Over the last few days we’ve been trying out the new Yeo Valley cook book. It’s packed full of yummy looking recipes but we thought we’d try their recipe for ginger cake.
The toddler helped (obviously!).
And this is what we made
Delicious with custard!
Today we ventured to our local library for the first time. Both my children love to read at home and seemed to enjoy the Storytime session too. They packed an awful lot into an hour including a story, singing and even some crafting. I can’t wait to go back again next week and get our library cards so we can bring some lovely books home.
Have you heard of the Little Poppets? They feature in a new series of board book first stories which follow the adventures of four friends: Mole, Rose, Pippin and Mouse. The stories are sweet and comical, with little mysteries for the Little Poppets to solve, such as where on earth the socks on Mouse’s sock tree really come from!
Children will love the little felt characters and the magical world they live in, which are full of expression and detail. Mouse’s reading lamp is made from a birthday cake candle in a bobbin, and his bed is constructed from postcards.
I have one copy of Mouse’s Sock Tree to giveaway to one reader of treading on lego. To win simply leave me a comment and tell me the name of Mole, Rose, Pippin and Mouse’s gang.
The prize consists of one Little Poppets board book. The giveaway ends May 21st at 8pm. The winner will be selected at random from all correct entries received and notified by email or their twitter handle. The prize is as stated: no cash alternatives are available. This competition is open to UK and ROI entrants only.
It’s been a year since we last visited but today we went back to the children’s playground on Harefield Village Green. We had been in the area on a very un-exciting tip run so we stopped off to let them run around.
The playground was pretty identical to the one we go to in Ruislip. Little Sis enjoyed herself too.
