I still can't decide which blog is best, simplesuffolksmallholder on wordpress or frugalinsuffolk on blogger. The wordpress site is simpler to post onto.
If anyone can find it, please have a look and tell me which site you prefer. Thanks.

counter, just 50p worth- bet the girl thought I was odd- but I needed it to top home

bargains my big shop came to much more than it would have done a year
