This is all about my quest to have as good a time as possible, spending as little as possible.
Now I’m retired, this is my job.
Life isn’t all about money. It’s about good friends and family, having a laugh, great food, a beautiful environment, interesting ideas, tantric sex and expressing myself through the medium of dance… OK, perhaps not so much of the last two. There will be lots of recipes, gardening tips and musings about finding myself in my ‘third age’.
Update. Damn! My third age might be shorter than I thought, as this summer (May 2012) I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. Well, I’m going to enjoy myself even so, and try to keep myself as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
My research shows that a ‘plant-based diet’ and plenty of exercise seem to be the only ‘alternative treatments’ that get a grudging nod from conventional medicine, so my aim is now to eat 10 portions of fruit and veg a day! So there’s a new, ’10-a-day’ tag in my ‘recipes’ as I evolve ways to get that amount of plant-based goodness down me!
