These two monkeys did it all on their own with a little guidance here and there. It is a super quick recipe to throw together and the end results are pretty good, so I am told. This weeks bake was the full dairy and gluten monty and to be honest I think my waistline is rather grateful.
This Wednesday we celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary for which I did a simple, but wonderful 'Old Fashioned Chicken Pie', from the Country Cookbook. We had a meal as a family, like we do every night, but it was special, because eight years down the line our love has grown beyond anything we could possibly ever have imagined and I feel so incredibly blessed to have found my soul mate, my best friend, the love of my life and the most amazing father to our children. We didn't want to celebrate without the kids as they are now part of the bond and that makes it even more special. I filled a jug with the last of our blooms from the garden and I even had a very small drop of wine, something I very rarely do these days and it sure was fun.
This morning the kids had their hair cut and we enjoyed a lovely lunch out and then spent the rest of the afternoon doing a little drawing and playing. It's so lovely to have them home and I think they are loving staying in their pj's and being able to unwind.
This fab parcel arrived today and I can't wait to start working up a few projects from this lovely new yarn. Unfortunately I haven't done much hooking or stitching this week and suspect this pattern will continue till after the school holidays. For now it is reserving energy to spend with the kids.
Our weekend is looking rather busy, but in a good way, spending time with some friends and a few birthday parties for the kids. What do you all have planned this weekend?? Thank you for all your lovely comments on my fairy and also a warm welcome to my new followers.
