*Love* Cupcakes

Yesterday my son had cooking at school, they were going to make Pineapple Upside Down Cake. We measured out the ingredients the night before, all ready for him to take to school in the morning but both he and I forgot about the butter in the fridge! He went ahead and baked without telling the teacher about the missing butter (smart kid!) The end result looked very good despite being a little hard and flat. When he got home, feeling disappointed with his flopped cake (I know that feeling well!) he decided to bake cupcakes.

A few weeks ago I bought these lovely baking cases and edible heart sprinkles, planning to use them on Valentine's Day.

Knowing that my shares were down, there was only one way to save the day...

Footprints in the Snow

I am pleased to report that the snow has now all melted and life has returned to normal. Before the snow melted I noticed these prints in the snow

I wonder who they belong to???

Aah, could this be the culprit?

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone - it's been a while since I last posted. I hope you had a good Christmas and are ready to face the year ahead.

Life in the UK has slowed down somewhat after the deluge of snow we received earlier in the week. The children had one day back at school and then schools were closed for the rest of the week - much to the delight of my kids.

The neighborhood kids made this fine fellow

The view up my road - what road??

The sun was out today and some snow managed to melt despite the low temperature. I noticed these on a neighbors house
