Ear defenders.....


I already had some ear defenders and didn't realise it until I started looking for something in a box and discovered my old 1970's Stereo headphones! They work wonderfully well without any music piped through them, as ear defenders! Glad they didn't go in a 'de-cluttering' session! So now I can pop them on when using my mini processor or the bar/stick blender! Mind you, the fairly long lead has to be thrown over my shoulder and tucked into my waistband as, it can get in the way!

Ear defenders required!


i have a super little food processer but will have to get some ear defenders before I use it again! I have vertigo at the moment and loud noises seem to make it worse!

Fruits and 'labour' of love


Hellooo! The apples,plums and blackberries I picked, along with crab apples,rosehips,rowanberries, hawthorn berries,elderberries,sloes,damsons have been cooked and put to drip in a jelly bag and bowl. 10 pints and the juice of one and a half lemons are sitting on the hob, waiting for the making of my hedgerow jelly. This hopefully, will make enough to keep me going through to Sping in jelly and some for family and friends. I have quite a bit of various mint plants in the garden and some apples left so, I might make some apple-mint jelly too. I have not had a good year in the garden or otherwise. There have been some highlights, like my Nieces' wedding in July, the car passing it's M.O.T. I now have 2 cats. I can't remember if I told you about the 2 abandoned cats but, 1 of them, a huge black neutered male has decided he wants to live here despite the 'evil eye' from Lucy, the gorgeous tabby cat in my background header of this blog. The 2nd cat is a small black neutered female and has gone to live with a neighbour over the back fence, a cat lover fortunately! I've called my cat,'Binks' after the black cat in the film, 'Hocus Pocus'. He's very nervous of loud noises or quick movements (not maily from me lol!). I shall have to keep him in when it get to 'firework season' around here, which can be any day, not just bonfire night, very annoying as, some of them are incredibly noisy. I will try and post a pic or 2 of the jellies and the cats.

Boring, moaning post!


Well, after such a long while since the last posting, you'd expect something interesting to read wouldn't you? Sorry to disappoint you but, nothing really to tell. Except that I'm getting fed up of juggling the finances and not being organised enough to craft, sell it and make money. but, I have been making savings on things like groceries/pet food etc. Thank goodness for the 'yellow stickers'! Ilona from 'Life after Money' would love that! Right, off to pick some fruit at a friends' place for free and do some cupboard store grocery shopping. Maybe the next post might be more encouraging and happier?
