Dont do it!

I have come to the realisation that I need to get rid of our bathroom scales, that I need them out of the house and as far away from me as possible. Having them there in the bathroom makes them just too tempting to step on everytime I go in there in an attempt to…

Lemon, lime and coconut layered jelly
