Serendipitous findings...........



Looking through and sorting out my Kilner supplies, I found this little packet of rubber rings; it says "for jars before 1948" on the front! They're still in good condition and will fit some of my narrower-necked jars.



My second find was in a book; I bought a copy of Change the World for a Fiver - full of little things you can do easily to help look after the planet. The "fiver" refers to the five pounds th book cost, but I got it in Oxfam. One of teh suggestions was to plant your own Christmas tree, to save buying one, or buying a fake, plastic one. Luckily, the seeds were still attached in the book, inside a lovely packet. So, I'll be sowing them later today, although they won't make a usable Christmas tree for a while yet!

What a fantastic book! I look forward to seeing something resembling a Christmas tree in the festive season.

Oooh - I've got that book somewhere too - I wonder if the seeds are still inside. I feel a loft rummage coming on - although not until I have weeded a very weedy veg patch and cleaned the house :(

If they're up by Christmas, I might bring them in anyway!!

eco-gites - go for the loft rummage first, the rest can wait :0)
