Ahhhh the silence and some free cycle!!

Well after the boring changing of the bank accounts I picked up a freecycled small three drawer chest of drawers and hit Lidl! Only spent £25 but need to pick up yoghurt's and cat food, children's toothpaste and some fruit not a great deal of fruit apples maybe and whatever is cheap! - should get away with only spending £30 this week  Ahhhh bread flour - sold out at Lidl - Over a pound a bag at other stores so plumbed for the 99p stuff - only 1kg rather than the 1.5 bags but no choice. Will keep monitoring!!!! Roo is at the beach - I sent her off on her own for some fun am sure she Will be fine -very sensible three year old  - not really away with friends - mine not hers so I have enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee and some uninterrupted blog reading.  Have  admin for work work to do later so will be busy and bored senseless. I do hope I get some sort of other job/direction soon  this current post is sucking my soul away!!!!!!

The freecycle item was much like the ret of my furniture - nothing interesting all rather bland- all second hand hand and given to me/ free cycled. Its every where!! I have alot of that cheap mock pine effect stuff. None of it has cost me a bean however so I am not complaining. It has no character, personality - it is all bland and very plain but gives me somewhere to put the books, photos. I don't really have Nick knacks anymore they were deemed non essential during one of the my house moves and as such boot sold, gave to charity. I would love a dresser however to collect and display my own particular brand of crap!!!

One day maybe when I am resettled again.... shame I will say tarrah to the kitchen - excellent space and lots of room for a dresser.......... ho hum soon I hope


  1. Could you revamp the furniture by giving it a coat of paint? x

  2. There are some brilliant ideas for revamping similar things to yours and on obtaining and doing up cheap dressers on the moneysavingexpert forum -

    Good luck. xxx

  3. I agree with the other two readers above, if you 'shabby chic' the furniture it would look great, and no feelings of guilt because you haven't paid a fortune for it in the first place!

  4. I would love a dresser too, somewhere to store and display all my random gatherings.

    See if you can find some half-used tins of paint and give the furniture a spruce up. Something colourful might lift your spirits.

  5. Yes I have a decorating plan!!! I aim to add some colour to the magnolia that engulfs my house!!!

    This is really to help with selling/renting.

    Garden soon... will have to see what happens next week and beyond regarding renting the house out............ who knows eh???

    Have a pine cupboard in Roo's room. not sure what colours to used on it - am thinking pink type aging may post pics of the horrors and get ideas!!!!

    Cheers Eeek
