Sorry this is late. Last week was hectic!
We had friends over for a Christmas catch up, went to the Scitech Christmas party, my eldest son had his schools Christmas dinner, did some Xmas baking for gifts, caught up with a friend for lunch, dropped off some gifts to another friend and did some crafting!
Here's my frugal tasks I did this week:
-Packed a picnic dinner and went to a free Scitech Christmas party.
-Baked some shortbread and packaged them for gifts.
-Took Mr 9 for some free craft activities at Bunnings.
-Gave myself a DIY manicure ready for Mr 14's school dinner.
-Cooked dinner for friends. I had planned on cooking a BBQ, but it stopped working so I made a mince pasta bake and salad for dinner. Dessert was supposed to be pavlova but that didnt work our so I defrosted the spare hazlenut choc cake I made for hubby's birthday a few weeks ago, so we had that for dessert. Normally I would have run out to the shops, so it was great to use food I had on hand.
-Made rocky road and peppermint bark, also for gifts.
-Sold some of my hand pored soy candles.
- Took Mr 9 for a drive to see some Christmas lights.
-Picked more tomatoes and silverbeet from my garden.
I wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas!
