This is my latest bargain purchase.
I have been wanting one of this old phones for a while, but everywhere I've looked, they've either been too expensive, or have been reproductions. I got this one of Ebay for a good price and I love the colour of it. I do have to say, I get slightly unnerved when it rings as I'm not used to the traditional sound it makes!
This phone was made in the 70's and is in such good condition - all I needed to do was to plug it in! I had also forgotten the 'cup' they used to have at the back for carrying them around. Just think how many were discarded 20-30 years ago, and now they're back in fashion?!
Despite wanting to rebel slightly, I am being sucked into Christmas mode, mainly due to the Christmas orders I'm having to make. So, I've reluctantly given in and have given some thought to presents this year.
I made this at the weekend -
Peanut Butter fudge (a Sophie Dahl) recipe. Interestingly, Nina also made the recipe, but put a great topping on hers. I wasn't a great fan of Sophie's programme, but this recipe is great as it uses icing sugar which worked really well.
I thought I might make this and/or a variation to give as gifts this year. It's cheap, simple and I think it would make a nice present especially if it's prettied up (and that the recipient likes fudge!).
Despite the temperatures dropping considerably over the last few days, I still have a few flowers also determined to rebel!
Bye for now.
