My Little Cleopatra

Here she is for Egyptian Day today.

The cartouche with her name on it. I can't lay claim to this make, my Mum made it as she had the little hieroglyphic alphabet cards. She had lots of comments about it at school and was very proud of it :)

Yoghurt Maker

(yes I realise the vodka bottle doesn't fit in this picture of healthy!!!)

I have been looking at the EasiYo yoghurt maker for quite a while now and have ummed over it. Yesterday it was on QVC and my darling little daughter decided she wanted me to buy one.

We get through a lot of yoghurt between the 2 of us and I just thought that perhaps if this was good stuff (tasty) it might be cheaper in the long run. Each sachet makes up a litre of yoghurt, which lasts 2 weeks and is full of the good bacteria.

I decided to pop out to Lakeland and get a starter kit this morning and as I was driving along passing MacArthur Glen I suddenly remembered Jennie telling me that Julian Graves sells them and thought there was one there, so I went round the roundabout and popped in to see. Yes they did, I bought one and 2 sachets of yoghurt in cherry and wild berries. As soon as I got home I made up the cherry, so now I just have to wait until 11pm to see whether it's thickened up and tastes nice.

While I was there I decided to pop along to Alfreton and nip into the craft shop. I just picked up a couple of small packs of aida, nothing else took my fancy. So I only spent £2.25 in the craft shop!!!
