Mabel's 'Be-Able' - Tips and things ….



Well, here we are just a few weeks after the Christmas celebrations and already they seem in the distant past and all we are left with are happy memories (I hope), a few pounds heavier and lots and lots of sterling pounds lighter. But, never mind, this is the time of year when we forget the grey skies outside, turn to the tantalising holiday brochures and picture ourselves lying on that sun drenched beach in the Bahamas . . .


Well, we can all dream can't we? Personally, I need a goal ahead as I always think that February is the dullest month of the year when nothing is actually happening (apart from developing what I call the 'February face'), so I delegate this month as the opportune time to complete all the jobs I have been putting off during the past year and getting the house and finances in some sort of order, which will hopefully shift a few of those extra Christmas pounds . . . and, to shift that 'February face' how about mixing a few blobs of self-tanning lotion/cream into your usual face cream and in a few hours you will have a healthy glow. Your friends will say (just like the song) "My, you do look well", and if you hear the phrase often enough you will begin to feel well. You don't believe me? Try it!


Now, as we get older the two things paramount in our minds are health and money. Health, we will deal with at a later date, but, meanwhile, as they say 'keep taking the tablets' and by that I mean eg. a good multi-vitamin and mineral, extra Vitamin C during these winter months, Omega 3 (pure fish oils), perhaps Echinacea to boost the immune system, Glucosamine & Chondroitin to help the joints, and Ginkgo Biloba to help the circulation.

Money, well it's time to remind you that if you have any savings and the tax man is siphoning off 10% or 20% of your interest, then don't forget (if you haven't already used up this year's ISA allowance) that you can put £3,000 out of the tax man's reach by investing in a mini-cash ISA. It is important to remember that this year's tax-free ISA allowance must be used before the end of this tax year which is the 5 APRIL 2005. So there are only a few weeks left … and as the saying goes 'If you don't use it, YOU WILL LOSE IT!

So, still thinking of money (or the lack of it) why don't we get together and pool our ideas? Let us come up with great ideas that won't cost us a penny.

Now, I'm going to start off with something that all we ladies have plenty of
'Old Tights'. . . And, why do we end up with a load of them instead of throwing them away?. . . Because when we ladder them we put them in the drawer and think that they will do to wear under trousers or around the house. Or, when we buy the same shade (as the thrifty ones among us invariably do), we just cut off the damaged leg and so acquire a new pair with the added advantage of a double thickness around the 'botty' for the winter. However, there comes a time when even the single leg tights die a death, so suggestions please on what we do with them? ? Now, before you say "put them over the head and rob a bank in order to pay the Council tax" (although we all understand the feeling), this is not exactly what we had in mind, and to start you off, I will throw a few ideas 'into the pot', under a couple of suggested headings to get the brains working. We'll add more headings as your ideas come rolling in!
