Holy Moly where did October go?

Well life surely is zooming by over here. So I am trying to summarise what I have been up to.

1. Just finished a superb book called "The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett.. a historical story set in the UK which twisted all the time to sustain your interest. Its well worth reading and there is a sequel which I shall have to get to pop in my "be prepared for the NH winter" box.

2. New knitting project on the way.. a hat with 4 different colours in.......very tricky for me! Watch this space for a completed product photo or a huge tangle of coloured wools.....

3. I am regularly attending a powertone class with Gina who is a 50ish lady who looks like bendy Barbie and has a great attitude which kicks me into action.

4. That is about it besides the day to day working, taxiing the kids, basketball games, blah blah blah!

Oh yes & I am trying to work out where the hell all of our money is going these days!

Same pay checks coming in, everyone seems to be eating like troopers so the food situation is unreal. Surely $210.00 for groceries a week will feed 5 people???? Apparently not at the moment...I'm going to have to pad the meals out by adding pulses....then I will have to buy more toilet paper!!!!!

I guess we will have to start looking at cutting back a little...maybe sell a kid or two? Anyone any ideas?

There were five of us in the house when I was growing up and I could never figure out my mum's obsession for putting baked beans into the mince . . . NOW I know why she did it!

A hat with four cclours. My that's brave.
