Following my Frugal Friday post on...err....Friday, I had contact via Twitter from Darren Millar - the Dad of the family shown on the "Great British Budget Menu" programme. He confirmed what I thought - that the very last thing they wanted from the show was sympathy and pity - they were wanting solutions and answers. the great news is that they are now getting 28 eggs a week (and all the compost they can use!) from the hens they were given, and although he says that life is still challenging, they're doing OK.
Great news - we can only hope that the other households featured are moving forward as well!
