So, the lovely Mama Belle laid down a challenge. What she wants to know is 10 NEW (not the same old thing) things you've discovered that you can't live without and why. So here goes:-
Ella's kitchen organic pouches. These are brilliant because they're just pureed fruit, so you can give them to children of any age. And because they've got the fiber in as well, it's like a meal and a drink in one! I try to keep some in the car. You can freeze them and use them as cool packs to keep a picnic cold, then they go like slushies. And they're pretty low calorie, if I fancy a snack!
Diesel jeans. I love them! They fit me. Most of the time they look pretty good (I think - if not, please tell me!). They're not too expensive. And they're pretty hardwearing.
On-line scrabble/Lexulous. I am a complete scrabble addict! 'Nuff said!
Tinted/pearlised lip balm. By this time of the winter, in the damp Oxford air, pretty much everything gets chapped. Nice lip balm makes you look smart and saves your lips.
My crockpot! So uncool, but so useful for vegetarians. Especially in the winter. And also for cooking up beans or pulses, or anything that needs to cook overnight. Just brilliant!
Fleece nighties. So comfy! And while you may not look so hot, they make you lovely to cuddle!
The Phillips 'Add-a-Bike' tag along child's trailer bike. I am now a 'Long Vehicle'.
I have one child on the front, and one on the back! This gets us to school and back two days a week. Lovely in every type of weather, except rain!
Angostura bitters. A ridiculous luxury. I just like to have the makings of a champagne cocktail around, should I feel the need!
Anything from the Nature Babycare range. They're all natural and they decompose.
I know that I'm just never going to get to the stage where I use cloth for everything!
Facebook! Can't live without it!
Oh, and just for the record, if you're ever tempted to order a de-caffeinated, soya milk cappuccino, with sugar-free syrup - DON'T! It tastes like cr*p!
Hot 'Apple Spice' apple juice is ,however, rather nice! You live and learn!
