...the last few days of the school summer holidays are over and my Miss M goes back to school tomorrow. We are both quite sad about this - we've had a really nice summer, even though the weather has very rarely been summer like!
Our baking challenge continues! The first week was a disaster....we made 'Cake in a Jar' and it looked and tasted awful! This week we made a chocolate cake with vanilla icing (which my girl piped on, she loved doing this) which I'm glad to say was so much nicer.
We went to do some ceramic painting which is one of our favourite things to do together. I painted the little cow you can see in the photo which Miss M has named Daisy - very original!
We went to see the Kelpies which I loved - they are so impressive! The weather was very cloudy and grey that day but somehow it added to the experience for me and I loved the way the Kelpies looked against the moody sky. On the way home we went to Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow which is one of Miss M's favourite places to go.
My girl was very keen to do some sewing using the sewing machine and she ended up spending an afternoon making a pile of cute little cushions to give to her friends!
I had a go at some amigurumi this week and made this little cat which Miss M had seen in my Simply Crochet magazine and loved. I have to say...amigurumi is not for me! All that counting! I didn't really enjoy making it to be honest and the poor little cat is quite wonky! But my girl likes it and that's the main thing. I'm just hoping that she won't ask for anymore amigurumi toys...blankets and cushions etc are more my thing!
So back to the usual routine for us tomorrow...but then I've told myself it won't be long until the next school holiday!
Wishing you all a lovely week.
