Come join me in my quest to live a happier more frugal way of life, while enjoying the more traditional family values.

My Daughters Hens Party is today, I can,t believe it,s only 2 weeks until the big day. The bucks night is also happening tonight and I,m imagining that there will be a few sore heads tomorrow. I enjoyed the days activities but the night time ones are not for me I,ll leave them to the younger generation. And I,ll do the babysitting.

Tomorrow we are going to a friends place for food and drinks, they are Sri Lankan and cook the best curries and spicy dishes I,ve ever tasted, so no dieting for me.

I have had a big month financially with all of the final payments towards the Wedding being due, as well as 5 birthdays ( my Mum,s is today )all of the bills were paid this month as well, and I,ve been stocking up my pantry, so nothing saved and all of my snowflakes going towards making her big day even more special. As a surprise we have organised a Piper to play her out of the church, just to remind her of her Heritage.

Somehow my lack of savings is not bothering me at all, I am just so happy to be able to manage to do all I can, to make this a special day for everybody.


At last the rain has stopped and left behind it a legacy of flowering shrubs and beautiful green grass, I can,t imagine why I complained about it, I should have known that Mother nature would,nt let us down.


  1. You have so much to be thankful for - your family, upcoming nuptials, mother nature and no increase in debt to name just a few. Sounds like everything is falling into place and your well-laid plans are unfolding as they should. Wow - only two more weeks - it will fly by in a blur.
    I envy you with spring and summer on their way - flowering shrubs? green grass? All here is grey and brown:( Enjoy your time with the little ones and have a wonderful weekend!

  2. it's very exciting reading the countdown to the wedding, it sounds like its all coming together nicely.
    the piper for your mum is a lovely idea!

  3. I hope you all had a great time this weekend! It's all coming together nicely...and no more debt either :-)

  4. What a nice gift for your Mother.
    Hen's and Buck's party is a new term for me.
    We call them Stags and now Stag-ettes party's.
    I love spicy food and especially dishes with curry. Curries are such a blend of spices that some are really better than others by the way they are blended.
    Have a great dinner.
