Just finished

Just finished this little bunny for Baby D's first birthday in August.
I hope she enjoys her as much as I liked knitting her.

Use-it-up cake.

I couldn't resist sneaking some time away from sorting and packing to show you my baking.

Its a sandwich Battenburg!  Using up my almond essence, food colouring,  dried eggs, marzipan and silver balls. Phew! That'll save some packing space lol.

The plan is to eat it during a seaside picnic tomorrow.  I will try and pop back to tell you how it goes.

Popping in for a moment

 Sorry it's been so quiet here lately, but there is big news in the FHMH house after almost 6 years of waiting and bidding, we finally have been offered a Council Home!!!!! There has been much excitement and celebrating I can tell you.

 We are just waiting on confirmation which have been assured we will get on Friday and is just a "paperwork" thing, so it is definitely ours. We should get our first proper access on Monday and Our moving date is a week Friday! So we are having a huge dejunk and pack-a-thon here to get everything ready in time.

 I will post soon with some photo's of the new place.

Family picnic

On Sunday we headed to Victoria Country Park with all the in-laws for a big family picnic. We each brought something to eat and drink for everyone so it was quite a varied tasty feast. The weather was just perfect for sitting on the shore and chatting. Or in my case going beach-combing with my little SIL.


This is part of the famous Victoria Hospital which is in the centre of the site. It houses a lovely exhibition about Florence Nightingale who was quite involved with the building of the sight. If you have five minutes spare I recommend looking the park up on Wikipedia.

 I spent the afternoon beach combing with my SIL Rosie. I've blogged our finds over on my other blog - here.
 And finally a little peek at my current WIP - pink and white stripe jumper for Baby D. I'm knitting it for aged 1 year so it should do for the winter.
 And a quick project I just finished. A pair of multi color socks for DD using up a ball of interesting wool I picked up an age ago in a charity shop. They are really snugly and warn, perfect for colder weather.
