Jack's first go at baking


Polar Bears!

He's growing up fast my eldest boy! I've been doing a fair bit of baking lately, and this time he wanted to know what mummy was doing. The familiar call of "Jack too!" as I wandered into the kitchen swayed me. "Come on then," I sighed with a smile and pulled up the foot stool so he could reach the counter top.

He dusted my baking sheets with flour - loving the clouds he made when he clapped his hands. He had a go at using the rolling pin too. But the best bit was cutting out the shapes!

I let him choose which shapes we were going to have. I'd made enough dough for 3 dozen cookies so there was plenty to play with. He chose the boy, girl and teddy bear cutters for the first batch. Fior the rest he wanted stars (I have 3 styles of star and he likes sets of things). He did really well at cutting the shapes too. We don't have any play-doh or plastercine for him so he's not cut shapes before. He did great. Although he did eat rather a lot of raw dough....

Goes without saying I suppose! :oD

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
