Chocolate fudge brownies

We made chocolate fudge brownies!Now I am the first to admit when I bake it can be very hit and miss. I often find a recipe start by following it to the letter then get abit bored and do my own thing, this does not always have a good outcome. But the kids love it so we try and this week we made some brownies for the first time.  chocolate brownies  I know they don’t look all that great but presentation has never been my strong point trust me they taste sooooo much better than they look. So good… View Post

Sensory Play

  Yesterday afternoon me and Bella found ourselves with nothing to do, a rare moment when we were both feeling a little bit bored. We’d just dropped Maisy at nursery, Lottie was asleep and daddy was at work so we had no one to entertain us.   I had a rummage though the arts and crafts box which is a cardboard box on top of the fridge that currently consists of some dried out glue, paper plates and 3 pipe cleaners. Note to self – must stock up on some crafty bits. I know some crafty people could probably create something fantastic with this but I am… View Post

Lottie at 4 Months

My baby is 4 months old!It has gone soo fast I can hardly believe it, it feels like just 5 minutes ago I was counting down the days till my due date wandering when she would put in her appearance. This last 4 months have past in some what of a blur but even with the stresses of breast feeding, lack of sleep and trying to protect her from her sometimes heavy handed big sisters I have loved it. I truly forgot how small they are when she was first born she felt so fragile and even though she was my third for the first… View Post

Fun in the sun

Yesterday daddy had the day off work so we decided to go out for the day and have some fun in the sun!He works a lot of hours so getting a day when we can go and do something all together is great and we try and make the most of it. As it was another beautiful sunny day we took a trip down to Christchurch a pretty little town near us, with a beautiful coast and country side it makes a great day out for children. We spent the day around the playground as there’s a lovely big grassy area… View Post
