My chilli plant and neighbour love
Our chilli plant is struggling a bit today - it's suffering from little spider mites. We've put some cinnamon on it (an organic prefered way to treat it) which is helping a bit but I still think it needs a little tlc. Any ideas? We've used this little plant for about 5 spicy meals so far and are hoping we can use it for many more!
On a separate note, do you like this chair? It's so retro. Yet another neighbour throw out (and in good condition) can you believe! Haha I'm such a scavenger but there always seems to be great stuff left strewn around in a heap ready for the council to collect! Now I have all these mismatching chairs around our old scratched (another neighbour throw out from a couple of years ago) round table. Ah gotta love those neighbours. :-)
When I was little we lived in a teeny tiny village in the heart of the English countryside and this sort of thing never happened (maybe in the 80s people made do a bit more) unless someone purposefully came your way and offered you something they were throwing out and sadly you could always see why...(no meaness intended). I guess that's the difference, city living (with lots of people moving/changing their mind over furniture) and being in an apartment.
Anyway, so glad this week is a little quieter for me. No travel means I have a bit more time to do things like gift wrapping for nephews, write to newly engaged cousins and watch Packed to the Rafters - which is back on our screens, hurrah! :)
Hope you're having a good morning. xx
