What luck - our local op-shop had their end of winter clearance this week, so I had a great time shopping! They even threw in a lovely carry bag!
$13.50 bought me three pairs of trousers for the children (I'm particularly happy with the 50c black formal trousers that will fit Briar Rose perfectly for choir performances), fleece tops for both girls for next season, a shirt and jumper for moi, four warm snuggly tops for The Little Prince, two childrens' books and a small toy pony. Considering the books and pony cost $2 of the $13.50, I think that was great bargain shopping.
It's time to get out into the garden again. Ginger Rose has proved an enthusiastic helper.
She was very good at looking after the Little Prince while I harvested our compost.
I was quite impressed with it. I'm getting the hang of this mucking around with dirt stuff!
Doesn't it look as though it should actually grow something? Nah - my black thumbs will take care of that, but with any luck we'll be one step further along the path to actual productivity in the garden.
Grandma L visited recently, knitting up a storm and attacking the mending basket with gusto! The Little Prince has a new warm and snuggly outfit that's getting plenty of use in the Canberra winter! The second pair of leggings are a pair I recently finished in the gorgeous organic wool from the wonderful K. Thanks, K!
