Fabric Shopping! ;-)

 While R was at nursery today, KP and I set off to town.  I'm not sure how much she enjoyed it but I had a great time.  It's ages since I bought anything for myself so went to town today with a jacket, jumpers and tops.  I also paid a trip to the Cotton Print Factory Shop - I could have spent a fortune there!  I'm in the process of making curtains for the whole house (we have none at the moment) so was just in for a browse, but you can never just browse can you?

Chocolate and a walk by the loch

Hmmm, I think I may have a chocolate problem!  I bought a great wee book that shows you how to make your own chocolates.  So far we have made fudge, nut clusters and some truffles not bad for someone who usually buys a new book and then takes months to make anything!  Just had the last of the fudge, I had been eating it from the fridge, but just ate some at room temperature - much nicer.  Must make more....

Hi there, well, time to start my new blog, where to start and what to say!

I'm a stay at home mum to 2 wee girls.  I like crafting, cooking (baking, jams, drinks and sweets - none of your nutritious nonsense) and plan to have a great garden next year bursting with tasty treats.   This year we have mostly been growing weeds and large rocks.  My girls both love being outside and I love showing them the natural world about them and thought it might be nice to share this love with others and try to put some photos up of various things to look out for.

We stay fairly near Glasgow so have a nice mix of city and countryside to explore.  You sometimes see more wildlife in the city than here in the sticks.

So lets hope this blogging thing works out, someone takes an interest and I'm not just sitting here talking to myself ;-)

Bye for now
