Mmmmmmmmmmm, nice citrussy smells. I've been drying orange, lemon and lime slices today. Among other things.

I've also done a lot of washing-up, finished another owl and made a hot-water bottle cover for the Boy out of his old fleece dressing-gown. The photographs I took of the hot-water bottle cover came out a bit rubbish so I'll take few more tomorrow and show them off in tomorrow's post because I am inordinately proud of how well it turned out! The Boy likes it and Miss Mouse has already complained that I didn't do one for her too, but the Boy was making do with a pillowcase for a hot-water bottle cover while Miss Mouse has a perfectly good knitted cover made by my mum years ago - probably when I was a student actually.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the dried citrus slices - I saw a picture somewhere of a kind of wreath made out of dried orange slices but I don't think I have enough. Perhaps with large beads for spacers. I have some from my old beaded car-seat cover, though I'd need to paint them. Hmm. Or maybe I could make paper beads..

Not any more, I went to the chippy on the way home from the school disco last night! It did smell good for a while though. Must make some pomanders next...
