I have to admit, we’re quite ‘traditional’ when it comes to male /female roles here at Chez Green.
Mr Green chops and gathers wood, I prepare feasts in the kitchen.
Mind you, having said that he does put out the laundry, clean the toilet, wash up, clean the cooker and change the bed. I got to hand it to him; I pretty much live in luxury.

Cherries are one of his favourite fruits, but he seldom buys them because he can’t be bothered to sort out the stones! (Never mind, I don’t much like sorting out a dirty toilet, so I guess we’re quits).
Take a look at his video to see what else went into his culinary delight and watch his darling face; he’s like a man who has tasted something heavenly…
Our thanks go to Abel and Cole for providing us with a rich delight of organic fruits and vegetables throughout heart month. Yummy!

That’s how I’m feeling at the moment with decluttering.
