Once again

Once again I'm attempting a blog. I stopped the others as for some reason I couldn't get fully into them, and found I was repeating myself. This time, I'm determined to stick at it :-)

There's a lot going on in my life at the moment. Children who had moved out, moving back in. Lovely to have them home again, but it means rooms having to be rearranged, and the prospect of having a craft/sewing room being further away from happening!!! Though in all honesty, I'd rather have the children to a craft sewing room :-)

I'm on a challenge (have been for ages but never seem to get anywhere with it!!) to try and live as resourcefully as possible. I think to say frugal is not the right word, because I go off the frugal path. Resourceful is the better word. I want to be able to make the most of the money that comes into the house. I'd like to learn to upcycle, reuse where I can. Make something out of nothing as such. Bake more. Make more. To be productive. Not wasteful. To appreciate what I have, and put what I have to best of what it can be :-) I don't want to be stingy, but I don't want to become a slave to the materialism that seems to want to control life and waste money or time or both.  To put it in a nut shell, I simply want to enjoy life simply. Or at least. As simple as I can :-)
