Have you tried any DIY cleaning products or skin care products from the many recipes on the internet?
I make my own laundry detergent, and kitchen cleaner, both with great success. Beauty wise I have tried a few things, but the best has to be the Body Scrub I found a few months ago. It seems to be working well, and has made some lovely gifts for friends

Do you like to enter sweepstakes, giveaways, or prize drawings?
Well..I try...but never win. I used to play the lottery but Im not tempted now. But, I do buy raffle tickets for local charity fund raisers..so even if I dont win..the charity does


How often do you visit your local library? Do you have a local library?
The library here is within walking distance, and I tend to go at least once a week, not only for books, but for the computers and printers. They also have a lovely little tea room.

Do you have a simple mobile phone or one that does lots of things?
Im a lucky girl...I have two. A very basic cheap one that I use for calls while Im in the UK, and a Smartphone that I use to skype and send text messages to the the States, plus lots of other things.

Tell me something new or interesting. Please:)
My daughter has a new kitten, Miley. She and her brother were taken to the cat rescue after they were found in the town on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, her brother didnt make it. At least Miley has a good home now

Until next week everyone

Love and Hugs

  1. Awww what a cute kitty! We have several black and white kitties that hang out here at our house. We used to have one that we named Mittens. She was a dainty one, all prim and proper, but so sweet.

    Enjoy your new grand-kitty. :)

  8. Thank you for the link for the body scrub recipe. That is one DIY personal care product that I haven't tried. I also make my own laundry detergent, a kitchen cleaner and also a bathroom cleaner. They all remain with me because they really do work!
