The bed rest worked and I am back on my feet but taking it slowly as it gets sore if I do too much. Thanks to people for their good wishes. Not sure if it was the break from housework but we have definitely saved on the electric! My husband has found some new buttons on the SMART meter and set the budget for a month which has dropped from 8% over budget to 7%.. We have 5 days left to see if we can keep to the £30 for the month.
As part of my sitting around "resting " I have been watching BBC 1's "money for nothing" programme where found objects are transformed by artisans designers. Some things are great, others I think are a waste of time! Certainly got some ideas for future projects
Weather has been fantastic in the afternoons and the light in the trees has an extraordinary clarity. Runner beans and sweetcorn are nearly finished so it was a nice change to harvest some leeks and cabbage!
