Thrifting our way (temporarily in Bulgaria) to a better life

The apple not falling far from the tree

Tiddler of course is the apple, and Digger the tree. Today has meant Tiddler has been able to wield a large spade around, get her hands dirty, and generally spuddle about outside.

She’s also had the opportunity to boss a few people around, but I had better not include that in the list of Digger’s inherited personality traits as he might get a bit grumpy reading this over my shoulder.

After all this outdoorsy-ness and crafting meant a delicious bring-and-share lunch was much appreciated, and Tiddler brought her miniature garden home to sit proudly on her ‘Easter table’ created in the hope on enticing the Easter bunny down to gift her some chocolate on Sunday.  The cost for a morning of activities, social interaction with all ages, fresh air, creativity, exercise and fun: simply our contribution to lunch.

Call me thrifty, prudent, tight or even a miser, but squirreling money away is definitely my thing. The ins and outs of how saving money became a lifestyle, in order to work towards a specific lifestyle change. Follow me on that journey and learn to look at life in a different way.
