A very busy easter

Easter weekend, as usual, was four, glorious  days long. To top it off, M took an extra days holiday so we had five days together.
We ate out, Even had her first cinema experience, saw family, ate ice cream, went to parks, played crazy golf. But most of all, we did it together. It was lovely.

Bubble tea

On Tuesday I had my first experience of bubble tea. It was bizarre but I can't stop thinking about it!

The black pearl

Today was the first solar eclipse for 15 years. And just like 15 years ago (when I was a gawky 16 year old working in McDonald's)  it was cloudy. But this time the cloud actually helped.

It was a bit brighter than I Imagined....

I've recently finished a cardigan for my daughter. She chose the colour and the buttons (sparkly), but it became clear the closer to finishing I got, that this jumper was going to be incredibly bright...
Colour is Stylecraft Matador.

When rainy days require quick and easy ideas

I have a confession to make. I love aldi cake mixes. I know it isn't 'real' baking, but they're so handy to have in cupboard!  Today has been especially rainy so we whipped up a batch of ginger cakes with added grated carrot.

*not affiliated with aldi in any way.

Project fail

It's that time of year again, where I think how much I would love to do project life, then realise I have no money to buy anything.

I had to do it. I had to share my Christmas with you. I worked the nights of Christmas eve and Day, so my festivities were a little fragmented. But the important thing was that little lady got a Thomas from santa.
Lots of food was eaten,  tummies were full and laughs were had.
