Today I thought I'd pop round a thank you gift for the greenhouse we were given. We always like to say thank you even if it's a small token just so people know we do appreciate them. We say thanks with eggs or jam and sometimes a bag of veg from the allotment but what do you give someone who has chickens and an allotment of their very own?
The other day i bought two vintage Cadbury mugs as I thought they were quite interesting, they cost 25p each so I didn't mind storing them until I decided what to do with them. Then I thought they would make a good token gift.
I always have a roll of cellophane as it's come in handy so many times. So you got me, I pinched the idea of the local chazza who put's things in baskets, celophanes them up and sticks them in the raffle.........I have no shame ;)
I have done Christmas hampers and Birthday presents and numerous other gifts all wrapped up to make them look that little bit special.
A Cadbury cup needed chocolate though didn't it? This pack was on offer for £1
Twizzle ribbon (no idea what it's real name is) bought from a jumble for 5p a roll.
They are cat lovers so they got a blank card from the card stash drawer, I think a whole pack cost 20p
Ta dahhh who doesn't love chocolate and if they don't like it I'll certainly have it back.
I have a whole bowl of redcurrants..........any suggestions???
My first Cucumber, we will be having this baby in a sarnie because we are that posh! For those reading from outside the UK a sarnie is a sandwich and cucumber sandwiches were considered posh, although I don't know why as they're as cheap as chips.
Cucumber sandwiches were a favourite with the Victorian upper class and formed an integral part of afternoon tea don't you know.........check me out with my history lesson Cynthia.

Well I'm going to go to the Jumble, after all it is my favourite thing to do. Sunday I'm hoping to do a carboot at Coleby. What are your plans for the weekend?
What ever your doing have a great day and if you fancy going to the Jumble come over and say hi as I love a good natter in the queue.
