just spent a lovely few months learning to make jam; chutneys etc; just begun to sell them here in FRance;
Saturday; disaster; cleaning and cut through my right thumb severing the nerves; was operated on but am in plaster for at least 2 weeks so all jam making stopped; deeply frustrating
Still am going to try and get hubby organised into preparing the chicken coop, so there is some excitement ahead!
That is rotten luck, Shelley, and the short term financial forecast seems a bit bleak too.
I hope your home is not under threat. I dread to think what might happen to us if similar bad luck happened to me while Fiona is still recovering. Working for a large international corporation, as I do, means that a bean counter in Manila could take me off the payroll with a single keystroke. It makes one feel very vulnerable.
Good luck, and we (all of us on this forum) are always here to provide moral support.
Looking on the bright side, it might mean that you work out ways of cost cutting that you can share with us!
Never knowingly underfed
already on the cost cutting front here
we moved to france 2yrs ago when the exchange rate pounds to euros was 1 pound to 1.46 euros; my husband was and still is paid in pounds. On arrival we got what seemed like an achievable mortgage and settled down.
2 years on the exchange rate is nearly 1:1 and the achievable mortgage is significantly less so with a 30% drop in income!!
however we are soooo much happier here and will never move back so despite all issues life is GOOD!
