101 indulgences, mostly of the "ish" variety

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

23. Christmas Day. It's in the middle of the olive harvest so great to have a day off, and we have a completely home-produced day, from the decorations & crackers to the wine, everything comes from our garden or is homemade. It's such a sense of achievement.

24. Breakfast straight from a tree/plant. I love scrumping a peapod or a fig, or something else and eating it straight from the plant. It's especially good first thing in the morning, just as the day is warming up.

Going to the local Flea Market / Boot Sale and coming home with a car load of 'treasures' that are in my opinion:

a) Valuable.
b) Just what I've been searching for.
c) Useful.
d) Potentially useful.
e) Collectable (by somebody).
f) Attractive (to me).
g) Couldn't leave it behind.

But to the untrained eye of 'She who must be obeyed' is simply :director: "another load of tutt ready to clutter up the shed coz you're not bringing THAT in the house".

A cheap day out for me though. AND I've sold a load of stuff in the local auction house and made a good profit. :pottytrain1:
