Bought a cold frame kit. One of those assemble yourself jobs. It is 1 meter square with lift up top. We did our usual fight our way through assembling it. I have been starting a few lettuces inside in pots as it has been too cold for seeds in the garden, and I am too mean to pay for second rate seedlings. I should have some nice seedlings ready for spring planting.

A couple of months ago I bought some felt ‘bootee’ slippers from NZ (they were made in Mongolia!) and liked them so much I bought another pair for myself and a pair for my DS’s birthday.  They are amazingly lovely and comfortable and warm.  DH is now thinking about getting a pair as well!

They look brilliant and warm.  I had a great pair that were similar but Bonds. I could wash them and they were cosy. However they have disappeared. I have no idea where they are. I'm sure I took them away in the van but they aren't in there.

The "bootee" slippers looks very warm and snuggly Marina.

Both, Chookie.  The new pair will go to Guildford today and I'll keep the original pair in the city.

I had to buy a new phone yesterday as mine wouldn't work.  As I still live in the "dark ages" regarding phones I didn't realise mine was still on 2g and that has now finished.  I'm having some fun learning how to use the new one tho. :) :)

An exciting purchase Margaret. I had a CDMA a few years ago and they kept sending me texts to say it would stop working.
I picked up the new nano sim for my new iPad yesterday. I will go to the Apple store on Saturday for the iPad.

Alyce  had her icecream moulds back in stock so I have some of those. Then this morning I bought another new T shirt and a pair of jeans (Have to boast-a size smaller) and as I was leaving I saw another T shirt that I loved. Lucky DH understands that I need heaps of T shirts and trousers. Very nice of him.
I think I will have to unsubscribe from the Suzanne Grae emails. Their clothes are my sort of things and the price suits me.

Congratulations on the drop in size cookie, a good reason to need new clothes.

I called into Harbour Town this afternoon, the 2 shops I wanted to visit were no longer there so I ended up buying a new quilt cover set for my bedroom - not on my list LOL.

I remember going there either before or after we visited you last time we were in Adelaide.
