I've had a quiet one today, the most exciting thing I've achieved is to whip up a stash of flapjacks for OH.
I used this recipe from British recipes and was surprised to learn they are actually pretty good for you. So naturally I ruined that by adding a blob of chocolate on each one from some old chocolate coins no one had eaten from Christmas last year.
It's kept DD amused and away from upsetting Baby D, and made OH rather happy as flapjacks are a particular favourite of his.
At only three ingredients to make a basic batch they are rather a frugal nummy treat.
Hopefully I will feel a little better tomorrow and blog something nicer lol

This is where I have discovered that I own 4, yes 4 dressing gowns!!! I had completely forgotten about 2 of them lol.
* The white fleece one was a present for my last birthday and is my usual everyday dressing gown. This one will be staying.
* The pink towelling dressing gown is from when I had DD and wanted a "disposable" gown for the hospital. It has a few stains and marks so I wouldn't want to donate it, but I'm wondering if I can cut it up or use it for some crafty endeavour. Any ideas?
* Moo cow fleece dressing gown. Another present but can't remember when and why, it's lovely a soft with a really snuggly hood but it's very very short. Mini skirt short! I feel very exposed when I am wearing it and as such have barely ever used it. This one is headed for the donation bin or the craft pile with the pink one if I can find something to do with them.
* Silky summer dressing gown. This was a bargain from a local charity shop last summer when I was looking for a light gown for hot summer evenings. Although this year hasn't brought it into use much I will be stashing it with some summer dresses i the vague hope that next year is warmer.
So my collection of dressing gowns will be halved in short order. Only the white one will be returning to the back of the door to live with OH's grey version. And I have some googling to do to try and find a use for the other two. If you have any ideas or links please feel free to pop me a comment :)

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while. Life and late pregnancy is getting in the way big time here at The Frugal Handmade Home. I seem to be spending all my time going to medical appointments or cleaning random things in the house.
With my due day official 7 days away now things are getting exciting. Every morning I wake up thinking "Is today the day?"

While the pasta is cooking, we give DD the other ingredients in a bowl to stir and stir and stir. Suspiciously there becomes less and less sausage as the stirring continues and once dinner is served DD seems already half full!
