Surprise, we did make it to the market yesterday. But it was a really quick visit, cause weather wasn't too agreable. It felt rather cold, it was a grey day, lucky there wasn;t too much wind. So we went in the afternoon to the market and I had a shopping car full of stuff at the end. Potatoes, colly flower, butter beans(1 kilo for 1 euro), leek, 1 kilo Brussel sprouts(also 1 euro), mandarines, cooking- or stewing pears(yummie), some apples, and even a new pair of house slippers. Yesterday I already make us some Brussel sprouts for dinner and the rest I just blanched them and after cooling off they went into portions in the freezer. Today I will have to do the rest of the vegetables. It's a little bit of work, but it's so handy to have some in the freezer and it saves a lot of money, believe me.
It was nice to enter the house again after our freezy walk. The garden has a little coat of snow, even here and there on the street it is still a bit white. Next few days they expect it will be even colder, and certainly at night, but towards the weekend till now they say wind will change fron East to South, so hopefully temperature will go up a bit again.
At the moment I am working on the special kit for the little girl I told you about in an earlier post, Mikayla.
And I want to call upon all designers to take part in this collab, the money which will be raised by selling the kits or whatever contribution is done, will go to the good cause. Read all about it on
And this is Mikayla:
Then I must go probably into town centre to look around for just a few more Christmaspresents and have it all ready for posting this week or at the latest begin next week. I don;t think I will go out today, may be if it's not too cold tomorrow. It depends on that and my mood too. Must pick a moment that it will not be too crowded in the centre.
I found you another freebie, I told you the making of them is a bit on low speed, I will try to do my best, but cannot promise anything LOL! As there are popping up on a lot of blogs already Christmas freebies, I can post another one of mine too. It's a small one, but not too bad. Oh and mark the 1st of december on a post-it, cause then I will be posting my freebie for the World Wide Scrapbooking Christmas blogtrain!
And of course we also have a new "collect -a-kit"on our forum that day!
That's it folks for today, I will just spend a little more time on the computer and then will disappear into the kitchen!
Have a fantastic day!
