I really need to update this blog more often! It's been ages since I last wrote and such a lot has happened! The main thing being, is I am now a mother of a TODDLER! Yes, my baby boy turned two 11 days ago and is now legally allowed to throw tantrums.
Ok so as we're on the subject, I guess that is where we start- with his birthday. I tried to make him a cake- well, the 'making' part was fine. Apple muffins, blueberry muffins and carrot cake. All yummy. But the icing- urgh! I bought pre-made frosting, much to the disgust of my aunt who decorates cakes beautifully. But I am not my aunt. I then tried to colour it. The more colouring I put in, the more watery it got. So I added icing sugar. And it got paler. See the dilemma? Then when I put the icing on, it just sank into the cake and dripped off. It had been so absorbed that the following morning you could hardly tell there was icing on it. I rescued the carrot cake by just putting on the frosting which went down well with Liam.He even shares!
Then I got this from Jude, . It's part of the Spring Swap that Clasheen was running. The scarf is a Nuro felted scarf and is the softest thing I have ever owned! It's a craft I have never tried but once the house is done I might give it a go. I've also got some intriguing looking chocolate, a lovely broach which is now on my jacket and a cute stuffed heart as well as the lovely deckchair fabric.
I did get a couple of parcels in the post just as I was leaving for work this morning. I had to run for the train so I have put them up high where Liam can't reach them as he has a habit of running off and hiding things before I can take a picture and admire my goodies!
So my swaps are nearly at an end...I've just got a few more bits and pieces to do then they'll hopefully go off in the post on Saturday. I've promised Ricky no more swaps until our house is done as I have a list of things to make for us! He's such a party pooper but he does speak the truth!
