Want to know how??

Following the success of The Great Create last week we wondered if there was a 'make' in mind that you would like a tutorial on?

Do you long to know how to make a cupcake pincushion?

Hankering for a homemade needlecase?

Let us know your desires and we will try and (try) come up with a legible tutorial for you crafty lot!

Should you need inspiration, we find a good rummage in a fabric shop or crafty establishment, a nosy on a blog or two, usually does the trick, so have a look at these blogs and shops and see if that helps!

Birthday parties & a bit of bobbling

Well, it's been a week of balloons, too much cake and very over excited little girls but finally I think we have returned to normality!

Rosi turned 4 last Tuesday and we had a fabulous tea party for her on Saturday with lots of scrummy cakes and a magician.

In between all that we did manage to squeeze in a bit of bobbling! The Great British Bake Off bug is obviously reaching all ages as we have been selling loads of little people aprons (complete with mini wooden spoon). We have also re-stocked on our Rosi totes after selling out last week, think this new range is going to go well!

Got loads of dates penciled in for November and December where we will be dufflebobbling Christmas style, we'll confirm more soon x thanks bobblers for your continued support x

From the kitchen of Rosi & Kitty -chicken and roasted veg cous cous

Very straight forward, older kiddies could help chop veg and so quick-it's healthy and nutritious and fairly cheap too!

You will need:
Left over root veg
Cous cous
Chicken breast

Chop your veg to the size your children can manage (Rosi likes chunky peppers but small mushrooms!)
Cover in oil and roast for 20-30 mins
In the meantime, chop your chicken and fry in a little oil.
About 5 mins befor veg and chicken is ready, cook your cous cous according to packet instructions (it's usually immerse in boiled water for 5 mins), I like to crumble a veg stock cube in this water/cous cous mix as it adds a nice flavour.
Once everything is cooked, mix it all together and serve! Easy x
