I though I had better get started and so yesterday while I waited for everyone to get ready to go out I mod podged my Ikea drawers ( another set to do yet )
then this morning, while the boys finished their breakfast before the school run ,I finished my skirt( forgot to take a piccie sorry but I'll post one later!) and then ,while I waited to take lucky mum to the airport, I got started on our advent calender.
I also baked yesterday which was sooo nice to do as I felt like I hadn't taken the time to enjoy that for weeks.Now in the pantry we have banana bread,Nigella chocolate cake and fantastic brownies.
These are from The River Cottage Family Cookbook which I have raved about before here.I have never really bothered to bake brownies since some disastrous attempts when I was younger but these were so easy and they are fudgy slabs of heaven.
And then in the post came this and I had forgotten all about it!!
Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to be the winner of April in a Marie Claire Idees magazine blogging competition and,although I didn't win the final,I did still win a years subscription to the magazine and an entry ticket to the craft show in Paris.Well mum has gone with the ticket and promised she will go to Paris and see the show and left me here to enjoy my christmas special.Perfect.
I have more of this ahead of me tonight happily too.Slowly growing!
Ok I had better go and get some kind of dinner thing happening before the starving hordes arrive home from swimming!!
