Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)

Alice and I have been quite ill this past week so I haven't been able to update :(

But we are both on the mend, unfortunately we passed it onto my family (oops), and Megan never got it thank goodness!!

Anyway, yesterday was Shrove Tuesday and as Alice and I were feeling better I thought we should definitely have some pancakes! I halved the recipe so that I didn't make too many as we still aren't 100% yet.

I got everything ready and it's advised that you leave the batter for 5 minutes before making the pancakes.

 I ended up making 3, it would have been 4 but the first one was absolutely rubbish!

With my pancakes I like to have sugar, cinnamon and some lemon juice. It was sooo yummy :)

I put Nutella on Alice's one as I know how much my girl loves Nutella! Only thing was that I found she rather eat the Nutella off the pancake rather than the actual pancake itself, so she was scraping the Nutella off with her finger and eating that instead. At least I tried I suppose.

And what was Megan doing throughout this I hear you ask. Just have a look.

She fell sound asleep in her bouncy chair bless!

Did any of you have pancakes yesterday? What kind of toppings do you like? Sweet or savoury?

I'm Back!

Life has taken over and I have found it difficult to blog as of late.

I've been trying to handle life with 2 children and it takes a lot of time, and a lot of patience!
I must say that it is soo lovely looking after my two beautiful girls and they bring me soo much joy. But when I have time to myself I tend to just relax rather than decide to blog.

I am back now after almost a month and I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things again :)

This week we did some playing

I got a surprise parcel

I have been doing some DIY

Done some baking

Saw some friends

and we've started having a bit more family time

Hope you are all having a wonderful 2013 so far, I know we are :)
