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.

And the winner is......
And the winner is.........
Sherrie from Simple Living!
As to the other wonderful people who I have promised garlic seed to....
I cut the tops off on Friday all set to package....and found the tiny stem on each one was still sappy...so they have been drying all weekend and I will probably package them all up when I need a rest from gardening or housework at the end of the day....
Things are a bit crazy here at the moment...it's also our 13th Wedding Anniversary today...the builder is here starting work on the front veranda.....I need my pain medication adjusted better and am back to having monthly infusions in the hospital....oh and hubby has been offered a job finally and starts in a few weeks...just a 4 1/2 hour drive away this time and not 2000km..... Which is fantastic!
