In my last blog post I told you all about my attempt to spring clean and off load ALOT of clothes. In the absence of any blogging this week, I thought I would sneak in a crafty cup of tea whilst Hubby and Baby B have quiet time and catch you up on what I have been up to in the last week or so.
Before the crazy washer woman days of Thursday and Friday I did update my twitter feed with a couple of crafty bits. I made a 'postbox' for Baby B which was a five minute jobby as he is learning all about the post man and sending and receiving letters. He loves to 'post' things.I also posted a picture of my blanket progress. You can see here I have started the cycle of colours again but I haven't had much time to crochet this week so the second picture shows where we are at now.
On the baking/food making front last week, the boys and I made some Rice Krispie cakes and I attempted another not so successful trifle. On Friday night, I hosted a make your own pizza night. The dough, I have resolved, was so good it rose out of the bowl, over the sides and down though the oven racks (as that was where it was resting). Luckily, I managed to save enough and make a good enough tomato base and with a mixture of toppings from our stores and our guests, we got four pretty good pizzas. Followed of course by another bake from me. An apple and rhubarb oat crumble. Not my best efforts but it went down ok.
I fully intend to spend tonight and tomorrow recovering before a weekend spent browsing Cambridge Garden Show on Saturday and probably more clearing out on Sunday.
For now, I might go eat some chocolate and crochet some blanky :-)
