Good Afternoon - I had to go to an appointment this morning so I was off work for the day.  I've been promising for weeks that I would bake some biscuits and take them into work, so once I got home it was out with the mixing bowl and the butter and I set to work.  The recipe is from Jo Wheatley's cookbook - A Passion for Baking - (Jo won the 2011 series of the Great British Bake Off).  I loved that TV series and when Jo won - I cried - Mr Kitty came to bed and there was I sat up in bed sobbing - he thought I had some bad news !!!!!!! - Anyway I hadn't I was happy. Jo's blog can be found here at

Here is my attempt at Jo's Viennese biscuits

I hadn't realised Jo had a cook book out until a recent visit to the supermarket where by I re-enacted a scene very similar to that of one in The Railway Children - the one where Bobby goes to the station and when the smoke clears she sees her Daddy (I still cry when I see that bit of the film and I must have seen it about 30 times), anyway down the supermarket aisle I ran with my arms outstretched  - until I reached the bookstand.  it was only when I turned around that I realised people were staring at me !! Obviously they were thinking I didn't get out much.  Well the book has the most delicious recipes with lots of goodies to bake.

On another note we had some exciting news this morning TC has his first wobbly tooth - he was soooooooooo excited this morning you would have thought it was Christmas day tomorrow. LOL.

Thanks for stopping by

Saturated Canary Challenge

Good Morning

Well this week I've had time to visit quite a few blogs and have a look at everyone's beautiful creations and find a number of sites that I haven't visited before and get my paws on some new images. One of the blogs I have discovered is  The blog is created by Krista who draws some gorgeous images - the one I have used is called Ava.  TC is going to a party on Sunday so I have created this card for him to send to his little classmate.  I am entering this card into challenge number 19 at (well I will be doing if I can remember how to link my post)

I've really enjoyed being creative over the past couple of days - I hadn't made any cards for a while so it's been nice to get back into it. 

Well I'm going to hunt out my wellies and go outside and jump in a few puddles I think - there are enough of them (although not in the muddy ones like Peppa Pig -  LOL - it's too bad that TC is getting to old to watch Peppa - I still love it)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek

Diamond Jubilee in the eyes of a 6 year old.

Good Morning

I know it's been a week since we started the Jubilee celebrations but I thought I would share with you the picture that TC drew of the Queen.  I have promised him we can send it to the Palace - so we are off to the Post Office in a few minutes for a large letter Stamp.  He is very proud of his picture and his writing - and of course as his Mum I am too.  Although . . . . . . I'm not too sure about about those turquoise tights !!!

Thank's for stopping by to look at my post today. Have a nice weekend

A Quick Hello...............

......... from me while the boys are off swimming.  Well it's been ages since I last posted anything......practically the Golden Jubilee !!! Hope everyone's been enjoying the Jubilee celebrations.  I thought I would share with you my red, white and blue buntings that I have made for the Jubilee/ Olympics.  I got the pattern from the very talented Nicki Trench from her book Cute and Easy Crochet.  It's a great book with lots of beautiful ideas. You can find a link to her blog here

Happy New Year.......almost

Good Afternoon Everyone

Hope everyone has had an amazing Christmas. 

I can't believe another year has come and gone - the older you get the quicker the time passes.  Thought I would share with you a few of the calendars that I have made this week.  I thought we could send some out as thank you's for TC's Christmas presents and also a few to my friends as thank you's following the wonderful gifts I received for my 40th birthday recently.  Sorry about the quality of the photos - I can never get the light right in the house and it's pouring with rain outside so I can't go out there to take any photos. (Not that I'm complaining about the rain - it's better than the snow - so I'm happy to have poor quality photos if it means the snow stays away).  I have just realised that one of the calendars looks a bit creased so apologies for that also - Mum and Dad will have to have that one.

Anyway I babble - and that's before I have had a glass of my M&S Kia Royale-  that's chilling in the fridge as we speak.  Not sure that Mr Kitty and I will manage to stay awake to see in the new year (we haven't done for the past few years) we normally get woken up by all the fireworks that are let off - or the phone ringing (note to self - unplug phone !)  I know it sounds a bit miserable but I feel so much better for the early night and not staggering in at daft o'clock - I feel younger now than I did when I was 29 !!!!!!!!!!!!! Not to mention my poor feet - I dread to think how many times I walked home from the pub with no shoes on cos my big boots have started to hurt my feet.

So it will be a couple of games of junior monopoly for us and maybe even a game of bingo (can't you tell TC is at that age).  A glass of cava a couple of alpini chocolates and a fab night in with my boys - perfect :-)

Thanks for stopping by

Have a fabulous evening and happy 2012

Diamond Wedding

Good Afternoon, Just a quick post today as I have a list of things I need to so and the day seems to be going so quickly and my list isn't getting any shorter.  I have made this card for a friend's Dad who will be celebrating his Diamond Wedding Anniversary soon.

I have used the images from called TeddyBoBea tabs 001 I am also going to enter it into the challenge Clean and Simple over at / (well that's if I can remember how to link things to challenges it's been that long since I tried !!!!!).
