Poor old Ruby She is certainly different whilst on heat, very clingy. If she could get inside your legs she would. Same whilst we are sitting down in the lounge, or in the kitchen, as close to the safety gate as possible. She watched us decorate the tree without a care in the world, just a quick sniff and so far, she has totally ignored it.

The ultimate guide to building a thrifty Christmas food hamper The only trouble with building a Christmas food hamper can be the price. The cost of a food hamper can easily snowball due to the fact that you pick up bits and pieces on random occasions.

Home made postal Christmas gifts reveal… Some family members have Christmas gifts sent to them. I like to make or re-purpose things. They must be able to fit into a large letter size bag to save postage. No point making something only to spend £3 per gift to send it!

The Dark Side Of The Room If you've been reading for a bit, you'll have this this type of view before, the overstuffed shelves of my pantry. We did a larger shop, which should cover most of this month, so there's no space to squeeze much else.

What I Spent, What We Ate - Welcome to December! I started out with a $25 Hungry Harvest. Then I spent $73 at Costco, and $33 at a local grocery store. So, I'm at $131 to start off December. Yay me! Mr. FG and I went on a date to a gourmet pizza place, and we got McDonald's for the girls before we left.

Baked Tandoori Chicken and Vegetable Pilaf Baked Tandoori Chicken and Vegetable Pilaf. Make this dish super simple by cooking the pilaf in the rice cooker. I have a confession:. I coveted my neighbour's rice cooker. I was, in fact, supposed to be there envying her new Thermomix.

5 Ingredient Salted Caramel Chocolate Mocha Yule Log, 38p This is a fairly cheeky little recipe, mostly because it involves very little work at all - and looks and tastes far more impressive than it should do, considering the sum of its parts. I should confess I didn't make the Yule log in the centre; I bought one from Asda on a whim and made it better.

Zoe's got a Saatva mattress. SO FANCY. And we are all a little jealous. A rep from Saatva reached out a little while ago to see if I could review one of their mattresses, and since Mr. FG and I have a relatively new mattress, I asked if I could have a twin mattress for Zoe.

A plea for a little less Christmas When did Christmas get so big? Christmas seems to have exploded. Everything is festive to the max - bigger, longer, more. It feels like everything got super-sized. Christmas stockings expanded into pillow cases then Christmas sacks.

The Waste Hierarchy The Waste Hierarchy sounds like the dullest thing imaginable, but I have to confess that I kind of love it. I've recorded a podcast episode on the subject, but I figured that with Christmas bearing down on us it was worth a reminder and a look at how it can be applied to all things festive!
