No Longer a Danger & Frugal Update

 At long last I have been able to access my blog!  Norton no longer thinks I'm dangerous and has released me back into the community without my even lifting a finger.  I had absolutely no idea what to do with it anyway!

Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my last post with commiserations about my predicament.  I wanted to reply to you all but it was much too fiddly to do it on my phone and now it seems a bit late. So.... just...thank you.... 😊

Life has been pretty dull over the last month anyway so you have been spared my boring posts! 

Frugal things for February:

  1. We've still been eating from the fridge & 2 freezers to keep costs low this month and will have managed to save around £30 from this month's food budget.  I've cleaned out the kitchen freezer drawers and put the remaining stuff back.  At least now I can see what we have left in there and most of the bits and pieces have been used up and nothing wasted 👍 We have had just one online delivery in February and that was mainly for the bulky stuff which we struggle to carry these days.  I don't think we need to shop again until March and, in addition, there is still lots of fish in the garage freezer along with tubs of apple, broad beans and cabbage from last year's allotment harvest. Oh...and a frozen turkey from Christmas 👀
  2.  I have been writing menu plans each week, which has helped enormously.
  3. On the odd occasions we have ventured out I have prepared sandwiches, drinks and a snack to take with us.
  4. I have managed to dry 2 loads of washing on the line outside; the first since about last October.
I really hope that we will be able to get out more soon as the weather picks up.  Life seems to be slipping by with nothing more than chores and cooking to look forward to.  I really need to walk more and it wouldn't kill G to come with me.  However, it's raining again now so a walk tonight is out of the question.....

Take care everyone. Stay safe x

It's OK.....
