Happy Valentine’s Day

Posted on

Happy Valentine’s day everbody!

I baked my husband an oversized heart cookie and surprised him with it this morning when he was outside digging, hard at work.

We had our second ever date in a Mexican restaurant which is still a favourite of ours so I’m making chilli beef nachos with salsa, guacamole & soured cream for dinner tonight.

Oh, and here are some of the little versions of his big heart biscuit. They’re rather scrummy, and ‘T’ approves too 🙂

sending lots of love xx


In the Christmas stocking……….

Posted on

I’m such a believer in children having good quality toys that are chosen for the right reasons. I’m also a strong believer of not going over the top with toys for children at Christmas for a number of reasons (but then that’s a whole other blog post!) So I have carefully thought about the toys that ‘T’ will be getting this year.

She will hang her stocking at the end of her bed on Christmas Eve and Father Christmas will deliver the following: (so his elves have told me)

  • Ostheimer owl
  • Ostheimer stag
  • Ostheimer doe
  • Ostheimer chicken
  • Ostheimer hedgehog
  • Ostheimer cockerel
  • Lyra ferby pencils
  • Mini Maisy Mouse Christmas book
  • Wooden ladybird necklace and bracelet
  • A torch
  • Belle and Boo tin
  • Belle and boo cookie cutter
  • A tub of play doh
  • Some slipper socks
  • Miniature Cath Kidston bag
  • Chocolate coins (T’s first ever bit of chocolate!!!!!)

I can’t wait to snuggle up in our bed on Christmas morning and watch ‘T’ as she unwraps her presents. Apart from the stocking she also has a wooden tool box to keep all of her art things in and a play-frame and some silks, but we’ll save them for after her lunchtime nap. It’s going to be a busy and fun-packed day. (YEY!)
