I'm back

I am really bad at this!! I don't mean to go for long periods of time without posing it just seems to happen.
I think about posting all the time and the next thing I know weeks, months, years  have past.
Well what have I been doing since I was last here.
We have travelled a lot.


New York 


Cape Verde


That was all last year

We have travelled this year and met some lovely people. That's why I love travelling you get to meet lovely interesting people. We are very lucky to travel so much.

My daughter and I are going to London for a few days next week. We were lucky enough to get tickets to

When I get back I have to concentrate on this. 

We have had a massive silent leak in our house so we will have to clip our wings a little until it is all fixed.

We have decided to tank the cellar and turn it into a laundry room/ come store room. Knock the dividing wall down between the kitchen and the dining room to make a big kitchen. And put an orangery on the back yo use as a dining room. We can't decide weather to have our windows replaced or have them repaired
I am drooling over other peoples kitchens on pinterest

Exciting times I am going to try and blog about it so I have an on line diary.

Grand Bottle Opening

Well I opened my bottle

And it will turn into this 

My youngest daughter and I are hoping to go to New York for a few days at the beginning of March. Its pretty amazing how all that loose change mounts up and can turn into  a little break. It does help that she works for BA so we are getting it a bit cheaper.

Saving Money

Iv'e not been about as iv'e  been full of a cold.

I am doing this this year to help with next Christmas. I did it last year but didn't open it I put a £1.00 a day in a bottle and all the change out of my purse. We are thinking of having a little break in March so I will open it then to pay for that.

There are lots to choose from around the internet and other blogs.

If you do it good luck and happy saving.
