This is following on from an idea I saw on another blog.
You have a folder which contains all the important phone numbers and account information. It can also contain your master grocery list, which contains all the items you would normally buy on a monthly basis.
This folder can be as complex as you like or as simple as you like.
I'm going to have a simple one which will have a sheet with all the names, account numbers and payment dates of all our monthly bills.
Then I will have a sheet with the annual bills
And finally people like the coalman and chimney sweep who are ongoing bills but we still need to contact them.
I find I never put all these numbers in my address book and then have to rumage around to find the phone number and or account number when it is required.
We have had more snow, it started yesterday lunchtime and continued into the night.
The boys and their friends had a great time building snowmen and having snowball fights.
But by the time it was bedtime the snow had turned to rain and so this morning it is just a slushy mess on the ground which will get everything wet.
My main problem with weather like this is getting my laundry dry as I do not own a tumble dryer.
I have an indoor airer and put some on there to dry in the warmth of the house it is then finished off over the radiators as it just need airing; the excess wet clothing last night got draped over some plastic chairs and left in the room in front of the coal fire when we went to bed, lovely and dry this morning.
Dave is having a few days off next week as it is half term and the boys are off school and we are hoping we can get some jobs done in the garden weather permitting; we want to get the greenhouse put together so we can grow salad stuff this year.
I'm a 45 year old SAHM,although I do now work parttime as a dinner lady; partner to Dave for over 20 years who is the love of my life. Mother to 2 wonderful boys Thomas and David.We live in the UK in a small village (pub, village school and church - no shops) approx 15 miles from nearest town.
I enjoy cooking, card making and reading, and trying to do my bit for the environment and organic living.
