About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Blow the budget...

Sometimes you just have to blow the budget... its the little things that count... I didnt go buy a house or a car or even expensive wines or chocolates.. but I was dragged in a shop by the gorgeous smell of the fresh pineapples on his shelves... I got a huge one, really ripe and fragrant... for 2.45... if we dont make pigs of ourselves tonight, it'll do maybe two more evenings of sunshine... probably though... just tonight ... I just love sweet fresh pineapple... and the ones we get here seem to be sweeter than Ive ever tasted!!
