Thanks goodness, the school is over for a week. I feel so tired, we really need this break. My plans? To do nothing and just have a rest. We will have some play dates for Eddie and go out a bit, but nothing major, at least no travelling.
This dove is a local. It makes a nest among the branches of the creeper on one of the houses in our street.
The garden looks quite jolly already, with lots of snowdrops and crocuses. The potted lavender is covered with tiny blue blooms too.
On Tuesday we had fun, making Ninja Turtles for Eddie. I mixed the batter with matcha tea for the green colour, and blue and red food dyes for bandanas. Faces were drawn with chocolate icing.
It's been raining quite a lot in the last week, and we cannot go through the fields into town any longer. The fields look like a big lake.
I picked a little posy of crocuses and snowdrops to cheer me up and bring a bit of colour indoors.
My neighbour asked me to help her decorate the cake. It is for a 2-year-old girl who loves ballet. I used some pink and white sugar paste as well as icing pens.
Say it with the flowers on Valentine's day is usually say it with a chocolate cake in our case. My men wouldn't care for flowers, but everyone likes a cake.
