Our Frugal Lifestyle

My photo
Passionate about eco-frugality. I used to party hard, clubbing my way from pay-packet to pay-packet. Never getting ahead, just getting by. Then came our much wanted baby with no savings in the bank - only an old car. Changes were made to our lifestyle and we didn't turn back. In the past 6yrs we purchased a flat, found employment, lived below our means, built an emergency fund, purchased a reliable car and saw the financial benefits of our frugal lifestyle. Our only debt is our mortgage. Our aim is to manage our cash flow wisely, pay off our home quickly and eventually work for pleasure, not necessity. Join us on our journey, share insights, tips and tricks to help us and others to get ahead while having a good time.

Spoilt Again

My gorgeous neighbour Lady Thai gave us a beautiful dish again.
Fried Rice and Spicy Beef and Pumpkin
It was so good. The Rambling Expat and I ate this slowly savouring each delicious morsel. It was too spicy for our Dolly.

And tonight Lady Thai gave me a Thai massage that went for over an hour in her peaceful home massage room. She wanted to practice some techniques so asked if she could practice on me. How could I say no? Someone in need and I was there to help...

Sorry no pics here, my Rubenesque body is for galleries only. lol. 

I'm very lucky indeed and appreciate all the lovely gifts that have come my way.

Did any gifts come your way this week? I'd love to know what you received.


  1. Wow how lucky are you to get a massage and a yummy feed? Spoilt rotten! i LOVE the photo of you in the bathroom - that made me laugh and the cushion you made is gorgeous, its so much nicer giving and receiving handmade. I try to do that as much as possible. Thanks for visiting my blog and have a fantastic week!

  2. Thank you for the comment, it's bloggers like you who inspire me to create out of fabric. Your talents are amazing.

    The photo is funny now.... The Rambling Expat didn't tell me he had entered it until he sent me the link back then. I was shocked but now enjoy it. We've had friends pose in front of it for a pic. That's always a hoot.


Thanks for commenting - I love getting feedback, sharing experiences and learning from you.
