Of Warmer Days and Sunshine

We have been blessed with quite a few days of glorious sunshine, it has been so warm and lovely. It feels like summer came early this year. Oh, how lucky did we get!

This feels like a sneak peek for a great summer ahead with the kiddo. There’s plenty to do when the sun comes out to play. Even lounging about in the garden for 30 minutes feels like a ‘mini holiday’.

It has to be a different selection of toys and books every time to entertain her so that I can drink my cup of tea in peace or hang a load of laundry. Ps. my laundry basket is in a great state at the moment due to the wonderful ‘drying’ weather.

I love it when the kitties get to lounge about with us outdoors too.

Little one’s selection, Sophie’s Lift The Flap book, a little tub of bubbles and her current favourite, a case of Play Doh. They are mini tubs but they are perfect as an introductory set. We don’t actually have to play with the ‘doh’ most of the time, she keeps herself very very very busy by building towers and fitting them back in their case.

Spotted … enjoying a good old fig roll whilst the tabby looks on probably longing for a cheeky nibble.

Ps. I wanted to share that we found SPARKLING Play-Doh.

They definitely did not have any glittery ones when I was young. Haha. It does pay to shop around too as its a fiver in John Lewis.

Christmas in August?

Yes yes, it is very early but we HAVE to start early as it just gets exceptionally manic closer to Christmas and my baby is due in November. We will just have to be extra organised this year to avoid dissapointing you 😉 We have released our new Xmas Combo mould and have posted loads out to you already.

Introducing our new Xmas Combo mould available on HERE. This is a fab buy for £3.99 just because there’s so many designs on a mould. Santa, snowman, stocking, Xmas tree, candy cane and gift or parcel.

Xmas Combo Mould

They are really easy to use. Here’s proof 🙂 We carefully spooned melted choc in the cavities. This can get really messy. Imagine choc all over the mould. Not to fret, I used a little teaspoon and my fingers to clean up the sides haha! Some people prefer piping the chocolate in. Remember to tap the mould gently to release air bubbles. Tempting to overfill the cavities but just don’t 😀 Oh yes, any chocolate will work. I just melt mine in the microwave and they always turn out shiny like this. You can read up on chocolate tempering tips online too.

Xmas Combo Mould

I popped the whole mould in the fridge for 10 minutes and then popped them out with ease. All details of the mould captured. These sizes are perfect! Great on top of festive cupcakes with a beautiful icing.

Close up picture of the chocs! Enjoy.
