Proud mummy, experimenting and still there.

1) Today I came across this post from three years ago, wherein Aidan is awarded a “Superstar” for writing a story. On the main school noticeboard today was a copy of the story A wrote last week – he’s been awarded a “Good Work Star” for it!

We’ll get the story scanned in and up on the kid’s blog later this week, if you are interested in actually reading it!

2) A’s favourite playtime snack is a Mixed Berry Fruit and Oat bar, but everywhere I go to buy them is out-of-stock. So I decided to have a go at recreating them… The basic recipe – whizz some oats, and make a mixed berry jam (blackberries, strawberries, and sugar). Strain the jam to remove the bits, and mix with the oats. Press into a baking tray and bake. The result was surprisingly good, although I’ll increase the fruit to oat ratio next time I think.

3) Accidentally closing the tab containing this post, going to Recently Closed Tabs, re-opening it and discovering that nothing has been lost!

About Carolyn

This blog has served different purposes over the years - it started out following a Three Beautiful Things (3BT) structure: and I used to record three things, often the ordinary moments in life, which made me smile that smile. Then, I joined a community of knitters sharing my progress on what I was knitting that week. Now, after a long hiatus, I'm back to share an unusual new knitting project...
