We have seriously had our best few family days for a long time last May day weekend, we have finally kicked the monotony of being inside a lot over Winter. In no particular order...
Bluebell walking in the woods
Laughing together - the sign says 'please close the gate' !!!
Teaching the girls the photography rule of three
The tooth fairy came - Little M has been waiting for so long for her first one at the age of seven and a half;she was the last one in her class.
Walking and training our dog, Bruce, who is now allowed out with other dogs and people.
Catching lambs and castrating rams with my Dad, it's not all fun!
Big Sis can catch them, sex them and put them in the right holding pen with me. Little M preferred to stay watching from the gallery.
Everyone has been eating well, without people complaining, I consider this a personal achievement. This is chocolate cake with melted easter eggs inside but stuffed pork, wild garlic pesto, asparagus, green beans, coconut milk rice pudding and more spicy food have all been eaten with gusto lately. Fennel was still met with a flat refusal!
It is made using our 'Cake in a Mug' One Mug gives us all a tablespoon each. It takes three minutes in the microwave and the girls can do them on their own (now). We have one each which we were given as gifts by our next door neighbour, they are all different recipes.
The girls went horse riding with some friends.
Other weekend highlights, I know there is more! Bloke and I went out for a meal followed by watching our friends band AND the childrne slept at my dads so we had a lie in, I made a few more squares for a crochet blanket and a fingerless glove with a grafted thumb. Phew!
You have to write all about them so you remember them
in the not so good times, which someone reminded me poignantly this week. Thanks Sarah. Jo xxx
