I'm shopping at the moment! At Westfield having a lovely wander and shop. Have already spent too much at Country Rd but would still like a pair of boots. Just having an early lunch.

I bought 2 stackable baskets to tidy up a kitchen cupboard, and they don't fit!!!  They would have been okay, but have little clips that you fold over so they can stack, and it makes it just a tiny bit too wide. 

Not to worry, have put them in the cupboard under the sink which also needed some serious tidying. :-))

Oh, I forgot, we got a fish tank for DS's 6th birthday  ;D
It has a voucher for 2 fish, so once we get it all set up, he can choose his own.

I have two of the Zojirushi water boilers as I like to have near boiling water instantly available.  I do have an "InstaHot" faucet at a kitchen sink but I like having the boiler in my office so I don't have to trek out to the kitchen every time I want some tea, cocoa or ?.  
The one I have in the office is 3 liters.  

I also have one in my bathroom so I can sterilize my toothbrushes, etc., and occasionally I want near-boiling water for mixing facial stuff.  (I have an oatmeal based facial mask that calls for boiling water to mix the stuff before it is left to set for 15 minutes to cool and thicken)

The boilers can be set to hold the water at the temp you wish.  I use filtered water so they don't have to be put through the cleaning cycle as often.  Before I began using only filtered water I had to clean them about every three months because my water is high in calcium.

Looks great Kim, I'm sure you will still get some use out of them. We purchased some outdoor heaters which are on the wall above our outdoor couch and they provide instant heat. I love reading outside in winter with the heater on!

That looks wonderful Frozzie, hoping there will be a few more warmer days to come for you to try it out.

Kim, ours is just a small electric bar infrared heater which we mounted above the lounge. The heat doesn't travel far but is instantaneous and is great for sitting on the couch

Lovely setting Kim.
