Chilly....

A bit of frost this morning after an overnight low of -1C. Yet again, our day has dawned bright but cold, the 4th blue sky and sun combination on the trot! Looks though that Sunday will be a complete washout.

After a bit of due diligence on the food front, we have managed for now, to get our weekly food and toiletries shopping under the £35 mark, indeed some weeks are £30 or so. The only fresh homegrown vegetables we can dig up is leeks so not much to call on.

We have our last packet of dehydrated strawberry powder to use up, slightly out of date, so I might make some muffins with it. So far, DB has been stirring it into his porridge each morning and I into my milk fruit smoothie combo.

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. That's a brilliant amount to be able to get the shopping down to, is that for two of you?

    Dehydrated strawberry powder sounds delicious.

    1. Every blue sky day is a bonus isn’t it, in the depths of winter.

  5. That is a low bill...We had 28 degrees yesterday morning with a high around 43, cold but sunny and very chilly with some wind. Greetings from Florida.

    1. We are trying for an average spend of no more than £35 per week for us both, and eating healthly.
