Going Green!

Despite the best efforts of the british weather to turn things white again today, inside we are definately going green!  Its been a long standing joke now that there is infact a shade of green called VickiGreen - somewhere between an olive & an emerald green! As every time we decoratr or I choose something new it often ends up being green or having green in it.

Today is very green - firstly I've ended up wearing a green t-shirt & green cardi - fortunately with a purple dress & blue jeans - oh yes I am colourful!!

I decided to dye the thrifted crochet cushion cover I found yesterday and put it in the machine with a couple of other items including the free CK bag from the 'Make' book - I found the dye when I was sorting out last week - the colour? Green of course.

Lunch today was soup from Waitrose - Thai Green Curry of course!!

Did anyone see the family on the news during the week - so green they only throw away one bag of rubbish a year!! Impressive and green to the extreme!

Here's hoping the weekend ends up being more green than white (I hoped we'd seen the back of that).

See you soon

The snow they forecast for round here this weekend is now not coming...hooray!I remember reading about that family in the Mail...amazing! We have just been provided with a blue bin which takes just about everything apart from compost and kitchen waste,so not so much sorting which is great.
Enjoy your 'green' weekend!

I'm really appreciating green after having snow for over a month, didn't realise how much I'd missed it. Have a great and green weekend.
