Apologies ….

Hi Everyone

I am sorry for lack of posts recently it’s just that I have been so busy past couple of weeks.

2 weeks ago my Goddaughter and her husband surprised me with a lovely day out which resulted in going to their 3D /4D baby scan of their 2nd baby, lunch and then went to London to watch Tennis. Had a brilliant day out and seeing their Little One on a scan was unreal and even more excited to meet the Little One.

It’s so amazing what they can see now with a scan and makes you wonder what they can in the future.

Last weekend I went out with a friend Christmas shopping. Was a lovely day out but came back bit empty handed, which was expected as I already have most presents. Just struggling to get parents theirs, I mean what do you get parents who simply just say ” a card will do ” ? and have all what they want ??

Next Monday me and my mum are off on our annual concert to see our fab boys The Overtones. No doubt I will be aching the next day as they do put on a brilliant show and you are up on your feet soon as they appear on stage until you go home.

So today i have nothing to do so quite looking forward to a day of relaxing and crafting … Yay ! and trying out my new fab dies…. To be honest I got a bit fed up with a company who sells these so i made mental note not to buy from them again. Anyway enough of that.

To my friend across the pond I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Also hope everyone is remaining calm with Christmas season upon us and not running about like a headless chicken.

Before I forget.. Thankyou to Jessica for your kind words I do appreciate them 🙂

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing 🙂

Halloween Fun with my Godson

A slightly different post to the crafting or baking posts that I normally do …

My gorgeous godson is now at the age where he can really get stuck in with crafts and enjoy them.

So yesterday we had great fun making Halloween bats, pumpkins and marshmallows pops.

All so easy to do and did not cost a fortune but main thing was we had FUN and created  happy memories.

The marshmallow pops was very simple ( and much easier than the dreaded cake pops ), I found this via a blog so I will not take credit for this activity, and so easy to do. :- simply cut small hole in marshmallow, insert stick, put in freezer for 5 minutes to help set, melt chocolate then dip in the marshmallow and  add sprinkles.

The bat and pumpkin craft was simply draw outline and let my godson loose with glue ( pritt stick ) and tissue paper. The finished result is now proudly on mum & dads fridge.

Happy Halloween Everyone
