Yarns and Fabrics

March 16th, 2014

On Friday Little Bee and I took Auntie Amanda to the Knitting and Stitching Show at London Olympia for her birthday treat. Auntie Amanda was thrilled and I have spent all my March budget so will be eating peanuts for the rest of the month!




Beady Bracelets

March 16th, 2014

I bought Little Bee some beads the last time we saw Mama Al for a Yo Sushi! lunch date. I put it aside when we got home and then forgot about it until Little Bee brought it out about half hour ago.

Half an hour later… here are our new jewelleries ;)

Hopscotch Spring

March 8th, 2014

I couldn’t find the keys to the back garden so Little Bee and I spent the afternoon in the front garden repotting the lemon plant, planting some bulbs (which I can’t remember what they are) that I bought months ago and after a visit from the RSPCA lady, we played hopscotch.

Yes, let’s take advantage of the weather as you never know what tomorrow will be.

Sashimi Feast

March 7th, 2014

Hubby reminded me that he’ll be out tonight.

So after stopping at the doctors to book an appointment, Little Bee and I went to Sainsbury and bought salmon loin and a few hours later, this is what we had for dinner :D

Little Bee did this all on her own and she’s very proud of it ;)

Mama Don’t Go

February 26th, 2014

little bee

It breaks my heart every time I leave her at home. It breaks my heart even more when I wake her up in the morning to get her ready for nursery before I myself rush off to work and to hear her say ‘Mama don’t go to work’.

I took the day off yesterday as Little Bee asked me to. We didn’t do much apart from playing board games and had a picnic in the front room… but it was worth taking the day off from work.

And today she wants me to stay again… even though she knows I can’t.

I’ve been leaving her to go to work since she was seven months. She’s four years old now and it’s not getting any easier.

We Want Spring

February 24th, 2014

We had a wonderful day out with Mummy Liz and Little Bee’s current love Nate on Friday. We went to Southbank, build cardboard world, had sushi, run around the park, cross the bridge and had coffee and cake down a crypt.

After all the rain, it was nice to have a lovely sunny day.

And on the way back, we stopped at Sainsbury’s and Little Bee insisted that stop at the flower corner and buy these.


Now… we’re desperately waiting for Spring to arrive.

Sausages, Sausage Rolls, Gyoza

February 16th, 2014


I love the fact that I actually know what is in that mince… that bolognese sauce… that sausage casing… that sausage roll… gyoza pastry…

And today it was chicken thigh (found halal chicken thigh fillets in Sainsbury! Paid a bit more for my laziness… but sometimes… actually a lot of the time… I am very lazy), red Thai curry paste, coconut milk powder and breadcrumbs… goes into the casing and puff pastry :)

Oh… and the other day… I did gyoza the proper way… fried and then steamed :)


Putting Them Out There

February 14th, 2014

A good friend of mine has booked a stall today near Old Street and offered to help sell some of my stuff. As I haven’t had time to do much crocheting at the moment due to me being ill, Little Bee being ill and work and home demands, I gathered some of my previous projects and passed it over to him. Wish him luck with his and my sale!
