Bought myself a longer length lightweight jacket, after putting it off for 3 years. Found one on sale at £25 reduced from £60. Now I can ditch my short old-lady navy fleece! It won't be chucked but put away to use for working outside ready for when my current working-outside jacket falls apart.
Reading free books from library
Took flask and packed lunch or flask and a snack every time we went out so we weren't tempted to buy anything
Col made tree protection for the new trees from things that were here already.
Found toys for Grandchildren at car-boot sales.
Cut up pallets to make wood for kindling also picked up lots of twigs
Free heat using wood, so boiler still only on for hot water
Col took two doors off and planed them down so they closed properly.
Baked cakes and bread
Sorted through books again and sent a box full to Ziffit = £22
Picked all pears and put into freezer
Eating own apples all month
Lettuce from greenhouse and leeks and beetroot from the garden, Also beetroot from Col's brother's garden. Own peppers and mange-tout from the freezer.
Card-making from stash
Un-blocked drains ourselves.
£3 cheap veg seeds from car-boot sale
Couple of small Christmas presents from car boot sales
Sold 3 things on Ebay which sounds fine except that two of them were things we shouldn't have bought in the first place!
Had to go to the dentist due to a chipped filling. Went locally as a new patient instead of driving to Ipswich and he told me two other fillings that I'd had done in Ipswich hadn't been smoothed down, and one had a ledge that was catching food and impossible to floss correctly. Had to go private as even the dentists I went to in Ipswich have stopped doing NHS. Driving 3 miles instead of 16 miles makes sense to me.
Had to pay for trees to be cut down (but it's provided fuel for winter 2019/20)
Had to buy Col more PJs ready for when he is in Addenbrookes
Colin had to buy a new battery and charger cable for his laptop.
*****Thought I'd use the November photo for a change of header for the month and I forgot to say that our neighbours girls didn't come round on Halloween so I can eat the Freddos all myself! and thank you to everyone for comments on yesterdays post.
Found this Online HERE.......A Freddo will be 38p by 2030, but I'll either be long gone by then
or have no teeth to eat with! Luckily they were 6 for £1 at Tescos
