Sunday musings

stamp 2

I’ve been experimenting with my pictures again. I made this one sepia and gave it a perforated edge like stamp. Artistic? I think it’s better than some art I see that looks like a pile of bricks or paint thrown at a canvas. Ordinary people with their feet on the ground would want a picture like this on their wall, rather than the work of some over-rated artist who pickles sheep in formaldehyde.

Whats it like to live in Wednesbury?

DSC_1858

What’s it like to live in Wednesbury? This is a question I’m asked quite a lot. People overseas think it’s great because they see photographs like the one above. That’s the canal on the west side of town from me running through an industrial estate. That bridge goes across to Moorcroft Wood. There was a teddy bear’s picnic for the kids in Moorcroft Wood this week. (more…)

Winter food

You don’t really need more food when it’s cold, but you need different foods to help you to keep warm. If money is short, what can you give your family to eat that’s frugal and will help keep out the cold? I have a few ideas…

Thrifty Thursday ideas

What does ‘price discrimination’ actually mean?

I just looked at chickens in Tesco, they are £4.00 each or 3 for £10. Why do you have to pay a 1/5 more if you only want one? Is this discrimination in favour of families or against single people?

More Thrifty December bargains

The super-six at Aldi this week are cucumber, broccoli (350g), onions (1kg), celery, courgettes (3) and tomatoes (6). They are all 49p again this week. I bought some celery and broccoli this week. The celery is good for adding to chicken stew this weather. Be careful of the broccoli, mine was a little wet. Remove the cling film and if it’s wet wrap kitchen towel around it to make it drier, it’ll last longer.
