The calm before the (snow)storm...!!

I'm a bit late posting these pics, but in between hanging out lots of soggy clothes to dry, trying to conquer the washing pile, pandering to the every whim of 3 little ones who are off school / nursery (again), and contemplating my orders, I'm also trying to get the hang of this blogging lark!!

This was Monday...

The little people had SO much fun..

As did a certain Big one...


There's loads more snow forecast for us apparantly... Have to say I'm loving it!!

Keep warm, xxx S

Butterflies...

Yesterday we spent a lovely (but bitterly cold) afternoon at RHS Wisley. They have Butterflies in the glasshouse there at the moment and it was wonderful to walk amongst the beautiful plants spotting butterflies.
As usual a certain amount of goofing around too...

A very creative weekend...

Yesterday was rather a crazy day here, with lovely visitors, so thought I would let you know what we have been up to...

Friday was an inset day for the eldest, so after a quick (?) trip to Ikea and the supermarket, it was time for some baking... Cheese & chilli scones, toffee & choc chip muffins and (the best) chocolate cheesecake (ever). The recipe was courtesy of Meridian Ariel's blog and it was truly scrumptious!!!


Saturday morning was the usual rush with little people's football and gymnastics, then time for lunch (parsnip & chorizo soup courtesy of Thrifty Mrs Blog - really yum!) and more choc cheesecake - double yum!!

Our friends recently had a baby girl, and I was lucky to witness her arrival into the world as I also did when her sister was born, so after lunch it was time for some special presents...

A sleepsuit with her name, a buggy blanket and a giant playmat that will be a snuggle blanket when she is older...
Better sign off now as dinner almost ready, more tomorrow with todays outing...
