Hello Dear Reader,
I love a Saturday where we get all the domestics done. Everything is clean and all the laundry is washed and dried. I don’t have a vacuum that’ll clean stairs or furniture so I’ve got an old fashioned stiff brush that I use. It’s a great workout too. By the time I’ve swept down two flights of stairs, the furniture and the curtains, my arms ache at the end of it.
I use an old paint brush to clean down the nooks and crannies like the decorative parts of the backs of doors and around electrical items. I also keep one in the cars to clean around the dashboard. I like cleaning with brushes, they last for ages.
It’s almost time to restock the woodshed and move my end of the garden log pile to the log pile by the house.
All the usual home cooking took place. Lunch today was butter bean dip, sweet potatoes, carrots, feta and salad.
I was sent the most lovely gift by Cat of her hair straighteners that she didn’t need any more. I can now tame my hair that looks a lot tidier when I straighten it.
It’s the end of my first no spend week and other than groceries and diesel for the car. We haven’t spent any money. We don’t spend a lot anyway so it’s not a big deal for us. We don’t normally eat out, or get a takeaway, or buy new clothes, or buy anything for our house so this is more of our normal. This month is just about being conscious of that.
