2012 – Over & Out

a thrifty mrs new year Like most years 2012 has given us here at Thrifty Towers both ups and downs but I’m coming out of the year older, wiser and happier – which is always good.

This year saw this ‘ere blog grow and get bigger than I expected. Which has been both hard work and a lot of fun. I’ve gained a new job in broadcasting as a result of my blog, learnt lots of new skills and made new and very wonderful friends.
I have a lot of plans for A Thrifty Mrs in 2013. I’m looking forward to trying out new things but also to getting back to lots of my favourite old topics.
Bring on 2013!
P.S. Happy new year.
P.P.S. Thanks for sticking with me through another year! This blog wouldn’t be where it is without you guys, so honestly THANK YOU! If you’ve been reading but have never said hi, do leave a comment below so I can get to know a little about you.
