Food Waste Friday, Oops!

I donned my rubber gloves yesterday evening and entered the murky underworld that is my fridge, which for the last 2-3 days has been emitting an odour reminiscent of a great dane with a nasty case of gastroenteritis.

Here is the culprit.

The problem seems to be wrapping it in tin foil. I cannot see when the cabbage started to deteriorate. Lesson learnt I guess.
Not a good couple of weeks on the food waste front.

This weekend is The Queens jubilee. 60 years since Elizabeth Windsor ascended the throne in the UK.

For those not based in the UK. Well, the country has gone wild for it. You cannot walk anywhere without being bombarded with red, white and blue.  It is nice in these difficult financial times to find something to be happy about. I am proud to be British, part of a multicultural society and am proud to be Queen Elizabeth’s subject. She has given her life to us the British people. A proper working mother in the times before that term was popularised.

My little corner of the country is celebrating all over this long bank holiday weekend. There are street parties, lunches, fairs, fireworks, choirs and dances set up. Actually a company we share are office with all came in today dressed in red white and blue.

So thank you Your Majesty. God Save The Queen!

Frugally yours


  1. I am not British; however, I admire and respect Queen Elizabeth. She is a LADY in every sense of the word. Her genuine classy demeanor is; without a doubt, an asset to her country.

  2. We have been getting quite a bit of publicity across the pond about the Diamond Jubilee. I'd like to hear more about the celebration.

  3. From far far away in Texas, congratulations to your queen, and hope you all have a wonderful celebration. I have always loved your royal family.


I really love reading all comments. So please tell me what you think. Abigail
