The highlight of the week was Scarlett's Birthday. She turned the big 1 and we had a picnic in the park. It was a beautiful day.
There were pink cup cakes and Harper thought these were just fabulous.
We had everyone there, Great Grandma's and cousins and Aunty Chloe and Luke (the big kids)
As you can see it was a lovely day and a beautiful park which is two streets away from us. It is filled with Kookaburra's that sang the whole time.
Some savings for the week were:
Luke gave Andy a heap of yabbies so that was dinner one night.
I was given jars. Just wen the jar situation was getting grim two bags of jars came in!
At the supermarket I found some bargain steak so that became dinner that night.
I picked the last of the peaches... or close to the last... some I sent home to Dad. Chloe took a bag home too. I think I picked about 15 kilos this week (over 30 lbs)
We lived on fresh peaches which are so nice cold from the fridge on a hot day. I also froze more and made a crumble.
Mum came to the city for the party with a bucket of farm honey. It is 15 kilos of pure lovely honey. So beautiful. The going price seems to be about $15 a kilo so this added $225 to my Vicky Challenge! Very happy!
I had a roadside find. I cleaned up this little bike for Harper. I added stickers. It is not in new condition but it is the next size up from what she has and she will have fun with it!
Otherwise it was a case of trying to stay cool, water the garden in the evening and keep the stove off!
Thank you for the huge response to Wednesdays "The Home Pharmacy" post. Thank you for so much help! I can say this week I have learned so much already.
How did you feather your nest, save money, get ahead or build up your pantry this week?
You might have been struggling with cold weather instead of the heat!
Have a wonderful weekend! xxx
