Lucy’s List – May (week 3)

It’s payday here! I’m determined to rein in my unnecessary spending this month. I got a bit carried away last month with buying cloth pads (pad I really don’t need!) and it made the last couple of weeks until payday a real stretch.

Fiddle Things

I haven’t blogged about my crochet work for a while now but The Pie Patch Shop is still going strong.

I inadvertently stumbled across a new idea when talking to another mum at the school gates. Her daughter had developed a habit of picking and scratching at the skin on her face. It had started off as one tiny bug bite. The bite had long since disappeared but the girl couldn’t seem to break the habit and she had a scattering of sores over her nose and cheeks. I’m not sure she was even aware that she was doing it and the mum was at a loss to know how to help her to stop.

Undercrackers

Those baggy old shapeless “period pants” that you’ve had since 1997 are doing you no favours. You know the ones I mean.

I’ve worked with Jo at Boobalou several times before, reviewing all sorts of eco friendly products – Eco Egg, family cloth, reusable teabags. I’ve also ordered from them many times as a customer – cloth pads, unsponges, bamboo pot scrapers. As a UK stockist of eco alternative products, their range is nothing if not varied! There are ALL kinds of things you didn’t know you neeeeeeeeded in your life until you browsed the online store.

Lucy’s List – May (week 2)

Hmm. Too many takeaways are creeping in. It’s not good. I always factor one in every week because it’s our treat and gives me a night off from cooking. But I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I’ve been a bit run down and tired lately and one takeaway has turned into two. It’s an awful waste of money and isn’t going to help me get my mojo back.
