Today I joined Twitter. I’m still to decide how I feel about it. After spending hours setting up an account and fluttering through the giant birdcage that is Twitter, I feel like I have achieved very little. I have wished Daniel Radcliffe a happy birthday in hopes of getting it to ‘trend’, gathered 3 followers and lost 1 already.

Not a very fruitful afternoon. And it’s sunny outside! Here in Scotland, sunny days are hard to come by, so I really should be making the most of it. At least I managed to get the washing hung out in the garden.

My money saving tip today was to talk my darling hubby out of going out to dinner. I’m sure we can find something good to make at home at just a fraction of the cost. I did my supermarket shop online today as well, so at least I’m practicing what I preach! It’s being delivered on Monday night. Also, we’re going fishing this evening (off the harbour), so if we catch anything, that’s free food!

Nobody has visited my blog today, I’m guessing it’s because it’s the weekend. So I thought I’d try a bit of reverse psychology and tell people NOT to read this post. Sorry if you thought it would be more interesting. A post like this is very much a result of a very sleepy me! Happy Saturday!

In other news… I had the best night last night, chilling with my bestest lady friends. Gossip and food fest are just the best Friday night activities…. This morning I tried Chocolate Sugar Puffs, they kinda just taste like Sugar Puffs but they turn the milk brown…. The chilli plant has been repotted and is settling into it’s new home nicely!… The big batch of soup from the allotment is nearly finished, fortunately father-in-law has kindly donated another turnip from his allotment to go into the next batch!

Last weekend I visited my cousin Jane and her husband Andy at their lovely home in South Devon. It’s a fantastic house, but it’s the garden that I envied the most! Almost an acre of land allows them to produce all kinds of fruit and vegetables, whilst a small orchard to the rear of the garden promises to tend to all their cider needs in the future!
Sadly my own garden is far less substantial and shared with about 15 other properties so my vegetable patch will have to wait. I have, however, arrived home with a chilli pepper plant. My husband LOVES chillies and spicy food; he adds chillies to his pizzas and hot sauce to scrambled eggs, and well, anything actually. So I’m planning on having a sustainable chilli source! I presume it may take a year or so before the crop will exceed a small jar of chillies, but I’m starting small. This plant only cost me £1.75 at the Eden Project in Cornwall so if it gives me ANY chillies, I’ll be happy.
Also, if you’ve visited my blog today, a very big HELLO to you! This is my first post, hope it’s been of interest. Visit again soon!
