Food Update

Image hosted by

Yes, the fridge is looking very empty and the freezer is not much better but all of this hardship is about to come to an end in the coming days as I start back as a Postie tomorrow. Hopefully by the end of the month I'll have been shopping and an empty fridge will be a thing of the past.

Its been a tough few months, where food has been not been taken for granted but has been seen as quite a luxury. Don't get me wrong - I've not been starving or going hungry like so many people experience, but I've had to get by on the very bare minimum to survive.

All of this has helped me to be grateful for the little I have and reminds me how incredibly fortunate we are to be able to have a meal. I hope when I'm back at the Post Office I remember the past few months and don't just slip back into taking things for granted.

There is a fine line between being humbled and being desperate - to be humbled can lead to a positive change in a persons behaviour but to be desperate can lead to a negative situation that can break the human spirit.



  1. I have, but thankfully since posting the topic on 15/05, I have settled into my postie job and get paid weekly so have been able to shop, eat and have some left over to go out.Normality has returned so the worry is now over.
