I'm back again after another adsl service interruption! And also back after a nice weekend of pottering around with the kids, going for a run, taking everyone to get a hair cut and dabbling with a little bit of craft. This laundry art was actually going to be a far more significant piece - my plan was to do a single large mosaic of laundry box pieces but I really have to settle for what I can actually do within the time I have available (none) - so I'm happy with the result - it makes me smile.
And if cupcakes absorbed any of the noise around them while they were being created, these ones would just sit around all day and SHOUT. On Saturday Zali and Jett were having quiet time and nap time respectively so I decided to try out a new recipe for cupcakes thinking that by the time they were out of the oven Zali would be up and she would enjoy icing them. Two minutes into preparations Zali got up and about ten minutes in, Jett got up and also insisted he play his part in every last baking operation. So rather than a quick bake, it was a drawn out, messy and intense affair (as is everything i guess with 2 and 3 year olds). Anyway the result was good and once my ears stop ringing I'll be able to watch tv again.
In work news I'm staying on at Blue Rocket until the end of January at least, by which time there will hopefully be new projects on the horizon although a break wouldn't be all bad! After christmas I'll just be working 4 mornings a week so I can still fit in the cake orders. Cool.
