Life's what you make it.

life's what you make it
Celebrate it
Anticipate it
Yesterday's faded
Nothing can change it
Life's what you make it

It's been a quick 2 weeks since my last blog! Here at the JuicyFig house we have been making the most of our situation, I have been doing piece work at my mum and dads to earn a bit of cash, we have done car boot sales, tried to sell a pile of shoes given to us by a relative to help us out, we have made use of the halogen oven since our own oven has a broken element we can't afford to repair or replace, we had a budget home made TAPAS 20th birthday party for baby Fig, made some good sales on e-bay, went to a fantastic jumble sale at Hurst Green, judged the photographs at the Sabden Village show, put more stuff on e-bay (a lovely size 12 silk skirt by Monsoon), oh and I made 1 pair of jeans out of 2 pairs I had that had worn out - chopping the legs off them both and sewing the good legs to the good top bit, think 'Barbara from The Good life'  and now we are preparing for my Grandma's 97th birthday on Wednesday!

...stops for a breath...
oh - and in between, listening to loads of old vinyl records. Baby Fig came home with a record player and made me feel VERY old by asking me how to work it and getting totally confused between 45 and 33 rpm!

Wow! You have been very busy and very frugal! I need to take a leaf out of your book! I love the idea of the jeans and might just try that myself!

All sounds good to me!! I laughed about the vinyl records :) Twiglet was in the attic with his Dad a few months ago and they found a box of Mr Twig's old records. Twiglet said - oo fancy, what are these ??
