Buttons, buttons and more buttons!

I don’t know about you, but when you try to make use of everything you tend to get stuff dumped on you kindly given! I’ve just been given a big tin of buttons and true to form, I got all excited and was very thankful for the bounty (I genuinely was!).


So instead of pushing them to the back of a cupboard (I’m afraid to say that this often sometimes happens, much to the annoyance of my other half – ‘what? more junk?!!’) I got stuck straight in and………….. organised them into jars!


I’m determined to actually use some on a project, so I’ll let you know how I get on later in the week! (shame on me and big scowls from my other half if I don’t!)

My 1st ever Blog post!!!!!!!

4 years ago my life was turned upside down with the arrival of my gorgeous son.   This huge change in lifestyle opened up, in more ways than I expected, a whole new world.  Amongst other things, I discovered social networking.  Since then I’ve sat at my laptop every day, placing online orders (whoops!), finding old school friends on Facebook, saving a fortune with online comparison websites and following many blogs.  My next learning curve is to create my own blog! (I’m a complete blog novice).  On this blog I hope to chronicle my adventures as a novice blogger, tight thrifty mum, gardener and home bird.

I’m looking forward to learning lots, having some fun and just seeing where this little venture takes me!
