My name is Libi.  When I grow up I want to be Miss Marple she’s ace.  or perhaps Mary Berry she’s pretty fab too.   I like wild swimming, drinking tea, dancing, sleeping, cycling my hulk of a bike and cuddling up on my sofa with my cat Rasputin and husboybandfriend Chris.

This is a tale of trying to make our new house a lovely place to live without falling into the trap of adding to the story of stuff.   I’m addicted to buying things but aware that things don’t make us happy.  In fact they often make the world a much worse place for everyone else.

 This blog is about the second hand, the upcycled, the learning to live without and the enjoyment of things that don’t include “stuff”.

  1. Hey 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my site and I LOVED your comment about the jacket potatoes. I’m going to give it a go with one and see how it tastes reheated. What I DO like is sliced jacket potato fried the next day; I’ve not eaten that for ages so perhaps that is a solution. Mind you, I should be eating new potatoes now, right?!
    Anyway, I’m in love with those tiffin tins – oh my, they’re amazing and I’m getting hints that you’re in the UK, like me?? I always get ridiculously excited if I find someone this side of the pond -say you are!?

    • Hey Mrs Green,

      I am defo in the UK, Just based in London. I grew up in Suffolk and I think that when I was growing up some of my friends lived very close to you. I’ve loved reading your blog for the past year and feel a bit star struck to have you comment. hee hee

      Good luck with the tatties – I’ve never tried it and it could be horrid but it’s got to be worth a try. My darling boy is a Shetlander so a massive fan of potatoes but I confess I sometimes find them a bit worthy unless slathered in all the trimmings. New potatoes in particular are a bit of an effort but they sound like a brilliant potato salad to me 😉 teamed with some home grown salad leaves that can’t be so bad.
