I made up a batch of plain biscuits this morning and the smallest child managed to fill in about three hours painstakingly decorating each one. Why hadn't I thought of this school holiday activity before? It worked a treat and she was so happy with her apron, chair, sprinkles and moth cookie-cutter.
The quiet morning gave me a window of time to reoganise some sewing stuff, in particular my embroidery threads which were in a tangle at the bottom of a box. So it was a happy morning for both of us. And what is more cheerful than multicoloured nasurtiums from the garden?
Thanks for your very kind and welcoming messages yesterday. I'm looking forward to this new year too. Have a great weekend- I'll see you back here again next week.
