This weeks 5 frugal things on a Friday

Hello Dear Reader,

Well, that was another week that has just flown by, is it just me, or is everyone feeling that life is going by way too quickly? My working week is full as a boot and as you know I try and be as productive in my home as I can. I make a list for myself, to get done, when I get home from work and get enormous satisfaction when I can tick a job off that list. It doesn't always go to plan and sometimes I am just too tired to get it all done, I then just postpone those jobs until the next day. My husbands Gran always said "The housework won't run away from you, it will still be there, waiting".

Thursdays list, the watering didn't get done, I was just too tired 

I will have to water today, everything is very dry 

I did a lot of baking/cooking this week and have been enjoying homemade crackers and hummus for my lunch. I made Sourdough bread, Sourdough Crumpets and I also had a go at flat breads, they all turned out great. I made a Toffee Apple and Pecan Cake on Wednesday night, half the cake was taken to work for our Monthly Morning Tea ( I promised my boys the other half)

So this is my 5 Frugal things for this Friday

1. Made nut and seed crackers and Pumpkin Hummus for lunches
