It's Time

Sunday, 23 May 2021

Hello Dear Reader,

I feel it is time for my little blog to come to an end, for a few reasons, namely time or lack there of it and not having too much to say anymore. When I first started blogging it was all about saving money while still living a lovely life and I really couldn't wait to share that with anyone who would read my blog, now days our budget isn't so tight and we have been able to relax a little, which is lovely. 

I'm not sad to say goodbye to the actual typing and creating a blog post, but I will be sad to say goodbye to my lovely readers and followers who have stuck with me even though some days the content of the blog post was maybe a bit boring or not what you wanted to read. 

I will leave the blog up for a while but will take it down at some point so maybe if you have a favourite recipe you could save it to your computer or a memory stick so you can refer to it at a later date. 

Thank you to anyone that took the time to leave a comment, it meant the world to me and kept me going in blog land and usually put a spring in my step and a smile on my face. I still post on Instagram as I find it very easy and quick so if you'd still like to keep in contact my Instagram page is called-stay_home_instead. 

Thank you, again Dear Readers,

💙Fi

  1. Dear Fiona, I am so sorry you are choosing to close your blog. I have always looked forward to reading your offerings. As a fellow aussie it has been great to read something with an aussie slant. I must apologise for being a bad reader in rarely commenting. It was not because I didn't enjoy your posts but because I can never think of anything interesting or witty to say. Anyway, i wish you good luck and many blessings for you and your family. I follow you on Instagram so will see you there! Cheers from Liz.

  3. I've loved reading your blog and your recipes are great. So jealous you have a fisherman husband and you have a freezer full of the catch. I do often refer to your recipes so it would be good if you left it up for a while. All the best. Kathy, Brisbane

  13. Fiona:I applaud your decision to end your blog.I will miss it but I get why you are ending it.
    I live in the US and enjoyed learning a bit about Aussie life. I liked your recipes, learning about the thermomix, pups, and cat. I especially like the "mushy peas" recipe as my hubby detests peas. Good cheer!
