Earl Grey Scones
I have been on a little scone kick lately. I think because I managed to buy some clotted cream at Whole Foods so therefore had to make scones! I started off with some regular fruit scones, they were ok. Next came some Marmite and Cheese Scones (Hairy Bikers recipe via BBC Good Food Magazine), they […]
Simple Chocolate and Raspberry Cake
These days any sort of baking, making, and indeed crafting, takes place around children napping, in between wrangling children, or while they are distracted by Disney+ (best lockdown purchase, you the MVP!) But sometimes the baking takes place with children involved! And this is one of those ones. My daughter loves sprinkles, and chocolate, and […]
Pete the Cat Cake
Ok, so it seems like my posts are once a year right now. I guess I just haven’t been making anything particularly exciting these days, partially due to a lack of time, and part due to my ongoing wrist problems – Bah! Anyway, I thought I would share this wonderfully easy and tasty cake recipe, […]
Eric Carle, for those with limited artistic skill.
(I am just going to gloss over the long blogging absence, I have been making things, but they haven’t been exciting things and I had kind of lost my mojo) We all know I like to make things, but I don’t class myself as being particularly artistically skilled, and was way out of practice at […]
I made something!
….or should that be I completed something! Quite an extended break from blogging! The last few months have been a whirlwind! Baby girl arrived at the end of August, it took quite a few weeks before I was back to anywhere approaching normal – post C Section I had some pain while doing pretty much […]
VÄDRA changing mat cover
Nesting! We put together the furniture for the baby’s room last week (although she will probably sleep in our room for at least the first few months), just a fairly basic crib and changing table from IKEA, along with re-utilising some existing drawers that we have had for a while. To go with the changing […]
…and I keep getting bigger!
For the most part this pregnancy had resulted in not many changes to my everyday wardrobe as I don’t wear a lot of slim fitting clothing, other than having to switch to bottoms with elasticated waists from around 5 months. But friends, the time had come, my extensive collection of Scout tees and medium girlie […]
Watermelon Baby Cardigan
Am I on a knitting roll this week or what? Not only did I finish my baby blanket, but someone shared this pattern from Ravelry amongst my knitting group this week. Adorable no? I was pretty sure there was no way I would get around to knitting it in time (it is written for 0-3 […]
When we first found out we were expecting a baby, I decided that I wanted to knit something. Sure, I knew I was going to make oodles of baby bibs etc, but there is something nice about making something by hand. I decided on this little baby blanket, as I figured that even if it […]
“These sweatpants are all that fits me right now.”
Ok, not quite, but we had a wedding coming up to go to and I tried on all the dresses in my wardrobe that I owned and only one fit. Just. Baby Marsh is really starting to show! Anyway, it was very close, so I figured I needed a plan B. This is the same […]
