You just have to slow down sometimes and take a moment or two for tea and cake and a freebie magazine 🙂 I’m easing myself into school run routine with comfy pieces. I love my marinière cotton knit so much by H&M Girls a couple of years ago, I bought the navy version as well and they’re both still going strong. The beige chinos by Gap look best with white and pale colours.
I always wear the plimsolls with socks and insist my kids do as well – it just makes them last longer if you know what I mean. If they don’t want to wear socks then they simply have to wear something else. I got back into baking erm in a big way 🙂 36 fairy cakes and 18 scones – these are the leftovers after a few were delivered to a neighbour, packed into lunchboxes and scoffed on the spot! I have pretty boxes and tins but on an industrial scale, prettiness seems to go out of the window with storage box manufactures. In the same week there were 2 family birthdays so I baked a double batch of sponge cake as well. I used my Kenwood Major for those for the first time and it’s a m a z i n g!! Next on the list will be the chocolate brownies, lemon cake and carrot cupcakes.
Thanks for reading!
