read somewhere in a â€˜wealth knowledgeâ€™ type book that we should pay ourselves first. It really does make so much sense! (Not for luxuries.…[Read more]
OMG This challenge is just what I need!
I believe that most of us live up to our means and beyond! By most I mean that there is a very small minority who live debt free; or are paying their debt off more quickly than the requirement; giving up luxuries out of choice not necessity.
(This is regardless of income earned; some big earners save and…[Read more]
Raining here now too- near Tamworth! Yay…. glad I held off watering too! :clap:
Harvested: some Rosemary to put in homemade hamburgers tonight! 2 eggs from my gorgeous girls (one almost definitely looks like a double yolker!); a cauli, broccoli and some broad beans which I planted ages ago!
Great chooks RTB! :clap: Can’t quite bring myself…[Read more]
I’m a a bit like you and have a hard time thinning out the weedy ones! If I’ve got the room and they’re not too dweeby (my word!) I’ll plant them on too…. If they look severely dweeby :rip: then I’ll either chuck them on the compost or put them under the mulch to break down!
In my experience the 2nd raters mostly perform just as well as the…[Read more]
As with PO and CC a lot of people are simply not interested in becoming educated about something until it starts to affect them personally.
Regarding any future monetary crisis; I believe it would be a matter of people HAVING to learn if crunch time comes and they would surely be thankful for any budgeting or self sufficiency information that…[Read more]
Hopefully, it was something nice like seaweed tea. Ever the optimist
tee hee. Fingers crossed! 😆
Me again! :shy:
Great article bazman- impressed with those swales too!
The Peter Cundall article is actually on that site too! It makes for interesting reading also… (and I didn’t have to buy the magazine!) 😆
Sorry, don’t know how to make that a live link! 😐 I should learn! I know…[Read more]
Sandi, Did you mix it into compost or compost teas before adding to your garden beds?
Yes, bazman, I’ve added it to the compost pile and turned it through! It wasn’t a huge amount but I’ll add it to each batch of compost I make from now on…. Thanks. 🙂
Off to follow your other link now.
😆 😆 😆 debby-lee
I just need to bloody sit down and commit to finishing one things instead of starting a heap of bits and pieces and not finishing any!
This is officially known as ‘puddleducking’ at my place! Each UnFinished Object is a UFO and I have cupboards of them! I play tricks on myself and make myself finish a UFO before I…[Read more]
