We haven’t had yoghurt for ages in my house.  Mainly because the thermos I used to make yoghurt broke (read more here).  I was going to buy a new thermos because although I am buying nothing new, I have allowed myself to buy reusables (read all about my challenge here).  Luckily before I rushed out to buy
