I thought I’d share some photos from the last few days…
Spring has indeed graced us with her presence… today we’ve had sun, rain, wind, and weather so hot Ive had to strip off, only to find it so cool a few minutes later I’m reaching for my sweater! On the bright side, this blossom on our Golden Queen peach tree is breathtaking. For my birthday I received a cake pop baking pan so the children and I took it for a test run. Before this weekend we’d never had cake pops, but I’m sure we will be having them again soon!I seemed to spend a lot of time in the kitchen over the last two days. These two shots are of my kitchen windowsill, and just outside my ‘pet’ dragonfly. The stock and freesias smell lovely!!Maia’s class topic for the term is ‘pay it forward’ so they are decorating bags which they will fill with games and activities they’ve made themselves and will give to Starship children’s hospital. Guess who spent the weekend cutting and sewing 25 bags?Some children watch TV… here are mine watching ‘muffin TV’! They’re not so patiently waiting for strawberry muffins to cook for dessert. We used this recipe (I’d recommend you try it!!). Carter has just got a spinning top which he is loving. So simple, but so much fun.What to do with all those empty jars?
Fill them with orange, lemon and ginger marmalade and plum jam (the plums were frozen last summer). I’m sure Ill be making these yummy treats again soon now my marmalade stock is replenished! Fresh plum jam and homemade yoghurt. Is there anything nicer?Finally check these crochet cats out. They are made using my Caity Cat crochet pattern… aren’t they just awesome?
Ok that’s all for now, back soon, hopefully with a finished project to show! Have a happy week! Love Janette xx
