Project 365 week 48

Sunday

Love this time of the year, lots of shops sell this, yum yum yum.



I love this stuff


Monday

Had a moan about hubby eating the jelly from the trifle last week, the only bit I eat, so being the lovely man that he is he made me some potato scones while I was out.

Tuesday

Sharing this for those of you who might not have seen it. There has been a safety warning issues for Indesit, Creda and Hotpoint tumble dryers. Some of them can be a fire risk and need an adjustment. You can check here if yours is affected here.  Yes I deliberately blurred my serial number.



Wednesday

Went to meet up with a friend for a catch up and while there had a wander round the Christmas department, could have spent a fortune.

Thursday

Dinky is not very keen on being away from home without either mum or dad so normally when I babysit them I have them down there. But they were wanting to do some sorting out that they could not do with the twins around so I brought them up here. Apart from a few minutes of settling in she was fine. No tears or temper tantrums just four hours of fun. The two of them spent ages playing with a tea pot that sounds like it is pouring tea and pouring it into the cups and we all drunk it a few hundred times.

Friday

Bob decided he was staying over night. In the morning he had a couple of satsumas as part of his breakfast. After I had put it on the table for him and before he got to eat it Granddad had drawn a face on it and placed it back down on the table so Bob got a fright when he picked it up, and made us both laugh.


just what you expect to find


Saturday

Today is my birthday, the seventh one in four weeks, Thankfully no more now until February.
Daughter made me a cake and Bob spent an hour making a pooh bear that would sit up on my cake from fondant icing. He told me that I taught him well. The rewards are worth the training.

    1. It is nice that my skills are passed on, I feel home baking. well any type of cooking from scratch, is not as common as it was and I feel we need to teach them while they are young so it is considered normal every day.
