Evening all, hope everyone’s good!?
I’ve had a day at home with the munchkin doing mummy/ toddler things today.
Oliver came downstairs and got to see the Christmas tree for the first time this morning, he LOVED IT! He just looked at it with a kind of Awe, then Andy brought out the chocolate decorations and he threw himself into helping hang those up! I think he just wanted to help so he knew where they were for later!
Then we spent the morning doing crafty things! It started with making rice crispy cakes except I didn’t read the cereal box before I poured so they were rice crispy/ frosted flake chocolate nests. It was a really good activity to do with Oliver on a rainy day because we always have the ingredients in the cupboard, it didn’t make ‘too’ much mess and we got cakes out of it!! Oliver was eating the mix as I spooned it into each case so I’m guessing he approved!
I signed up for toucanbox a few months back and we have had a lot of fun with them. It is a subscription box that fits through the letter box and each one contains EVERYTHING you need to do a craft project inside. You can get them Here.
Our latest one was to build a gingerbread house! You popped out the card shapes, decorated them with glitter glue, sequins and cotton wall snow then assembled it all together, Oliver Loved doing it, especially the glitter glue!
I spent the afternoon having cuddles on the sofa watching toy story (twice!) before I made Olivers tea, which was home made chicken nuggets and chips with beans, I will do a post how I made the nuggets soon but they went down well with the munchkin!
Our tea tonight was one of my faves! Steak with ratatouille (find recipe here)
Andys been called out (again!) so I’m taking my bedtime treats up and watching YouTube.
Hope you have all had a good day!
