Oranges and Lemons.

For some reason, no matter how long in advance you ring to make a Doctor's appointment, it is always at the most inconvenient time. I don't appreciate having to be up at this time on my day off, but as there were no other available appointments here I am. Thought I would do a post before I get ready.

Firstly, wooo the sun is out. Finally after a few days of cloud/rain the sun has made an appearance. Hopefully, this is the start of Summer. Unlikely. 

I can't remember who's blog I was noseying at but I came across a list of DIY blogs. I love a bit of DIY cos it's usually easy on the purse strings. Anyway I discovered this blog/post - http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-satsuma-candle/ I immediately wanted to try these candles out. So the other day I had some spare satsuma's (as you do..) and I gave it a try. After two attempts, yes I'm left handed and can't use a knife, this was the result. 




I know its not perfect, but I still love it. It burned for about 2 hours, which I thought was pretty impressive. I think it could have done with some sort of scent but never mind. What a cheap way to impress your guests!

Have you got any cute DIY tips for me?
