Cinderella Will go to the Ball

Here is April trying out my new "clippety cloppity" shoes just before bed.



Veggie Box Day

We had a lovely Veggie box come this morning. The children get very excited - which is surprising as I can't get either of them to eat anything from it!! Noel tried some raw brocolli and he ate a raw mushroom, but April just laughed when I asked her what she would like to try!

Noel felt inspired to take a photo, so here is his handiwork

Whats more fun than a box?!

Noel and April have had hours of fun playing in this box or rather "fire train". It has a pump, wheels, dial and fire and coal out of the back. They had lots of fun making it with my mum!!

Sunshine and Smiles

Noel and April were pretending to be in bed this morning - the towels were their beds with cushions for pillows. Here they are reading a "bedtime" story
This is a "sunshine" picture by Noel. We had a lot of fun with the chalks although I'm not sure whether there was more on the patio or on the childrens clothes!!

Cosy Fun

After a morning outside in the snow, we decided to come in and do some baking. We made an orange cake (which looks pale as its upside down on the rack) and some almond biscuits. We cut up the cake into fingers and drizzled lemon icing over the top, yummy.

The children also enjoyed playing this curious game, which involved walking around the house under a blanket. A bit like a poormans pantomine horse I think!!



Sledging Fun!!

My lovely friend Rachel kindly gave us a sledge on Thursday and we have had a great deal of fun on it - thanks R XX

2 of my favourite things from 2 of my favourite people

Well its my lucky day today. I have received not one, but 2 fabulous presents!!

The first came in the shape of a wonderful wipes holder - all the way from America. Anything with cupcakes gets my vote - thank you Phil - so thoughtful and kind of you, how I miss you xx

My second fabulous gift came from my other "little" brother James, this gorgeous Snowman mug. Thanks James for the thoughtful gesture, I can't wait to see you sunday xx

Baking and snowy fun

While we waited for the snow to stop this morning we made some muffins and fairy cakes to deliver to 2 very good friends who have been really kind to us. Once they were ready and decorated we wrapped up warm and went to deliver them before going in the garden for some snowy fun.
