Look what we made earlier in the week. I haven't made or eaten a Jam tart for a long time and when we got home from school the other afternoon I just fancied making something edible with Joshua, it made a chamge from little iced cakes which is usually our quick make. And they were yummy!!!!!

This week has finally started to feel like spring. There are signs of life in the garden. The washing has actually dried on the line. The sun has been out a bit more - it makes everything so much better when the sun is out, apart from the fact that it shows all the dust and just how dirty my windows are. We even have seedlings coming up in the propagator. Roll on more bright and warm weather.

This morning as it was the last day of half term with just the two of us we decided to go and see the Lego Movie. I did wonder if I would be totally bored but it was very good (unlike some of the other films we have been to see). I found I kept trying to spot the lego figures we have and Joshua is all inspired to make his own city now! Not sure we have quite enough bricks for it all but we have quite a few so he can make a start on it. It is interesting all the boxes of lego he had for his birthday have almost all been made into something other than what the instructions suggest - lego is very good for working the imagination.
This weekend we shall try and do some things that are more outdoors unless the weather is really bad! And no doubt at some point make cake.
Think I am going to really miss a little someone next week when he goes back to school. Roll on another 6 weeks and it will be the Easter holidays.

I don't know why I choose this picture but I did. They are some brooches/badges I make for birthdays.
It is so so long since I last blogged, I just haven't known what to say.
Little one has settled into school which is good but is very tired which is not so good.
The weather is awful so I have had quite a bit of time to get some knitting done. I also recently signed up to run a half marathon and am raising money for Send A Cow charity so putting in the training has been hard in the conditions recently. It seems fine once I got out of door but it is that getting out of the door that is hard.
I do hope the weather improves soon. I am fed up of constantly getting wet.

Happy Christmas to any one still reading my blog. I hope to update it a little more often next year when I hope to have a little more time now we have finally got into a routine as regards school. Sorry not much really to blog about recently - have just been trying to get all my Christmas knitting out of the way which has now been done. Finished Little one's sweater this morning. Tried it on and fits him so well. What a pleased mummy as I had thought about frogging it at several points but I think it looks ok. Sorry not a very good picture but the light is dreadful today - storms battering the UK.
Anyway hope you all have a lovely Christmas and have a restful time to spend with family and loved ones.

Haven't been on here much recently. Life has just seemed a little too busy and I just didn't know what to write on here. Have also been busy working on a fairisle knitting commission recently which took up quite a bit of my time. But that is now finished and I am able to get started on some of my Christmas presents. (The pictures of which will have to be posted later, just in case someone happens to read this, don't want to give away the surprise.)
