We’re in Woman’s Own!



womans ownQuite an interesting week this week. Woman’s Own called wanting to write an article. The journalist wanted to do it there and then as she had to write it that day. Goodness knows what she would have done if I hadn’t been there. I had to put her off for a few hours as I simply couldn’t do it then. Later on we did an interview over the phone for 45 minutes or so.

Wednesday, they called to read the article through, and it is due to be in the issue published on 12th August. Which is quite exciting. It’s quite a lifestyle piece, with Thrifty Lesley on the side as it were.

Then yesterday, the agency that started off all the media exposure got in contact to say that they were thinking of doing some kind of Christmas feature. A Christmas lunch for £1 or something. So I shall have to see what I can do.

So many value brand items have increased in price hugely, it’s quite shameful I think to impact on those who can afford it least. I will need to have a look at last years Festive Week and see if that is still doable.

Went to the dentist this morning for a six month checkup and when I made the appointment for the next one, it was in January 2015. So we wished each other Merry Christmas 🙂

    Awesome! I’m also in a magazine this week, but only online I think. To do with science fiction though, not frugaldom.
