Stay Ahead of the Curve

When I started this blog I did not have a child. Now I do. It is pretty expensive all the gear you need to buy them all the time because they are growing so fast! I had to get rain clothes and Wellington boots for now and on sale it's still quite expensive.. shop a-head when you can!! It is difficult to judge shoe sizes but clothes are pretty straight forward.

Take a stroll

In our busy life it can be easy to forget to stop and notice the amazing beauty of the world around us, to refresh yourself take a detour and stroll through a park. I did it yesterday and it was like a massage for my soul.


I am preparing a post on easy, inexpensive (free) home improvements when I came to a halt and sought an extra edge of inspiration, I done a quick search on 'cheap home ideas' to see if I had a new slant on some traditional fixes and look the first thing I found! Weird or what..?!

Simply delighted

MrA sent me a link to this today which describes alot what we have been talking about lately. Having a handsize home and thinking of what 'more' you would like, it can be easy to take for granted the great advantages of keeping things simple. Oh and I found a picture from one of picnics last year.. happy days.

I made some little peanut-butter easter eggs to take to easter lunch get-to-gether.. that I found on allrecipes. I'm a little excited to try these in other shapes now :)

All you need is:
  • 1 cup Peanut butter
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 ounces Chocolate for covering
  • decorations- icing sugar/cocoa etc
= aprox 30 lovely teaspoon size eggies

I was in bit of a hurry toward the end so the idea of 'neat' went out the window. I was quite impressed though with how they turned out in their rustic chocolatey handmade way.. as were our host's who thought I'd bought them- just I know better next time not to use peanut butter, not everyone is a fan!
