Bad Blogger!

It's been a ridiculous 2 months since my last blog post - and I can't believe how time has flown!  In my defence, I haven't been lying around eating chocolate and drinking wine (oh, how I wish) but I have been working hard on my business blog ( and have won lots of new clients (yah!).  I'm also doing an Online Business course AND I've joined a mumpreneur business programme (Become a Mumpreneur) so 2011 will be the year that I get entrepreneurial - while being ever thrifty, of course!

It's a new decade personally as well as calendar wise too (I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago) so, apparently, this will be the year that life begins!

My next thrifty project is my vegetable plot.  After a winter spent covered in snow, the garden has finally started to emerge and it looks very sorry for itself to say the least.  Not sure whether it needs a full medical or the kiss of life and a defibrillator.

I wandered around the garden centre on Sunday and now my head is buzzing with ideas for planting, landscaping and growing veg.  Knowing myself as I do, I think I need to calm down and focus on one thing.  So, here I sit, cup of tea in one hand and seed catalogue in the other - let the vegetable plot planning commence!
