We spent yesterday taking down the Christmas decorations, helped by Suky the Pug, cleaning up the living room, and then we went on to finish packing up the books. We dug up one of the Apple Trees and put it into a very large pot ready for the move, we're taking the heavy work steadily and slowly as Lovely Hubby has a bad back again. The plant pot and trays etc in the polytunnel were all wiped down and neatly boxed up. It's looking very bare in there, but there are still spring onions, celery and radishes growing away.
It's hard work all this packing away.....a nap was needed half way through for some of us.
The tree was snipped down branch by branch and put on the fire last night, the house smelt gorgeous with the fresh aroma of pine, better than any artifical room freshener.
Now the shelves are starting to look bare.....
... and the stacks of boxes are starting to get tall.
First thing this morning we had to take Suky to the vet for her second vaccination, on the way back we stopped at Warborough Village Stores for some milk and some Caster and Icing sugar, it's Lovely Hubby's birthday on Monday and it's traditional for the birthday person to take in cakes for everyone. Now this used to involve a trip to the supermarket and the purchasing of many boxes of Mr Kipling delicacies, but this year we're making four dozen Butterfly Cakes on Sunday ready for him to take in on Monday morning, nice home baking, thrifty, yummy and NOT involving a trip to the supermarket.
So although today is not a No Spend day it is a Low Spend Day
Today we have gale force winds, so we are confining our work to inside the house, after finishing this post I'm off upstairs to help LH take apart the large wardrobe in the spareroom that used to hold all my crafting goodies,. it's the only way we'll be able to get it out of the house!
