    Cottage living. Just converted attic and a warm and cosy room with a lovely view, and single bed.In regards to food I do not eat red meat! and don't do spicey foods, everything else I eat. Meal times vary at times, but love to sit down and have meals. Sometimes have food made up and ready for next day..really depends on my day.
