On Defrosting Nutella in the Microwave

It's been rather chilly lately, and what with the recent covering of snow we received the other night, it should not have come as a surprise when today I had to heat my Nutella up to make it remotely spreadable. Yes ladies and gentlemen, it had pretty much frozen in my cupboard. Fortunately I am a resourceful kind of soul, and this little obstacle did not prevent me from my Nutella and toast. Although perhaps it should have made me think twice about it, as I am supposed to be on a bit of a detox...

Anyway, this seems like a nice way of introducing my latest craft creation! Last post I was (pathetically) excited to buy a draught excluder, but to my horror, Leicester does not sell them. Anywhere. The ones I found on Amazon were pretty, but expensive. £12.00 for a draught excluder?! I think not!

So the aforementioned resourcefulness kicked in and I promptly started searching for tutorials. I had a stash of fabric from my splurge in the summer and an ab-fab sewing machine so why the hell not? In the end I chose this tutorial. Super quick and easy and it works a treat on the inch and a half gap at the bottom of my internal door...

In another desperate bid to keep warm I invested in a load of thermals - tops and trousers! I know I know, essentially I'm practically 21 and I just admitted to purchasing long-johns but I've never been my age in my head...

How are you guys keeping warm this winter?
