Hi from Brussels!

Post: # 221605Post nickiecc »

Hi, I'm Nickie, I'm British but currently live and work in Belgium. As you can imagine, this can make steps towards self-sufficiency daunting if it involves using languages I don't speak desperately well, but I've managed to take a few small steps so far. I'm experimenting with homemade cleaners, I'm learning how to bake bread, and I am slightly addicted to knitting and crochet, so I try to make things I need around the house like oven mitts and facecloths.

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Hello! I'm another Brit in Belgium who makes home cleaning products. I wonder if you've found a place to get quantities of bicarbonate of soda here? I have only found smallish packs in Delhaize...
