I haven’t had any time for blogging this week because I have had my granddaughter staying with me.
We have been very busy and apart from everyday things we have:-
Continued with knitting practice.
I am teaching her to knit but it isn’t as easy as it might be because she lives a long way away and so we only have time together every few months. But she is very keen and beginning to grow in confidence.
We also made some origami figures:-
We each made half of the Ninja Star but my granddaughter decided I had to do the final folding. In the end we made two of different sizes but both times I found working out how to fold in the two pieces to get the final result totally baffling, till I somehow managed to get it right!
We baked some of the sultana oat cookies I posted about:-
Then we pressed them with a fork
and left them to cool on a rack.
All together we ended up with forty five cookies – scrumptious :-).
Then we made a cake for Sunday tea.
Earlier in the week we had also made some rabbit and ‘bush’ shaped jellies out of fruit juice and gelatine using these moulds.
– Much better than the packet sort of jelly!
We went shopping and played in the play park by the new Sainsbury’s.
We visited the cousins – twice!
And played computer games.
But then we had to say goodbye till next time.
