Surprise and crochet

On Thursday I came back from toddlers with the little man I look after to find postie had left me a parcel. The lovely Lynda had sent a parcel to help me with my crochet.

Thank you so much, i've watched the DVD and it's really helping with all the terms. The children also say thank you for the Kool Aid. They had some last night and thought it was yummy.

Talking of crochet, Im really coming on with my squares. None are the same size or shape, but that will come with practice!

Hope everyone has a lovely bank holiday weekend and thank you again Lynda it was very kind of you to send the parcel xx

Ice Cream and Crochet

We spent the weekend at the caravan with my mum and dad. Poor hubby had to work :(

We found a fantastic ice cream bar on our walk.

Would have been rude not to have stopped ;)

While we were sitting outside my mum attempted to teach me how to crochet. Something I did not know she could do!! I managed my 1st square to be told that it was not good enough and she unpicked it :( Im guessing it was tough love lol!! I then managed to do 2 more. Im home now and going to attempt to try without having mum on hand!!

Last night hubby said I could just eat some Millies cookies, but all the shops were shut so I googled for a recipe and this with what I made.

They taste just like Milllies and cost a fraction of the price.


125g butter, softened
100g light brown soft sugar
125g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g self-raising flour
200g chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.

2. Cream butter and sugars, add the egg and vanilla.

3. Sift in the flour, and add the chocolate chips.

4. Roll into walnut size balls

5. Place on ungreased baking paper. If you want to have the real Millies experience then bake for just 7 minutes, till the cookies are just setting - the cookies will be really doughy and delicious.

6. Take out of the oven and leave to harden for a minute before transferring to a wire cooling rack.

7. Enjoy!!

Birthday weekend.

Saturday was my sons birthday, he turned 8!

I have no idea were the last 8 years have gone. He had a day packed with seeing grandparents and his party. We went to SpyMasters, I could not fault them they did a fantastic job :)

For birthday breakfast we had egg on toast with hot chocolate. When josh had finished his hot choc he saw this. How perfect for the birthday boy :)

Cake was eaten

Last night we went out for a meal and the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to Josh which made him smile.
