Happy New Year!

2015 was not my best blogging year. These last few months I did type an awful lot of words - but on other things. Essays - the university studying sort where you have to read and think - and work stuff, mainly. So unless I wanted to spend all of my time sat at a computer (which I didn't), blogging sort of fell by the wayside.

But I do still enjoy writing, especially the sort that doesn't have to be academically referenced, and I do still try to live a little bit more sustainably, and I do try hard to keep things simple, even when they're really rather complicated with work and family and studying, and what not. And being a student again means I definitely have to be frugal. So all is not lost. And of course my favourite thing of all is to try and minimise food waste and to eat leftovers. Especially Christmas leftovers. And take bad photographs of said leftovers. 

Can you guess what they are?


The thing about blogging is that it does make you think about all that stuff more and keeps you accountable, and then there are all the others out there who are thinking about that stuff and blogging and commenting about it, and eating leftovers. It's heartwarming. 

So whilst I can't resolve to be a more frequent blogger in 2016, I can resolve to dip in and out still. And eat leftovers.

  5. Are the leftovers little tarts filled with cranberry sauce, a few pine nuts and a blob of cream?

    1. So nearly there Linda - it's camembert rather than cream. Didn't taste that nice to be honest - maybe because I guessed the quantities rather than following the recipe closely.

  6. Happy New Year to you all!!!

    As a fellow student in Wilts, I know what it is like.

    I am hoping 2016 is going to be a good frugal year...it needs to be.
