Spring has finally arrived here, although we did have some windy days at the beginning. I've dusted off the blog for Spring cleaning to start posting again. A lot has happened of late, although not much has changed.
I haven't been keeping track of the no spend challenge as there were a couple of weeks when I fell off the no spend wagon. I was mostly good and didn't spend too much but there was a little bit of 'comfort spending'.
With Spring around I decided I would try and finish my crazy quilt I've been working on for ages and ages, there's still plenty of embroidery to be done on it. I think it reflects the state of my life at the moment.
I've been down to the kitchen garden 'lottie as much as I can be. I have harvest a few things from the plot, baby spinach leaves, and a row of baby beets. There's still cabbages and tomatoes growing and some carrots and radishes but I don't think they will do too well as the soil isn't that great so I might get some wonky looking carrots.
The main new thing I've been doing is following the wartime rations from world war 2 during the 1940's. The meals have been very frugal, like this Oslo meal meant for lunch.
In other news, sadly, I had to give up Hilda and Lillian the chickens. Lillian turned out to be a rooster! Oh well, you live and learn, they both went to good homes. Lillian is now called Lee, which is hysterically funny as Lillian ( my grandmother and dad's mum) son is called Lee; he is dad's older brother. So funny. Hopefully one day I will be able to get more chickens. This time I know what to look out for to make sure I get Hens!
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
