Crazy drivers!

How great our local toy library is! Every 3 weeks we get to take home a bunch of new toys for the kids to play with and then return them. Hopefully with no missing or broken pieces. They loved having a turn in this toy car. The colour was especially appealing to Kalyani as pink and purple are her "favourite".

Bokashi buckets and beeswax candles.

Just looking online and drooling over one of these at todae- a bokashi bucket. A what you say? Its an indoor composting system and apparently its odourless, low maintenance and produces a highly nutrient rich liquid fertiliser. Something to do with the fermentation process. I like the sound of it because I could chuck in a lot of organic matter such as meat scraps, citrus and tissues which at the moment don't go to the chooks. Will just have to go on the wish list though...

Have also been looking at and purchasing some beeswax candles. Someone said somewhere (so don't quote me) that there are a lot of nasties in the candles most people burn at home. So hoping to get something better! Love using candles occasionally at meal times, or when I'm writing in my journal, the very occasional long bath time. Lovely to unwind in the evening to the flickering light of a candle.

Oh yeh. Do you like the colour change? I wonder if it will help me post more often?
