We spent our days with friends, making things, cooking, tidying bedrooms (this was not so much fun but needed doing!) they played imaginary games for hours and it was so lovely to listen to them and not have to stop them to do something or go somewhere, precious times.
Here's a sample of their baking (all gluten free of course!)
I did get into trouble for breaking the chick biscuit when I re-arranged them for the photo, that's gluten free baking for you!
I am also grateful to Jooles over on her blog for this delicious recipe for Raspberry and Marzipan muffins. They really are very good and I was unable to resist!
The fabulous combination of the tartness of the raspberries combined with the sweetness of the marzipan and the surprising hint of cardamon is genius! Needless to say there were very few left when I took them into work for a leaving do, thanks Jooles!
So bring on the summer term, my eldest Whitething's last in primary school, two Messy Church events to organise, the allotment to plant up, the dining room ceiling to pull down, a community Jubilee event to help pull together, a couple of craft fayre's and lots more! Phew! Need to focus! And at some point I really want to learn how to crochet as it's still beating me!
Meanwhile I'd settle for a dry school run! Hope you're having a good day!
