Hello Dear Reader,
It’s a usual weekend in Thrift Cottage, the washing is done and hung around the house drying. I’ve cooked, bathed dogs and had a clean……and a think.
The dishwasher, nine years old and repaired twice has died and gone to be recycled. We’ve decided as there’s just the two of us, to not replace it. I might keep my eyes open for a second hand under counter freezer so if I see bargains then they can be stashed away. I’ll think on it. For now, I’ll have the luxury of having somewhere indoors to put a bin. Get me!
Things like this make me happy. An unfranked stamp that I can use again. Little things eh?
Snaffled a bargain from Morrisons of a gammon knuckle. Cook in a pan of water for about an hour, strip the meat from the bone and use like ham.
Forty one days left of my fifty days of frugal, where I’m being as thrifty as possible to keep as much as my income in the bank and spend next to nothing if I have my way! We’ll be back in France in forty one days and we’ll be there for four weeks. We’ve more renovation plans to save for. We’d better get on with it.
Love Froogs xxxxx
