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...............

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.
