My Simple Life..

These kids. I’m pretty damn lucky to have these fantastic boys in my life.

It’s almost noon and I’ve barely heard a peep from them for a few hours. Minecraft is like kiddy crack.

Every. Single. One. 

MILK LAST

Milk and teabag must never meet

So many of these are true.

That face, so cute. Looks so innocent but isn’t really :)

Oscar is 5 today. FIVE! I can’t believe it, time has flown. He’s currently being Leonardo, his favourite ninja turtle.

Nice face, zombie face.

Drunk and having fun. Merry Christmas all.

So I swore I was hanging up my baking apron after my last Ninja Turtle cake, but I couldn’t bear the look of disappointment on Oscar’s face if he didn’t get a similar cake for his 5th birthday. 

So here I am. Sweating and cursing over icing again.

I like to give Christmas gifts for the teachers in Owen’s & Oscar’s school. Last year I gave them little wooden decorations for their tree. The year before that was cupcakes. This year I’ve gone for coconut ice and ‘Hokey Pokey’ honeycomb. The smell of the honeycomb is amazing.

Me and my fantastic husband.

In January Ant set himself a target of cycling 5,000 miles over the year. Last month he was still about 300 miles down and it was looking doubtful he’d reach it.
However, being the kind of determined person he is, he powered on trying to meet his target. This morning, he’s just returned from what will probably be his last ride of 2013, and this ride has brought his total mileage to 5,018 :)
Well done Ant, am very proud of you, even if you do make me feel lazy ;)

Two kids parties in two days

Surely I deserve some kind of reward for this form of torture?

Two excited boys, ready to spend our Friday evening at a kids party. Hurrah.

I think I’m hanging up my baking apron after this. Cakes for other people is stressful.
