stamps, post a letter quick smart

So the price of posting a letter to yo mumma is going up - from 31 March the 60 cent stamp will make way for the new 70 cent postage stamp. So if you've been meaning to write someone a letter, post a card or just send a random item under 500g and no more than 20mm thick then it's your time to shine. 

Get posting people ... use up those 60 cent stamps and share some 'ohh mail' love. Everyone loves getting mail. Start your own 'Happy Mail'  project or just write to your nan.

Why are we waiting ...

Slowly dehydrating. So, I bought a dehydrator. Not your $79 round Kenbrook model, I went all out, lentil-eater-mental and bought an Excalibur (they're over $300 eek). It's part of my 'take your lunch to work' ethos - and I'm trying to stick to it. 

I have been buying fruit leather to snack on, but it's so expensive, especially the stuff that's 100% fruit. The day my new gadget arrived I took myself off to the fruit barn and purchased a crap-load of cheap fruit to make into leather and also to dry. 

So far so good ... mango is my favourite, but peeling and slicing it is a bitch! I might try berries next as they shrivel up nice and sweet and chewy.

Apples and a strawberry and yoghurt leather...

the apples after drying and some banana...
