Watching the pennies is always the plan
Took drinks and snacks to Addenbrookes hospital each week for the clinic appointment.
Started some cross stitch from the stash, will be used for little Christmas gifts
Sorted through part of the craft stash and put some in box ready for car boot sale in the summer.
Ran cold water into jug while waiting for hot to appear and used for flushing loos all through month.
Got washing almost dry outside and finished on the clothes horse by the fire all through month.
Filled the oven when baking cake and rusks and mincemeat slices.
Filled the oven one day when doing Tomato and Goats cheese tart for dinner by roasting potatoes and drying breadcrumbs ( from dry crusts)
Filled the oven when making cakes and quiche
Used our own frozen peppers, green beans, courgettes and mangetout peas from freezer.
Used leeks from the garden
Got seed potatoes from Potato day, more variety and cheaper than shops
Picked up free shopping bag from Potato day to cover the cost of entry.
Picked up twigs from field to use for kindling
Sorted through books again and sent off a small box full to Ziffit worth £13
Printed out a price comparison voucher from Asda worth £1.94
Biggest save, after having the water meter fitted last year..........our water bill for 6 months was £64.52p. Mrs F ( who we bought the house from) was paying £37 a month based on Council Tax! A good saving me thinks.....and we are clean and have clean clothes too!
As it's such a rare occurrence it always needs recording. We woke yesterday to a covering but blue skies.
The bench with more footprints
Then I took the bin bag down to the end of the lane to await collection and took a couple more photos
Looking back up our lane and then down the road. Our next door but one neighbours have both gone out to work and taking their children to school . Not much traffic along the road. Everywhere was quiet.
Jolly cold and very beautiful..........nice for a change.......but not for too long I hope.
Thanks for lots of comments yesterday and hello to 3 new followers who have clicked the button over the last few days.
And edited in this morning to say - the weathermen got it right, we've had more snow overnight and as I type this at 7.30am it's still snowing.....very heavily. That's made about 4 or 5 inches, the most we've had in Suffolk for many, many years. Roads are closed in Cambridgeshire so a trip to Addenbrookes this week looks problematical! Maybe more snow photos tomorrow.
