Hi Pam, welcome to you from another newbie to the site.

Veined blue cheese is my favourite or mature cheddar but the kids will only eat mild. Find cheese really expensive though.

Hi Alison as well from another newbie to the site. I am soon to be 46 SAHM to two boys, one 21 and one 10. The 21 year old works full-time but is in his second year at university which he fits in one afternoon/night a week. I thought when he finished his A levels that he perhaps ought to go to university straight away but now his employers are paying for his degree so it has perhaps worked out better financially for him.

Sorry that your mum is so poorly it must be a very difficult time for you all.

Sounds like you are busy with all your cats, we have one dog ourselves.

I haven't worked since the birth of my youngest child and I don't miss it one bit.

Hi everyone, just found a link to this forum on MSE. I am 43 with 2 children aged 14 and 11. I work 1 day a week and volunteer in a charity shop twice a week but I still consider myself a home maker. Money is really tight as we have lost some of our income plus the increase in the cost of living. I see it as a challenge though, although it depresses my DH that we are always skint despite the fact he works so hard and does earn a good salary. Look forward to talking to likeminded people x

Hi Everybody - I followed the MSE link too. Wish I'd found you ages ago!

My daughters are now grown up with their own families and I have two lovely grandchildren of 4 and 2 years. I was a full time teacher but stopped teaching ten years ago (time flies) so I could have time for my girls before they flew the nest. I finally had time for a few hobbies bounce so joined Toastmasters International, the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Gt Britain, a small local charity, got a puppy and offered to do the newsletter at church. Everyone commented on how relaxed I looked Laughing

When the girls left home I felt a bit flat and hubby dropped a few hints Rolling Eyes so I joined a work from home eco business. I just love the freedom of being at home!

Hi loving life and Sue99 welcome to the forum from another newbie to the site.

We are on a tight budget too loving life and my husband works long hours but we have never had lots of money coming in especially when I gave up work so over the years I have become very good at making ends meet and like you I consider it a challenge and due to my thrift we managed to pay off the mortgage 13 years early which really helps us out now. Have you heard of the Ramoska cooker (think I should be on commission I mention it so much lol) but it really saves you putting your oven on at just over 400 watts and cooks food just like it your main oven, that and my slow cooker means I hardly put on my main oven. I also wash with soap nuts which saves me a load on washing powder.

Bildanto, I've seen the Remoska mentioned a lot on MSE but no idea what they do or what one looks like. Will take a look but if it means spending a lot then its probably a no go for now as we need to only spend on essentials.

Re the Ramoska the price has gone up since I brought mine about 2 years ago, I bought mine from QVC and I bought in on easy pay which helped, it was about £84 but now seen them on Lakeland for about £110 so unfortunately they are expensive. I would say look on Ebay but second hand they seem to hold their price. Perhaps car boots would be the place or Gumtree. My mum had one at Christmas and loves it. I did contact QVC as they were no longer showing on their website and asked if they would be getting any more in and she said they were showing on their system but she did not know when. That would be ideal as you only pay the purchase price but after being shown a few times they usually get offered on easy pay which is spreading the cost with no interest over 2/3/4 months. If you go on the Lakeland website they are in stock on there so you can see what they look like and all the reviews. I will certainly post if I see them being offered at a real bargain price.

Hi some nice person from mse recommened this site to me, I am a wife & mother, and try to save money, instead of working, I get fed up of people saying what do you do for a job and you say nothing, I work hard at saving money in the home, I cook from scratch, I am always in the supermarket for the reduced bargains, buy approved foods, get freebies , use coupons , enter competitions, as well as all the house work, walking the dog, etc. Being a homemaker is a full time job , I love it

Phew! Many thanks for the email TP Very Happy - I forgot to bookmark this forum and couldn't find my way back - MSE is so huge it was like looking for a thread in a haystack Laughing

mrsms - I know what you mean, it's time Homemaker was a recognised occupation!

The ovens everyone's discussing - are they the same as the halogen ovens I've seen lately? I love using my slowcookers, I have a large one for batch and joint cooking and a smaller one.

love this emoticon - the tumbleweed reminds me I must go and vacuum up the dog hairs, think she's shedding again Wink

Hi, no the ramoska ovens are like a casserole pot with a lid on and it has a metal stand the heat comes from the lid which is plugged into the electric so it cooks from the top down. I did have a halogen oven and threw it out it wasn't for me.

if anyone loses the forum it can always be found by doing a google search for forums for homemakers, and its mentioned numerous times on the thread called homemakers on MSE on the old style board. You just have to type the thread name into the search facility. Smile

Hello everyone. I discovered this site from a link on Netmums. Just the sort of site I'm looking for Very Happy
I'm a young 50 year old and have a 6 year old daughter, so am kept very busy as you can imagine Smile
I've been at home since she was a baby but worked fulltime up until then as a Nursery Nurse in a Day Nursery.
I do some voluntary work now for the WRVS though which I enjoy.
Looking forward to meeting some nice new friends on here bounce
