Well this past weekend has been really exciting! Last week was my daughter's birthday - 6th :). We took her to Birmingham last weekend to the Christmas markets and to treat her. It was great, she chose her present really carefully and decided upon Disney's Frozen princess castle which was really good for the money - we had seen another one that was well over a hundred pounds and quite frankly, it wasn't great. It didn't contain any of the Frozen characters and was just an empty shell! The Christmas market was amazing! All the sights and smells - the mulled wine smelt lovely :) There were some really unusual present ideas, jewellery, ornaments, food... so we walked round there and then visited Waterstones.. Wow that was a brill shop, it looked like it used to be an old church so was amazing when you first walked in and saw the impressive spiral staircase! It had a fantastic choice of books too, ha ha!

Did anybody watch Jamie Oliver's money saving meal ideas a couple of days ago? Well I did and thought it was great... it inspired me to make this quick and easy dish.. Just trying to load the link and am having problems so I'll tell you where to find it .... It's Jamie Oliver's money saving ideas website and the recipe is Hungover Noodles so yum :) Thought I'd share with you as I thoroughly recommend trying it, it was sooo tasty and different :) TTFN

Just thought I'd introduce you to a new country character.... she's a miniature version of the original Milford Mouse :) ... she's available now in my shop (top right hand corner of blog) catch her before she's scuttles off to a new home!!
We had a lovely break, mainly staying home due to the heavy deluge of rain we kept getting. We did loads of crafts including DD painting models ... love her colour choice :)

Well, the Easter holidays whizzed by in a blur!!! Great fun with a nice mix of family time and trips out. We went to Hassop Station one day for a nice cake and walk, which we discovered a new walking route and path heading back towards Bakewell. Then Easter weekend we had OH parent's come to visit and we went out for a long walk up the hills with our dogs, then out for a nice meal to our local pub. Easter Sunday was spent with my mum and dad round for lunch and tea. We had lamb joint with all the trimmings and blackberry cheesecake, yum :) A big special day out was then planned where we went to...... Warwick Castle! It was a lovely day very nice and sunny and we could spend a relaxed amble exploring the castle and up the 520 steep steps to the top of the castle, they were very windy spiral ones...

Well we went to the NEC Hobbycrafts exhibition in March and it was so great. DD took part in a Jumping Clay workshop and made an Easter Bunny, she did so well and the man who showed her what to do was so great with all the kids and explained things so well...
