Busy little bees!

We got up late today. Well late for us, it was 8am. We decided it would be a day at home. I offered a choice of papier mache, some glue and sticking or cooking. Little guy wanted to do some cooking. We did lots!

Put the oven on then…

We made some gingerbread mixture for some biscuits and left it to cool.  Then made some fairy cakes whilst the gingerbread mixture was cooling.

Thats right, that is where we will try to get the mixture!

January08.2 005 Shove it all in there then mix it up…

January08.2 006 Little man mixed for a bit then I took over. All hands on deck to get the mix into those cases. There seemd to be…

hands all over the place… January08.2 009

January08.2 010 but it went into the cases and with a bit of fingerlicking going on, into the oven. January08.2 011 January08.2 012Time to roll out that gingerbread…

We cut it all out got it onto the tray and into the oven. Jobs a good ‘un.

Little guy went off to play so I thought not having quite such a sweet tooth I would make some scones. A couple to eat and the rest can go into the freezer with some of the fairy cakes for ron.

Who exactly is ron? Lateron of course! Bad joke, never mind…….If you don’t get it-just forget it! (So they say on SpacePirates anyway)

The cakes have sunk a little but not to worry, they are ok on the inside, just fill the dip with icing and who will notice anyway? It’s a shame it wasn’t easter we could have made them into little nests and pretended that was supposed to happen. It would be just our luck to make them at easter and have them exploding out of their paper cases!

After a mass tidy up and some lunch it’s time for us to take a walk to get rid of all that cake mixture!

Little guy on his bike, the dog and me following with a camera! We sang all the way along the canalside. It’s ok there is nobody listening, or so I thought. I saw a man crouched down, mending a puncture in the tyre of his bike just around the corner. I wonder what he was thinking!
