Time for Tea!

Have been a bit fed up of normal tea and coffee recently so have rediscovered Earl Grey.  I loved drinking it when we were in India and its nice to have something different!  I also love Clipper's packaging!

Have also been doing some cooking.  My first ever beef casserole which turned out well and a yummy cheese, onion and potato easy to make too!

Fairy Cakes!

I made some fairy cakes today.  Hadn't made any since my last baking disaster when the whole lot ended up in the bin! Thankfully the result was better this time and I got to use these cute cases that I bought ages ago in Morrisons.  The K L and M are not for the airline but our initials!

In other news, I have finished knitting the wrist warmers.  I'm very pleased with the finished product and even more so that they only took one ball of wool (pattern said two).  I will give them to a friend for her birthday.

I still have another ball of the same wool and will probably knit another pair for myself.
For my next project, I'm going to try a small knitted toy for Leo......just have to choose cat, dog or bunny!

Small things make you happy!

My Mum and I recently agreed that it's the small things in life that make you happy.  Here's what is making me happy just now:
Leo makes me happy every day!  At the moment he is so cute and smiley.  He has brought us so much joy in the 5 months he has been here so far.  His little cheeks are rosy at the moment, think his gums are giving him trouble.

I've been knitting some fingerless gloves from my knitty gritty book.  The wool is Debbie Bliss Rialto and is just gorgeous. I like small projects best!

I am also very glad that the snow is going and my bulbs are bringing a breath of spring!  I love the scent of hyacinths.

Happy New Blog!

Well it's a new year so thought I would have a go at blogging again.  I did have a blog before but I wasn't very good at keeping it up to date.
I'm aiming to do at least one post per month so that I'll have something to look back over at the end of the year.
Here's hoping that 2011 will be a good year for us all.
