WELCOME to my BLOG
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.

Challenges #1 & 2 _Oven & Washing Machine
Challenge #1 - Cleaning your oven
Today I also wrote about cleaning my oven....while it's not 100% yet...I will keep working on it....But for today, I need things to do standing up...as the old hip will complain if I get down there in the oven again today....
So here is my next challenge, which I will tackle today......
Challenge #2 - Cleaning your washing machine
I took a photo of my washing machine yesterday....while I'm not proud of the state of it, I knew that you would appreciate my honesty in sharing a photo with you.....I have yet to clean this one, so there is no photo before and after yet...but there will be shortly....
For now....here is a photo of my yucky washing machine....I don't enjoy lifting that centre piece out, I just know it's going to be slimy................
As I used the machine last night for a soak....I better get that load finished first before tackling this challenge.....
If you would like to join in....leave a comment and a link on what your upto...What is your first challenge going to be? Is it the washing machine or the oven?
