When we moved last year, I had planned to document the sustainable updates done to the new house. I must have dropped those plans off at the local op shop, along with all the clothes Cheap Geek and I had outgrown. And life, like the blog, feels like it’s come to a stop.
It hasn’t of course. Mum and Dad altered and installed some heavy-duty ex-hotel curtains to replace the threadbare sets inherited from the previous owner. Instead of splurging on new furniture, we splurged on energy and water efficient white goods. A local business made and installed some external awnings for our north-facing windows. I’ve turned the side garden beds along the driveway into pockets of edible garden and planted fruit trees such as ballerina apples, pomegranate, nectareze, and a nagami cumquat. And we’ve rented 2 pekins to try before we buy into the keeping chooks lifestyle.
Cheap Geek and I are also in the red, having spent too much money on the house/the move. We have not yet adjusted to the higher mortgage repayments; this has got to change.
And so, mustbethrifty begins again (hopefully)…
