Hi there!

I’m slowly working towards some simplicity within the home, but hey! It’s a lot of hard work!

I love having a go at growing my own veges and always use herbs fresh from my garden. I try to plant from seed whenever I can and have learnt to save and share my own seed for the following year. I make Award Winning preserves and pickles; and my husband brews Award Winning boutique beers as well. I love to stockpile and try to limit quick trips to the shops. I dabble in bread making and enjoy making my own stocks too.

I enjoy feeding my family good hearty meals, nothing like those tiny restaurant stacks you have to look for on the plate. My husband maintains our vehicles and machinery and we both enjoy fabricating on a small scale mostly relying on metal & timber recyclers for any materials needed.

While I don’t always have time to reply to comments, I love reading them. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you learn something new because I love sharing what I learn, and I'm always looking for another new skill myself.

And the winner is........

Yesterday I won a prize for the most useful, or thoughtful post for the month of May on the Down to Earth Forum.....for my Citrus Cleaner...I can imagine everyone who read it, having a jar of peels soaking somewhere on their bench....but its so good...and you already have the ingredients...so why not? 

Here is my prize from Rhonda at Down to Earth....Rhonda wrote about the competition here on her blog. I can't wait to receive it in the mail....Thanks Rhonda and Hanno for choosing my post.
