I menu planned for the week and my groceries were only $75 (including a $12 bottle of laundry liquid).
|Layer of ratatouille, egg and topped with cheese. Mmmmm.|
I have shopped at the garden plot 1st. One of my garden neighbours is off travelling Nepal for a few weeks and told me to help myself in exchange for me watering the garden. So this has allowed me a few more goodies then usual.
|Shopping at my plot 1st. Dolly snacking on Snake Beans.|
Dolly was on school holidays for 1 week and we went to lots of FREE activities including arts & crafts, out door Life Be In It activities, computer games at our local Officeworks and a movie under the stars (Rango).
|Outdoor Life Be In It team encouraging kids to be active.|
|15 minutes on the Computer Games at Officeworks Kid Station.|
|Free Movie - we took our blanket, drinks, pop corn and lollies.|
Our lastest couchsurfing couple included a qualified hairdresser so I received a hair cut & dye whilst Dolly had her hair done each day in exchange for the couch.
|Ready for School Rapunzel style.|
And tonight I commenced work on a 2 year old Birthday gift out of old clothes and scraps. Dolly was invited on very short notice to a party this Saturday morning at 9am. Not much time to create but pushing myself along. My mum picked up the Softies Magazine for only 30 cents at a local op shop, just for me :-) Of course the mags instructions are all with new fancy pantsy bits and bobs. But I'm repurposing old stuff that needs a second chance and hopefully it will turn out looking presentable.
|Creating on a Tight Schedule - Yet Again.|
How is October fairing for you?
