The secret to younger looking skin…funny the big beauty brands never tried this one

First, drink some chocolate milk, but make sure that as much as possible get’s all over your face, your upper lip and chin especially.

Then you rub some snot from your nose all over your face and let it dry in – it should leave a kind of slug-like trail across your cheek, and may even spread up to your eye lid. and eye-lashes.

Finally, you refuse to let your mum blow your nose or wipe your face, consequently you’ll have that perfect mix of slightly dried in chocolate milk and solidified snot that gives you that perfect “my skin is 3 years old” look….

Ahhhh, you’re gorgeous!
(I’ll attach a picture when I can stop laughing enough to upload it from my BB).

Been trying to weave, but we’ve been christmas shopping (ARRRGGGHHH), going to the swimming pool (good fun), going out for chocolate milk (and facial snot mixing).

Weaving magic and cooking up a storm…and Hallowe’en too

So we’re at the end of my 4 day weekend and although I didn’t get as much weaving done asĀ  I would have liked, I did get some done. I also spent 2 hours a day in the park, about an hour and a half a day walking around the city (listening to all kinds of comments from Hannah), and cooking.

So, the park – we have a park 30 seconds from the apartment which every child under the age of 12 considers “theirs”…and which the teenagers like to claim for the hour or so before it is closed for the night. We can see the entrance from the balcony and Hannah’s first mission every morning is to 1) see if it’s raining and 2) see if the park is open.

So, once we escaped from the park, we tried to entertain ourselves with cooking. That didn’t always go as I had planned – in fact, never once did it go as I had planned. But never mind. Our most successful efforts were for custard biscuits (a recipe from my mum) that is very simple. Sugar, butter, flour and custard powder. Might sound a bit strange but it makes delicious biscuits and easy enough to involve a 3 year old with. Easy enough, that is, provided they don’t get distracted by a bag of satsumas and give up mixing butter and sugar!

But we had a good time, and she came back on track to sample the finished product (as every good 3 year old would do when there is butter and sugar in the vacinity!)

Now, as for my weaving – that didn’t receive quite so much dedicated attention as the park, walking around the city or making biscuits, but I did get some stuff done.

Fairy Princess or Pixie queen…either way I never win

I have a 4 day weekend coming up and I have great plans to get some weaving done. I’ve just finished making a warp, it’s on the loom and I’ve started threading (pics to follow), but I suspect that the company I’ll be keeping on this long Hallowe’en weekend, will ensure that little or no weaving gets done…It doesn’t matter whether she’s the wellie-wearing fairy princess, or the barefoot pixie – I never win!
