Here are some definitions for you in case you think I'm talking about something toilet-related! No 'Poo means no shampoo, washing your hair using only natural substances, usually plain water, or bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. Low 'Poo means using only shampoos that don't contain nasty-chemicals on your hair. Google it if you want to know more, there's lots of info to read online.
It feels like a good time to make a fresh start, so here I am with a new blog name and web address. I haven't been happy with my blog's name for a while, I have imported all posts and comments from The Last Biscuit to secondhandsusie.blogspot.co.uk and I will be slowly making moves to post there instead of here.
I would love it if my bloggy friends would follow me over there, using bloglovin' or the followers widget on the left of my new page. I hope to see you there.
Here are some second hand treasures I have found recently...
Glass bird, 30p from the car boot sale. Glass penguin 70p charity shop.
Retro plant pots, ceramic one £1, plastic one 25p, from the charity shop. I think the plastic one is quite old, it says made in England on the bottom, whereas most modern plastic things come from China.
Pink and purple badger mug, 50p. Stag espresso cup 20p. Charity shop.
Cat mug, 20p. Currently a nice home for my basil plant. Charity shop.
Arabel's Raven - Joan Aiken
When I was little the BBC made this book into TV series, which I loved. Arabel has a very naughty pet raven, called Mortimer, he has many socially unacceptable habits (such as eating the stairs) but sometimes, he saves the day.
The Fiery Heart - Richelle Mead
This is the fourth book in this series, which follows on from the Vampire Academy series, which has been made into a film. Even though they're for teenagers and about vampires, they're not badly written or Twilight-ish at all, just lots of supernatural action and romance in a nice, easy read.
Save with Jamie - Jamie Oliver
There are a few veggie recipes in here, the first chapter is about 50 pages long and is called 'veg', so there's a few to choose from even though this book has lots of meaty recipes too. I'm especially tempted by the giant rosti, yum!
Easy Crochet, Country - Nicki Trench
Nicki Trench is my favourite crochet pattern writer, so I had to check this out and it doesn't disappoint. It's full of lovely, wearable patterns for hats, shawls, scarves, gloves as well as pretty things for your home. I can see myself buying this book, and the rest of the series, it's so good!
Have you read anything excellent recently? I currently have 19 books in my waiting to read pile - eek!
