School has started again, the children are settled in and it seems like the summer holidays are long gone, I'm looking forward to the Autumn, I like the wintry months, our long walk to school each day will be much easier when we're all wrapped up warm.
I like this time of year as it leads to thoughts of hallowen, bonfire night, Christmas & my ideas for miniatures goes into overdrive!!!
I have been offered window space in a lovely shop I pass everyday called The Gallery, so I have been busy making Halloween goodies, I made toffee apples this morning, just how I remember them, with deep red hard toffee around them & a flat top where it had been left on the tray to set...we also used to play bob apple which was an apple dangling from a piece of string which you had to take a bite from without holding it! my children love playing it now on any occasion, & it's how I got them eating apples, so why not!
I am also going to be exhibiting at Chelmsfords civic theatre for the whole of December, all through the panto, lots of peter pan & cinderella inspired miniatures to think about!
Todays happy thought; I keep trying to lose weight, but it keeps finding me!
