I went over to see Melanie at Frugal Kiwi this afternoon. This was actually the first time we've met in real life and it was lovely!
I went to pick up the beautiful bag that I won from her. The photos that I'd seen didn't do it justice as it's even more gorgeous in the flesh. I also got to meet the chickens and the bees, taste the honey, eat cake, drink home made ginger beer and also some water kefir and do a bit of needle felting ( only stabbed myself about half a dozen times ~ boy those needles are sharp). I was there for ages so I hope I didn't outstay my welcome.
Anyway, Melanie kindly gave me some water kefir grains and following her instructions
I made it up - just got to wait 24-48 hours and I should have a lovely slightly fizzy refreshing drink that I can make again and again.
Looks cool doesn't it
oh and as if the bag wasn't enough loveliness for one day I was also given some home made castile soap.
Now the bag ~ amazing or what.
Thank you Melanie.
