|A strawberry victoria sponge cake with fresh cream!!!|
|A lovely little basket (you can never have too many) which I will fill with sewing stuff. It was 50p.|
|10 little vests, all 20p each.|
|This baby box was filthy! I scrubbed it clean and peeled off the ABC label as it was hanging off. It cost me £2.|
|These blankets cost me 50p each. We love the hand knitted and crocheted baby blankets. We have loads now, preparing for an Autumn baby. They are in excellent condition.|
|A pretty little dress, some pink spotty leggings, a heart sleepsuit and pink fleece jacket. All cost 20p each.|
|A little toy - 20p.|
Avent bottle warmer, £2.50. Brand new.
£1 a bag. I am knitting squares to make a blanket/throw for my sofas. I love these colours!
|These sheets are brand new and cost me £1.|
|This wallpaper border cost me £5 for the 3. It is mamas and papas. This is going up in the baby's room this weekend!|
|6 little cardies, each beautifully knitted by someone much more talented than me! We have bought a couple of pink bits, but not much. all of these are different sizes, but the baby is predicted to be 5lb because she hasn't been growing properly. I am constantly looking out for tiny clothes. These cardies were 20p each - bargain!!!|
Didn't we do well???!!!
Hopefully the nursery will be finished soon :-)
Ps: please leave a comment or follow me. I am unable to leave comments on my favourite blogs - don't know why???
Thank you for reading.

|My 1st attempt at millionaire's shortbread|
I did baking on Sunday too, but as usual, I forgot to take any photos. I made 2 victoria sandwiches, one with strawberry jam, the other with my homemade blackberry and apple jam, some individual coffee cakes and iced fairy cakes. The cake tins are full and I'm building up a stock in the freezer too.
A crafting afternoon ahead for tomorrow...
p.s: I can't leave comments on anybody's blogs and I don't know why and I don't know how to make it better :-(
Please help if you know how.
|Ashley's birthday cake with Flo watching with interest!|
|I attempted to make some microwave jam with the blackberries I picked last year.|
|I managed to make all these jars.|
|We love this quick pudding in the week.|
|These batteries cost £1.50 which is a bargain even if the quality is not too good.|
|This is a syrup loaf (Ashley had a slice before I took the photo!) It's really easy to make, just syrup, milk, flour, bicarb and a pinch of salt. I think we will have it with custard for pudding tomorrow.|
|It's Ashley's birthday tomorrow so this will be his cake, I just need to add candles, 22 of them!!!|
|Ashley asked me to make cake for him to take to work to share. This is a lemon sponge.|
|I'm actually ahead of myself and organised! This is for my Valentine, my lovely husband.|
|This was a new recipe - spiced fruit cake. The texture is strange because you add a crumble topping.|
|Gorgeous chocolate fudge cake squares. I have made these since Ashley was a baby when I was 19. The cake is very moist and the icing fudgy - yum yum! Ashley will take some of these to work too.|
