Saving A Few Pennies

Well, it may not quite cover the cost of a new tank of heating oil but we shall not need to buy any apples and pears for a little while.



Which is a good thing as P has persuaded me to book us a little holiday in January .  Deposit paid today and fingers crossed for no disasters before then.

  1. We foraged apples and pears today - all legit, from a wood where it's allowed - so it's crumble tonight!

  2. We are going on holiday to the Algarve in a couple of weeks JayCee. 300 Euros for flights and 220 for an apartment no prepayment: Ryanair and Booking.com. All booked online . No travel agent and 2 Euros for a pint.

    1. They are. The apples taste wonderful but the pears need to ripen up.

  4. I wonder where your master is taking you. They say that Fleetwood can be lovely in January.

  6. Those apples look perfect. Not a great pear fan, but the thought of apple pie, crumble or Tarte Tatin makes my mouth water. No custard though, thank you!

    1. I much prefer apples to pears but P loves them . Hopefully they are ripening well now. Poached pears maybe.

    1. They certainly do. I now have a couple of large trays of apples wrapped in newspaper in my boiler room. Hope they last well.
