A snippet of this and that



The weekend was nice and fine, on Saturday I attended the Simple Living workshop on how to make home made beauty products. It was a really interesting lesson on how cheaply it is to make your own products and how healthy they are when you are just adding a few natural ingredients. Nanna Chel of Going Grey and Slightly Green gives a good run down of what happened at the workshop.  There was also a swap table and I came home with some pumpkin, beans, rocket, and we were given some home made beauty products to take home after I swapped my Pot holder ladies which seemed to be approved of as I didn't bring any home. I did seven and have two left for presents at a later date. A very good day I think.

Mum preparing dinner

Sunday came around. Palm Sunday for religious folk and Sunday dinner for us. Mum prepared the meal and Dad set up the BBQ that's just been sitting for ages not being used to be finally be put in use.



The meal turned out very nice. All the family who came over seemed to enjoy it too.



I hope everyone is having a good day or evening wherever you are.

  1. Now Shiralee, you will do a tutorial about how you coloured those pot holders, won't you? :-)

      Looks like I have another 'lesson' to do.

  2. The roast looks wonderful Shiralee, we also did a roast in our BBQ - it is such a good alternative to the oven, especially when the weather is hot. I saw Chel's potholder - gorgeous colour and pattern.

    1. Barb,
      We think the BBQ is also a good saver for electricity. And I agree it's better to use in hot weather. I'm glad the potholders are appreciated. I hope they will be used too.

  3. I'm with Barb on the roast - that crackling looks done to perfection.
