Hello. I was lucky with the two avocados I bought last week on a yellow sticker for 18p. I love them but I don't pay full price for them, only buying when they are reduced. You don't get any indication as to what they will be like inside till you open them up. If they are a bit squishy they might have gone a bit past it and it's a big disappointment when they are discoloured. But as you can see this is perfect, even though it is seven days out of date.
This very nice piece of fabric is a window blind, I got it from the Hull Scrapstore when I was there a couple of months ago. I thought I could get two of bags out of it, so I unpicked the folds and the side seams and ironed out the creases, this gave me an extra few inches. It is not quite enough for two full size shopping bags, so I used every part of it and managed to squeeze two slightly smaller bags out of it. It is also fully lined so the bags are double thickness.
Someone asked what a Scrapstore is. Take a look at this post I wrote in January 2010. I was a volunteer at the Scunthorpe branch which has now closed. This is the Facebook site for the Hull Scrapstore. This is the web site for Hull Scrapstore. And this site gives a list of Scrapstores in the UK.
Tonights dinner was pasta on a bed of salad leaves, topped with mushrooms cooked in oil and lemon juice with garlic powder, grated cheese, and yogurt. It was so so tasty. I think I've had my quota of greens today, ha ha.
