Makeover ideas!

This is my dolls house from when I was a little girl. It's been a bit abused over the years and is missing a few windows and the inside looks quite sad. Leo has taken an interest in it recently-Mostly moving cars up and down the stairs!! So I think it needs spruced up a bit. Any ideas?
Here are the before pics!

This and that...

I've been busy doing a bit of this and that....

-A big clearout of china- too much pink in this house! I've been replacing with some lovely greens and blues!

-Some batch cooking. I have 3 veggie shepherds pies in the freezer now.

- making a Christmas pudding!

- walking in the rain with my massive buggy and 2 flat tyres in one week. Not fun :(

- having cuddles with my babies!

What have you been up to lately?

Homemade Mincemeat

I've been oh so busy doing all sorts of things round here so sorry that I've not been in blogland!
One of the things I did get round to was making my own mincemeat. I've never made any before but fancied giving it a try after my mum made some last year and it was yummy!
I used a recipe from the good food website and my mum leant my a huge bowl that belonged to my Grandma to do the mixing.
It's sitting maturing in the jars just now. Looking forward to trying it. Mmm mince pies and mulled wine. Can't wait!!

Christmas Preparations

Ooh I'm so excited about Christmas this year. I hope that my little family will have a lovely time. Leo still has no idea about Christmas but knows about toys and presents so think it will be lovely!
As well as mincemeat I've made a Christmas cake for the first time ever. It looks good, so hopefully it wi taste good too!
I've also made some little gift tags and have been experimenting with a Lino printing set to make a few cards.
Lots more on my list o Christmassy things to make and do but plenty of time yet!
What have you got planned for Christmas?
