With Spring in our step!

This morning we woke up to a very misty day...but with the promise of sunshine on the weather forecast, we pulled on our hiking boots, plotted a walk on the ordnance survey map and headed out for the day. ...and what a beauty it turned out to be
We are lucky to live on the edge of the North York Moors, so we are spoilt for choice in walks and hikes. Today we decided to follow the river up through Falling Foss and Littlebeck.
...we had a great game of 'pooh sticks' on the bridge, but my little boy starting getting a little too ambitious with his choice of sticks!
Let's hope we don't revert back to any cold weather and spring is here to stay!
Till next time xx

A day of home baking and home making

We had one of those rare days at home today, where we could just potter and enjoy. I treasure these days in our otherwise hectic life. I warmed up the oven and got baking whilst my little boy had wonderful fun building a den in the living room, where the sun was streaming in.
...bread dough left to proof
...den built with Mummy's help
...shortbread cake
...tomato, onion and flat leaf parsley flat bread
...meringue with perfect amount of goo on the inside!
...a very wonky looking white loaf
...straight out the oven with lots of butter YUMMY
...the little man having fun with Alfie (his hippo made out of a sock, which is carried everwhere we go!) I even managed to have some hooky time today. I recieved this book through the post this week from the lovely Joanne at www.woolandbuttons.co.uk.
... I love it and is full of the colours of spring.
...this is one of the patterns from the book and is going to be my new project
And here's a couple of pictures to leave you with ....my garden coming back to life. Roll on Spring!
Till next time xx
