I’m feeling a bit left out in this ‘ere blogging malarkey so after several months shilly-shallying I’ve decided to take the plunge.

I’m retired and living in rural Lincolnshire, the county of my birth.  I love making things, all sorts of things.  I sew and do patchwork.  I love making jams and chutneys.  I make cards.  Most of all though, I like making a mess. I am very good at mess making with the result that I lose things including my camera, but nil desperandum, it will be found

I chose the name of the blog in honour of my trundle truck.  Most people would call it a mobility scooter but some call it a disability scooter.  Yuck.  Trundle truck sounds much better and a lot more fun.  I have some mobility issues and my trundle truck gives me freedom.  It also means I can terrorise other people.  


  1. Just found your blog, and I`m looking forward to more of your entries. I am also frugally challenged and would love to learn more from others that live that way, too.

    1. Why thank you! Yours is my first comment. I am definitely Frugally Challenged - I'd like to be frugal but somehow . . .
      Writing a blog is proving to be a steep learning curve but I like a challenge.

  2. It's about time! Frugally challenged you've been lurking on a few blogs :-) time to share your stores!
