Pesky possums!

 Does anyone else have issues with possums? My hubby bought a beautiful (and expensive) dahlia last week and just as well I took a photo of it as the next day all the flowers had disappeared....obviously the possum was eating anything that looked appetising in its path although I didn't know they ate dahlia flowers.

At last Autumn has arrived

 We have had such strange weather lately. A couple of weeks ago it was quite hot but now there has been a cool change and it seems that at long last we are heading into Autumn. I am sure the plants in the garden are quite confused.

Saving money when making soap

As I am sure everyone has noticed, the cost of soap making oils has increased dramatically especially olive oil. Last year when I ran out of olive oil I dreaded having to spend a lot of money on new stock and was pleasantly surprised when I went into Coles to find that they had some large tins of oil reduced from over $30 to $6.95. I have no idea why they were reduced but I picked up two cans straight away in case they were sold quickly.

A bit behind

 Well, the start of 2023 has been a tad disappointing as I finally succumbed to COVID at the end of December and spent the first week of the new year in bed. At first I thought I had a bad flu and it didn't enter my mind that I had the virus until I lost my sense of taste and smell a few days later and thought I had better do  a test and sure enough I was positive.

Happy Christmas

 It is nearly the end of yet another month and, as it is only a few days until Christmas, I just want to wish everyone a very happy and blessed Christmas and I hope that 2023 brings you much joy and good health.
