And the dream is.............

On chatting  re when we win the lottery, the Biggles and I would do the following

Purchase a business - cafe on a good biker road with adjoining campsite and bunkbarn and also sell a few biking essentials ideally somewhere pretty. Promote said business in biker mags and website.

Have a garden turned over to produce and keep chickens.  If feasible a hut much like that of the Deer hut for the winter with a few more essentials in it. Doesn't matter where it is as logn as its a feasible bikers road this.

Live frugally.   We do quite a bit as it is. We are not going out people.  We do not value new sofas, clothes, flash holidays where one lazes by the pool. The bike is Biggles big extravagance - his passion.And mine??? I have yet to find it! I would love to quilt and dress make but no sewing machine.  And a bike of my own would be fantastic. Walking is also grand but weeny can't quite manage any really good hikes yet. One day however....

Ah well nice to dream ......

We have decided to leave going to the Deer hut till the autumn. Will still be lovely shame it is booked at the moment.

off to Sheffield in a fortnight for a few days as well.  Some free parks and stuff to take in for weeny girl with animals and sand pits.

Next time we are in London we have our eyes on Greenwich and other free stuff to do which won't be til the Olympic malarky is over.


And after a lovely ordinary weekend Monda! is ere again.

Sunday was lovely we managed to get to Brizlee Tower, the magic garden and the hermit cave on a wee walk through Hulne park - aka the Duke of Northumberlands personal playground for country pursuits that he graciously permits the serfdom to walk through.

We took a picnic- Weeny girl satisfied.  then home for major Sunday feed! Cheap Sundays dinner with only bacon as the meat course.

Biggles has a thing for white sauce all over Sunday dinner with a splash of gravy as well.  So was happy with the cauliflower, brocoli cheese thang with smoked bacon. Loads of veg as well as roast spuds and cheepie yorkshire puds. At 39p for 12 - and then divided into two meals I can't make them any cheaper really and my efforts are rather hit and miss.

Am feeling smug about the work attire after the Big shopping splurge on Saturday. Ha ha my work clobber costs me less than a Fiver ! Ok not including shoes but they are the same age as weeny girl so £10 per year is not a bad investment . Trousers - £1 Top 1.95, bag 1.95, bangle - FREE present.

Why on earth spend a small fortune on clothes for work???? Beats me.

We have leftovers for lunch with approved food naan bread and a smattering of fruit.
