Things I'm Loving

Things I'm loving this week....

Although the boys are growing up waaay too fast for me to comprehend, I am enjoying some of the benefits of having older kids in the house.

It all started with Mr B having a tantrum about eating one of my dinners...he was promptly told to make his own... however the only recipe he could find was pancakes.... and to cut a long story short... he didn't get his way, but he did get to make the batter by himself for pancakes the next day..... since then I've had the older two make a batch of cookies this week.... all by themselves ( I only took them in a out of the oven ) and they were delish!  Then the other night my younger two helped me make the majority of our dinner. 
And tonight my eldest made us creamy carbonara ( from scratch, so proud ), I watched in the background giving him the instructions. 

Though the cherry on the top is that he thanked me for letting him cook it! lol


Also loving another culinary triumph! 
My second sourdough starter is a success...
It took me two attempts, (the first starter ended up all over the car floor after the crash).... and my first bread was too sour ( I left the sponge for too long )  and it stuck to the bowl.... but the second is just right :) 


And I'm loving rainbows,
I'd forgotten about how many rainbows you see up north...I used to take them for granted when I was younger, but now the kids and I are taking great joy in rainbow spoting!


Lastly, I am touched by all the support offered by my bloggy friends after my post about my accident....
Thankyou so much to you all, your words have really helped me lift my spirits this week :)
