Review of the Month - Looking back at April

Here is my regular look back at the ups and downs of the month on a simple Suffolk Smallholding.

  1. Our income was enough to cover the budget for May.
  2. Food spending just under budget
  3. £5 left in my purse for the Red Roberts Retro Radio fund ( now at £95)
  4. Lots of lovely cards and books for my birthday
  5. A lovely surprise in the post of card making stuff from a fellow blogger
  6. Our son and girlfriend are now living back in Suffolk ( although right at the other side of the county)
  7. The campsite was busy over Easter
  8. Poly tunnels are almost planted up
  9. The new flower garden looked very colourful all month
  10. A couple of small cheques have been saved into the ISAs
  11. Our Eldest daughter fixed a wedding date ( June 2015)
  12. Local Car boot sale season started and a lovely big mirror found  for £2
  13. 60 new hens laying well
  14. Main-crop potatoes are planted
  15. Front fence repaired
  16. Eating asparagus all month
  17. A good day out visiting friends
  18. Our missing Mabel cat is definitely still around and eating the food we put out for her.
On the not-so-good side of the equation
  1. Very little fresh veg available from the garden
  2. We both caught colds - first we've had for at least 3 years
That's about it  for April, I wonder what May will bring us.

Back Tomorrow
