Thrifty and content
It really is all in the state of mind.
I don't have a grand bucket list, or wishes beyond my wee life.
A trip out in the car, walking the dog somewhere we haven't been before (or for a while), cooking a different meal, reading a new book - all these are a treat.
I was born into a large family in the 70's when money was sparse and spent sensibly. We all learned to repair our clothes or use old clothing to make something else. We learned to eat the food put in front of us, to play with the toys that we had.
These ingrained behaviours are trendy nowadays. (I waited until I was in my 40s to be fashionable!)
I love meal listing, planning our food shopping to save as much as possible, chatting to my bloke (Man Wonderful) about anything and everything, playing the piano or sitting quietly reading.
Plans coming up include popping to the library and taking new dog for his first few walks.
What about you?
