- I'm 57 years old, working full time, wife, mother and grand mother, wishing that I wasn't working full time! I love and enjoy our children and grandchildren, our dogs and cat, our garden and allotment. I love crafts - knitting, sewing, crocheting, patchwork and restoring old furniture. I love to go to country auctions and love thinking that I've got my self a bargain!

Well the sewing didn't get done, but all the niggly little tasks are done around the house ready for another week of work and commuting.
I was reading somewhere that a lot of veg's are not sold because they don't suit the supermarkets idea of a perfect size and form of veg.
Well today I have peeled and chopped one of my Dad's large parsnip's - it wasn't uniform in size and had mud on it but you know what, it smelt beautiful as it was being prepared and I know that it will taste brilliant when it's cooked and best of all it will feed 3 of us, as part of 2 dinners and it was free!!
(I always plate up Monday nights tea with Sundays - saves time when I get in as well as gas and electric)
I also read today that food prices have risen by a minimum of 7% over the last year - who are they kidding - I would have said closer to double that amount.
Oh well roll on the spring and we can start growing the seeds ready for the allotment - lets hope it's a better year, weather wise, than last year - The log burner's lit I'm off to do some knitting and toast my toes!
Have a good week
