Three Things I'm Looking Forward to in 2013

  1. Having a family of four.
  2. Learning the character and personality of our fourth family member!
  3. Getting to grips with entertaining two children whilst maintaining a tidy house, a nutritious and on-budget meal plan, social life, creative adventures, honest & vulnerable friendships, real marriage, meaningful bloggings and all other of life's responsibilities!

(and even more pictures to prove my lack of blogging over the last few months has not been unfruitful..)

Sticky Stem Ginger Cakes that I made for my family Christmas hampers.
Dark Chocolate & Stem Ginger Fudge - after many failed attempts at fudge I made this foolproof version which uses condensed milk - I'll post the recipe one day in 2013! It's got edible sparkle dust on top!
Inspired by Mister Maker from CBeebies who made a paper- mache pineapple using newspaper, foil and tissue paper; I decided to make my own baubles. I finished them on Christmas Eve!
Eben helped and made a tissue paper star.
Bauble No.1
Bauble No.2
Bauble No.3 and Eben's tissue paper star. 
Eben got some great colouring pens for his birthday, I limited him to red and green and he made all our wrapping paper!


  1. Found your blog today on Mumsnet- it's great! I am VERY new to blogging but have started 'homebird' if you get a wee chance, take a look :-)

    1. Thanks! I love love your blog, you're off to a great start! Mine is sort of unofficially on-hold while I figure out how to juggle two children and the rest of life!
