Yesterday I decided that there was hope for the future when we supported young people who are dear to us to live frugal and self sufficient lives.
The first pic is of EGD and her boyfriend (EGDB!) loading a wardrobe they had just bought second hand, along with 2 bedside tables and a chest of drawers. They will soon be moving into their first home and have been sourcing some very good deals to furnish and equip it. So many of their contemporaries want new and matching and perfect and "ideal homes" immediately and paid for by credit card. This young couple have saved and paid cash for everything. They have happily accepted stuff that family and friends have offered, even if it doesn't match perfectly. "It'll do to start us off won't it"?
Gdson has taken patterns from the old dilapidated hive and, with his dad, is merrily making new parts. He has made extras and reckons that he will sell some to pay for his expenditure. Nice one!
I'm a bit busy at the mo. getting the garden planted and seeded and also preparing for our Civic Society's AGM tomorrow night. As the secretary much falls to me. So it's agendas and reports and visitors and refreshments to sort. Off to the printer...
Bye for now, thanks for reading
Welcome Francesca !
