February is always a busy month.
No sooner than it arrives than we seem to be nearing it's end.
Of course we started off with Shrove Tuesday and pancakes.
Although ours happened a few days later than planned, we eventually got them at the weekend.
Last year on Ballet Day S and I made paper ballerinas, this year she and her friend L made edible ones from an idea on Pinterest.
Marshmallows have also been used in another bake. This was a really quick and easy tray bake and as the website says it would be perfect for Bonfire Night, served warm from the oven with ice cream.
There has also been Chinese New Year to celebrate with paper lanterns and delicious food
and when they were taken down the Valentine's decorations went up. When Kezzie sent me my lovely brooch she also very kindly included confetti sized birds and hearts. I glued these onto a couple of lengths of red ribbon and hung one from the food cupboard in the dining room
and the other from the saucepan rack in the kitchen. Tiny but very sweet embellishments.
Half term has been quiet. T was away at the start. He went on a school trip to Madrid and has come back with a head full of cold and been living in his dressing gown ever since.
S and I have been to town so she could spend a Waterstones voucher and yesterday we met my mum and sisters for a coffee and chat. Apart from that she has been busy doing S type things which involve notepaper, felt tip pens and sellotape.
As long as they're happy that's good enough for me.
