Guess what?

All in all the weekend was good, it had a rocky start but it eventually turned out quite well. I had some fun playing with the children and lots of things got made, we even managed a trip to the pictures and a meal out which was such a treat. The film we went to see was The Water Horse, I thought it excellent, my little one jumped in his chair a few times but ended up happily clapping at the happy ending whilst his popcorn flew across the seat!!! I even felt a little tear run down my cheek at one stage. Even the trip to my Moms went well, with some time spent with family as my brother also popped over for a while. SO guess what I have been doing lately? I seem to have found the time to do a little cooking and baking over the last few days...I have made a couple of meals for the children, nothing odd in this...I do it everyday, only this was food they have not eaten before...they have now called me 'Their Little Chief' so I guess that was a success. As for the baking, how I like to bake when I have the time...There is nothing like the smell of cakes cooling under a fresh tea towel to make the house feel like a welcoming home...
A whole heap of cup cakes to go in the freezer to be pulled out when I need a sweet treat for an unexpected guest or two...The Raspberry cake, well that got cut into whilst warm with a nice cup of afternoon tea...it all stops for a cuppa here!!!
So with the making vibe well and truly in full throw at the the moment I have been working on some little projects...I had made a keyring with some of the lovely felt I have...This was then commented on very favourably and has now prompted a little production line of them in a range of colours...
SNEAKY PEEK TIME....I am thinking Swaps, Easter and Spring...
Enough said...How I want to show and tell...only that would spoil the surprise...

Love the raspberry cake, I don't do nearly enough baking. You have inspired me to start again and create those lovely warm memories for my children of coming home to fresh baked goodies! Can't wait to see more of that very pretty sneak peek :-)
