Being Lazy...

...I'm directing you over to my post on my other blog Two Great Weekends (that's the post, not the blog)
Why type the same thing out twice?!

I'mm not very good at blogging. And I think I'm terrible at being frugal - I'd planned great things (see the last few posts on this blog) but none have come to fruition! We're back spending dosh (we had some lovely meals out!) and spending what seems like far too much for two people at the supermarket! I follow  this blog of a young single mum, who is amazingly clever at being frugal. She sets herself the target of spending £150 on groceries for herself and her three children a month!!!! I can barely manage to spend less than that a week!

Still, I suppose I should keep trying. But I can't imagine folk are interested in my weekly menus, so I don't think I'll bother posting them - but do, please, tell me if you ARE interested! Suffice to say, we eat some lovely things, some ordinary things and some minor disasters! Today is chicken in a jar of Wagamama's slightly spicy sauce with veggies and noodles. And I'll probably make some mushroom soup to freeze as I got a barquette of 1 kg of mushrooms for 3€ there is a tiny, tiny bit of frugality here - though I'm not sure how much room there is in the freezer. We may have to eat something to fit stuff in!!!


  1. Hi Dormouse - thanks for calling in at my blog - well, actually writing a comment, if you have been following it as well.

    Its good to meet a shipmate too! :)

  2. Hello! You left a comment on my blog, asking what I do with the tags & altered items I create. Well, some do live in my house, some in my work office - and many are given as gifts. Tags can be used in place of traditional cards - or, put on the front of cardstock as the image/embellishment of a card.
    What's funny (to me, anyway) is the greeting cards I've made in classes are very difficult for me to give away! I don't know why - but if I've made a card or a tag or whatever in a class, I rarely give it away, but find a way to display it.
    Did you see the post I made with the large distressed frames I have in my art room, with the rows of tags & cards I've swapped with others? That's another way to display what you create and/or receive.
    And seeing your beautiful calligraphy on your other blog - maybe you & I should exchange a card or tag!

  3. Hello, thanks for reading! I adore food and would be more thanhappy to read more recipes on here - everyone's on a budget but sometimes we all need a treat, too!
