It's been so rainy this week! Good for puddles though.
On Tuesday we went to Daddy's work and had lunch with him and all his colleagues. On the way in the car Isla kept saying 'see Daddy' and she was very excited to see him when he finished his morning's work! We had a wander around town afterwards and bought some cookie cutters for use later that day.......when we decided to make some gingerbread men (and owls). I used this gingerbread recipe but with the addition of an egg to make the dough stick together a bit. Also didn't put in stem ginger or cayenne pepper (!) and the men and owls were yummy. We also bought a couple of christmassy cookie cutter shapes so will be doing some more biscuity type things for Christmas time! Exciting!!

On Wednesday we all enjoyed making some music and going for a walk to check out the puddles. We had delicious lamb shanks for dinner from our old 'Casa Mexicana' recipe. Today is Thursday and Isla is napping after a morning at toddler group. Our local pre-school were doing activities with us today: we made some jam tarts, did some songs and listened to a story. I suggested that we sing Old MacDonald and Isla piped up that there should be a cow on the farm. So we sang about it. Isla also cooked me a plastic green pepper.
