I've got a bit of a mental block at the moment where craft work is concerned, waiting for a flash of inspiration. It will come, I know it will. I'm surrounded by piles of stuff, plastics, cans, wool, fabric......just looking for a good idea. In the meantime I have made these key rings from the vinyl offcuts. They are very easy to do, but the downside is that I have broken a few sewing needles, they just snap in half. Daily spend - nothing
Hello, I am a 72 year old retired lorry driver. After trucking for 32 years I'd had enough, went part time when I was in my mid 50's and stopped altogether when I reached 60. Yippeeee, now I am free to do as I like. I live with three cats, I am very careful with my spending, only buying what I need. I have no qualms about buying second hand from car boot sales and charity shops, and getting free stuff from skip diving. Money saved is put towards holidays, a decent car, and days out. I love life, and it needn't cost a fortune to enjoy it.
1000 mile challenge 2020
We start our sixth year of the 1000 mile walking challenge on the 1st of January. Members of the International Walking Group will need to report in on the 1st of every month with their own mileage. If you feel that 1000 miles is too much for you, make up your own challenge. Any walking is better than no walking. The aim is to improve our health and fitness. Remember, you need to allocate time to do this, going for the odd ramble when you feel like it is not really enough. Walk fast, walk with a purpose.
Onward we go. Let's work hard to keep in good shape.
