On the 5th Day after Christmas...........
These Double Choc Mochas are a treat now because I only usually buy the cheap Asda own label ones. It's certainly a case of you get what you pay for with packets of frothy coffee sachets. I'm trying to cut down and get back to normal coffees and even tea which I've not chosen for a while. The expense was getting out of hand.
Yesterday I tootled off to the main Post Office to get my ID stuff certified and stamped. I didn't need any food shopping, still plenty here to eat, just half a dozen eggs from the roadside stall on the way home.
Just after I got home a fig tree in a pot was delivered to take with me to my new home. I brought one here in a pot and we planted in against the brick wall of the patio and this year, just 3 summers later, there were lots of lovely fresh figs to enjoy. So hopefully the same again. It's a good thing it wasn't a bare rooted plant as the email saying it was on the way arrived the day before Christmas Eve, so it's been sat around somewhere for a week before I let it out into the light but it looks fine, still damp in the pot and well protected in proper packaging.
I usually do a round up of the months finances and frugal savings on the last day of the month but in December the post on the 31st is always photos of the year and anyway December has been expensive with trees cut down, car insurance, deposit to solicitor for the house selling bit and Christmas so there's no point looking for frugal bits!
There was some Clearing out done
