A belated round up of our last few days with the Kindness Elves
Day 10 – surplus toy cars donated to local playgroup, Scout dog and stories sold for piggy bank pounds (saving for yet more lego!)
Day 11 – woops, no photo of the postman’s card
Day 12 – donating cat food at Morrisons for New Start Cat Rescue
Day 13 – an ongoing part of the festive season!
Making biscuits for friends on Day 3 with the Kindness Elves was so simple thanks to our Oxo Good Grips Cookie Press.
Dozens of perfect-every-time mini cookies easily pressed into a range of 12 different shapes using a one-click handle that even a 3 year old can manage.
The secret to perfect biscuits is all in the dough, made by following the recipe in the booklet provided to the ounce. Substituting any of the ingredients (like thinking self raising flour will do in place of plain the first time you use it) will be courting disaster.
Trust me, I know!
Disclaimer: With thanks to Oxo Good Grips who sent us this cookie press to try.
I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.
Another year gone in the blink of an eye. All of these memories a moment in time and still so fresh in my mind. That may not be the case in years to come (and certainly after I blow half my brain cells giving birth in April!) How thankful I am for this lovely tradition we have of creating a year in pictures (inspired since 2011 by Julie at Little Cotton Rabbits).
So exciting to ponder how 2016 will look this time next year when we’re a family of 4.
January – December 2015:
E’s 3rd birthday, Mummy’s 40th birthday in Pembrokeshire, Grandad’s birthday, back yard wall art, Daddy’s 40th birthday in Hereford, bedtime story with cousin Tom in a treehouse in Germany, visiting friends in the Isle of Wight, garden fun with buddies in Chipping Campden, first day at a new playgroup, a new baby, meeting 5 month old cousin Kian, Angel Gabriel in the playgroup nativity.
Day 6 – intended to make these yarn wrap leaves but E’s daily card making turned into gift making for Nana and Grandad.
Day 7 – bird feeders; first attempt using coconut oil and gelatine flopped (too crumbly) but second attempt using lard in a yogurt pot succeeded.
Day 8 – piggy bank pennies for Guide Dogs for the blind
Day 9 – card for the binmen (we missed them on the last collection day so our card will become a New Year thank you)
