Hello. My name is Gill and I live in the Amber Valley in Glorious Derbyshire.
Each evening I have been reading blogs about living a frugal and self sufficient life, eager to add to my knowledge and keep me motivated too! I'm a blogging virgin, but am eager to join in, so please bear with me!
A little bit about me
We have lived on our two acre smallholding for 31 years now and as each day dawns I am as excited about living here as on my very first day. We grow vegetables and fruit, keep bees, chickens and rabbits. We used to keep goats and sheep, but now just have a (very) elderly goat and rear orphan lambs. I love cooking, sewing and recycling and making something out of nothing.
