A lovely treat in the mail today from my mum - this neat book "Tips from your Nana" by Robyn Paterson. I have had it on my wish list for a while as it looks like such a great read- the slogan is "Waste not, Want not!" which is right up my alley at the moment. Don't think I'll be preserving fruit any time soon but there is a great recipe for compost which will come in handy when we dust off the compost bin and actually get it working properly for the first time, and some lovely free ideas for kids in there too- potato stamps, homemade playdough and even how to make a kaleidoscope!
Here is a picture of the book next to a photo of my nana, who I wish was still around to teach me her incredible sewing skills!
