Brrrrrr - yes its still cold here in Suffolk and yes there's still some of that blooming white stuff on the ground and as I type some more is trying to fall!
Its been my first proper week at being a SAHM as last week never really got going with the boys only doing a day and a half at school!
The birthday cake from the previous post was well received - thanks for all your comments too. Think I've started something as its little sons birthday at the weekend & he's hinted he'd like something Mummy made too. When he was out the other night big son & I snuck into his room and hunted down lots of things to decorate this cake with - will reveal all at the weekend when it gets made ;)
One of the biggest tasks of the week (apart from the domestic chores) has been keeping warm - much to MrVV's amusement I've often gone for the warm rather than stylish option!! However one recent purchase is both warm & stylish and will probably not leave my body until the temperature again returns to double figures!
The other warming option other than copious mugs of tea is soup - think we've had soup of one flavour or another nearly everyday for lunch - I'm getting the hang of making it from whatever leftover veg we have in the baskets & fridge;
(carrot & parsnip)
The other thing I've taken on board this week from other blogs is 20 minutes of crafting a day :) This has meant that the knitted dishcloth is finished (just need to learn to cast off at S&B tonight) and I've ticked the first item off my making list - birthday bunting;
Off to hide the ginger biscuits I've made for S&B group before the boys get home from school ;)
See you later in the week
