Not spending was going well....

I portioned all our food stock down and organised it, cleaned all the cupboards. I even made my own oat and coconut milk. Saturday, Sunday and Monday were all spend free.

Until real life happened. My babies have both developed colds, resulting in a grumpy toddler and a very much attached new born. Then my husband threw his back out down the allotment. Poor sod can barely walk.
So today. We did something shady, we bough convenience food. I caved. It was pretty stupid because
A- I don't feel good about it ethically speaking
B- it didn't provide my family with a balanced meal
C- it didn't really satisfy that yearning of the soul on a bad day for a good meal.

I must remember: happiness is a state of mind.

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using Cloth Nappies for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro.
I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too!
Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies
You can grab little bloom nappies on amazon from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?

Starting our kitchen garden

Growing our own food has been an ambition of my husband and I. We both really value locally sourced produce,  and enjoy spending time outdoors.  In our first home together (a basement flat in the city centre) we planted anything and everything we could in planters on the windowsill.   I had green beans trailing up the bars of our windows. They bolted and twirled up the bars but never got enough light  to produce anything edible.

Then we moved into our first pub which had masses of outdoor space, unfortunately,  all car park and no dirt. We managed to sustain some hanging baskets with strawberries and a few herb planters, but that was about it. 
Now we are in our new home.  A lovely country pub in the new forest, whiich offers a private garden just for our little family.  We moved here when I was 8 months pregnants and ever since, I've been desperate to make the most of it. 
Since the new year we've been planning what to do with this neglected space.  I found this article from nu…

Sowing in January- kitchen garden and allotments

What can I grow this January? After the business of December, January
has hit me like a sledgehammer. I'm bored. I need a new project, and what I really want to do is get on top of my allotment and kitchen garden.
