Hi from the UK

Recommended Posts

As I put in the title, Hi from the UK :wave: And I guess I had better tell you a bit about myself, my name is Sue, but one of my friends calls me Lily as apparently there are far too many Sues of my age around ( I'm 51) and I'm not too fussed which name you choose, you can use both if you like, I have :)

 

I've been married for nearly thirty years, and we have three sons, and have always lived in the same big city in the East of England. I got to this forum in a rather roundabout way...and I must admit I didn't really know anything about prepping, but while I was reading I realised that I could learn an awful lot here.

 

Because of my youngest son's early poor health, I gave up working fifteen years ago, and we realised we could make it on one income. This meant me doing things I hadn't originally intended like cooking from scratch, and shopping in charity shops...and it turns out I can do all this stuff ( anyone can)...but this year as the UK like most other countries is in recession, I'm renting an allotment ( piece of land you rent from the local council) to grow vegetables on. I'm also learning to drive ( rather late in life) as we would like the option to move out of the city eventually and this area has incredibly bad public transport.

 

Our house is small, there are 5 of us living in 800 square feet, so I don't imagine I will be able to do vast amounts of storing things, but I will definitely appreciate help with growing stuff, and I also want to learn to sew ...and you can cheer me on with my driving lessons ( I so wish I had done this years ago, but better late than never!)

Welcome Lilysue, plenty of us have different circumstances we like to be better prepared for. There are all kinds of threads /posts on hideaway storage techniques and things like that. Plenty of bulk mix helpers too for family food and preps and recipes and such. Many many ideas. There are at least a few others from the UK who also strive to mostly live in smaller homes, too. Feel free to ask questions and glean anything that is useful to you. Happy to have you and Happy Christmas to you and your family.

Welcome Lilysue! I'm still "browsing" this site and finding soooo many things to learn and things I can share with others. We're all pretty much in the same "yoke" and willing to pull! LOL Don't give up on the browsing..it's great!
