How I relax has changed a lot over the last few months. I used to love nothing more than spending a few hours in the kitchen making things like macaroons! I really admire my friends who ACTUALLY DO THINGS of an evening. I rush around like a mad thing tidying up while Mama does Squiblet's bath and then as soon as Squiblet is in her cot I collapse in a heap on the sofa, check Facebook, check my emails...sometimes look at Twitter although I don't fully understand what to do! And then I watch TV for an hour, have a cuddle with Mama and then usually it's bedtime! Not very glamorous. I'm definitely not one for baking cakes at that time of day. I suspect they wouldn't taste very nice as I like to have time and space to cook properly.

How I relax (this was Squiblet and I earlier today - we both have the sniffles!):
But having said that, Squiblet is actually now pretty good at baking! She can crack eggs and spoon and dollop pretty well. So we make cakes together. I think I'll have to wait until she's at least three before I teach her the art of the macaroon but for now we'll make do with wonderful gloopy, chocolatey and slightly tacky cakes that we're still both proud of!
All for now! It's nap time and I think I fancy a cup of tea!
Holiday next week....WAHOOOOOOO! *keeping fingers firmly crossed that nothing jinxes it this time!*
