The aftermath

Well it's Saturday lunchtime and we have just waved good-bye to the last of our daughters friends . We continued birthday celebrations yesterday evening with a trip to Xscape at Castleford to do sledging for her birthday treat. Now this is not cheap but your only thirteen once.

A good time was had by all. Would like to have joined in myself, it looked fun but cold. They came off frozen and very wet. Birthday celebrations continued back home with food and then a chocolate fountain and a birthday cake finishing with a sleepover.

Went to Aldi yesterday to buy one of their weekly offers which was a mushroom growing kit for £3.99

The box says should get 2-3 crops so I'm going to grow them and weigh the mushrooms when I pick them and see if it works out cheaper to grow my own rather than buy in the supermarket. I will do a search on the internet for mushroom kits and grow my own if it works out cheaper. Will let you know how I get along with them in a few weeks time.

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Happy belated birthday to Eva, she will be in the same year as my daughter who will be 13 in July. My son was at Xscape at Castleford today celebrating his birthday, though he wasn't sledging. I'm looking forward to seeing how you get on with the mushroom kit, I've heard of people using these kits before with mixed results.
