Thought I'd share this photo of Spencer with you... is it my imagination or is he winking?!
What a dreadful week weather wise. It just won't stop raining!
On the positive side though I haven't had to water the seeds I planted in our veggie patch. Nothing much to show yet but fingers crossed.
I do have a few seedlings coming up in the greenhouse though - courgettes, butternut squash, rudbeckia and sweet peas.
Apart from the weather, it's been a lovely week with impromptu visits from my parents and some good friends. Catching up on everyone's news, drinking tea and coffee.....lovely :)
Today I thought I'd share with you this little tip I saw on the TV programme Super Scrimpers. I must admit I kind of scoffed at it when I saw it on the telly but I tried it and it's really good if you don't like to waste anything.
I don't buy expensive face creams but I do like to use one with UV protection. At the moment I'm using Nivea's Light Day Cream which comes in a tube. It's quite cheap at about £3-£4 and lasts me about a month or so. Last month I had got to the point where I just couldn't squeeeeeze any more out.
I cut the tube a little way down from the top....
Sorry about the rubbish photo but hopefully you can see there's quite a lot of cream still left in there.
I then used the top cut part as the top :)
I managed to get at least another week's worth of face cream out of the tube. And this makes good savings, say, over a year :) After all, it all adds up doesn't it?
You could also do this with hand creams or any other creams that are in similar plastic tubes :)
Not too much crafting to show you this week but I realised I hadn't shared with you my patchwork baby quilt that I finished recently.
It's made with cosy flannel/flannelette in lilacs, pinks and white....
with frayed edge seams on one side.....
and traditional seams on the other.....
The quilt becomes softer each time it is washed :)
Fun to make, pretty and so snuggly for a baby or toddler :)
Please don't forget to pop by tomorrow for Spencer's Sunday Hats!
See you then,
