Pitter Patter Raindrops

Waking up this morning to the sound of rain on the roof makes me thankful for my warm cozy bed! I opted to not send Matthew to kindy and avoid Luke's musical group and stay in for a nice relaxing morning with the boys.

We made up a play tent with the ironing board (seen I don't use it for anything else :)

And while they played nicely, I started the second recipe in my week of Baking for the National Bellyful Cake Stall day, which will be at Christchurch Girls high 10am at the Christmas Encraftment Market

This is a really simple recipe but I fancied it up slightly by making them in my mini cheesecake tin.

100g butter & 3 tablespoons of golden syrup and 2 tablespoons cocoa (melted in the microwave)
200g of digestives broken up and 50g raisins 

Mix the two together and cover with melted chocolate and refrigerate

While the boys then played with Legos in the Sew Pretty room

I managed to put up some new fabrics

and start some mini bunting inspired by Max at our Seceret Santa swap

Now that I have started typing things up it definitely makes my day feel like I have accomplished far more than I thought! Thank you to the inspiring CHCH bloggers who have got me going on this blog!


  1. Not surprised that you were inspired by Max's bunting... it was GORGEOUS wasn't it!!
    Good to see you getting back into your blogging :-)

  2. Thanks Juliet, I need to do a post on my fabulous jewellery roll as soon as I have filled it up. Might need a few more diamonds for Christmas :)
