I finally got my hands on a copy of 'The Simple Things'. It's been advertised for quite a while and so I suppose I had high hopes. It was a bit of a disappointment. I tend to think simple living goes hand in hand with a few 'green' principles (maybe I'm wrong) and was at least expecting the paper to be of the lovely matt recycled type.
I wasn't expecting pages of expensive objects of desire either. How is buying new stuff complying with the title of the magazine? I understand the need for endorsing products but maybe a little more imagination is needed here?
That said, lots of the articles appeal to me, the magazine is nice and thick and you get plenty of variety for your money. A little bit of crochet too.
We will most definitely be making apple chutney using one of the recipes and the bounty from our apple tree.
