We have had to dust off the heater today and get some warmth into the house. Tis a bit on the chilly size. Even though she is trying to reduce her power bills this year, we still have to warm the house on these cold nights.
Mum made herself a tasty pork chop tonight with some more mash. She was happy as the free range pork was on sale at the supermarket. She tries to not buy pork from factories that cage their animals. She wishes that she were more disciplined and could be a vegetarian, but she does like meat. She knows that our NZ grown cows and sheep get to live in the paddocks, see the blue sky and eat lots of green grass. Not so lucky are the chickens and pigs which are factory raised. It's a bit of a third world problem isn't it, worrying about our food, where it comes from and how it was raised.
