The other thing you can try for heels is a pumice stone under the shower.   The last thing I do before I get out is to give my feet a scrub with one when the skin is nice and soft.  It's a habit I formed when I was a kid and we lived where there were black mineral sands. My mother used to check we'd scrubbed our  feet clean before we were allowed to get into bed...the black sand got everywhere.  The only time I've had problems with cracked heels was when I was pregnant and couldn't reach my feet.

Those steamer liners make cleanup quick and easy....my dh cooked gyozas last night and there was no mess...he normally has a little too much faith in the dishwashers ability to clean and I end up rewashing the varoma...no problem when he lines it!

I'm hoping my new ice cream maker and other toys arrive this week.  I ordered them back in August and they finally started shipping parts of the order last week. Yay...citrus peeler, coconut opener and other stuff that I don't remember any more.  I just have to hope that dh is not at work when the order arrives...I sorta forgot :) to mention I placed it.  The kids know tho and can't wait for the citrus peeler.

Staclee, i normally spray the tray with a little oil, do you think it makes a difference using the liners?

Decided after spending all the money on the ice cream maker that I really should buy an ice cream book so decided on "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz.

http://www.bookdepository.com/Perfect-Scoop-David-Lebovitz/9781580082198

That is the best book for ice cream recipes.  David is a wizard when it comes to imagining new recipes and then making them work.
I've been following his blog  HERE since he started it.  I recommend you read it when you have already had a meal, otherwise, you will find yourself in the kitchen at midnight, trying one of his delicious-sounding recipes.

Couldn't help myself just bought the ice cream book you have been talking about.
The perfect scoop. :)
And to go with it 2 of the tovolo ice cream tubs.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

I've just been having a look at The Perfect Scoop on Amazon.  If you click on the picture of the book, in the link below you can get a mini preview of the book (some recipes are there too so you can start before you get the book).  Looks a great book ! Am deciding whether I NEED it or not lol.

I went to a candle party, which is my first time....not sure how I haven't been until now, but went home poorer for the experience  :P

Loved this tea light lantern...the heat from the tea lights spins the doves



And you can change the spiral to snowflakes



An electric warmer for scented melts, and this one changes its colours, and no need for a flame...DD wanted one too



And a couple of these dessert candles & stands....marshmallow peppermint



And of course some tea lights & melts in different scents....I love my smellies  :D
.........EAT CAKE!
