Hi everyone thought I would start this blog to keep track of the bits & bobs I get up to each day. I am a stay at home mum with 3 children who are in their teens & twenties. I have had Chronic Lyme Disease for at least 14 years if not more. I am constantly trying to improve my condition. I am a great fan of moneysavingexpert.com and have discovered a few ways of upping my income without too much effort

B: flax muesli with 6 raisins added.
L:Spam & stir fried cabbage.  Peanuts. 1 square 81% chocolate
D:Prawn curry and vegetable bhaji.  Low carb microwave sponge.

Dinner today depends on what I find on offer at Lidl.

I have set myself the task of changing one single bed.  I intend to use remainder of day to rest as last two days have been fairly active for me.
