* We had lots of leftovers from Darren's party on Sunday. So Monday night our tea consisted of sausage rolls, mini quiches and birthday cake. Jessica and Megan had celery sticks, carrot sticks, cheese , kabana and pita chips in their lunchboxes a few days running. They were very happy with their lunches.
* Two more of our chickens are back on the lay. SO EXCITING !!! It looks like three out of five are laying. We sold one dozen eggs this week.
* Dried most of the washing on clothes horses with a few things put in the dryer.
* Turned the heater off for two days when the sun was shining.
* I had some dental work done early this week so I sent Darren out to get some milk. This was the only grocery spending for the week as we made do with the fruit and veg we bought last week.
* Saved some tissue paper, ribbon and gift bags from presents recently given.
* Darren planted out some veg seedlings he'd grown from seed.
* Megan made a double batch of scones for the party. Although they were very popular, we had some left over so I popped them into the freezer for future morning teas.
* Donated two bags of clothes to Savers and received a discount stamp.
* Hand washed the dinner dishes a few times this week.
* I opened a new foaming hand wash dispenser a couple of weeks ago. On Sunday the bottle was half empty so I topped it up with water. The soap still feels luxurious. I bought a few of the foaming pumps last year when they were on sale. I wanted to have a few spare as I didn't know how long they'd be on the market for or if they broke easily. My girls have been using the same pump for over a year.
* I was searching the internet for a picture suitable for my kitchen wall but couldn't find anything I liked. So I printed off one of my blog photos and put it in a frame that was given to me a few years ago. Cost - ZERO and it looks fantastic. I'm very proud of myself as I'm a bit tech challenged. I somehow worked out how to print it off without my family doing it for me.
