Hoorah for the holidays!

It's the school holidays and the kids are having a great time with their cousins (well, Dr Green's cousins) Tom and Flora who have come to stay for a couple of days.

Us girls have been out for tea and cake at Stop the World. Followed by a bit of shopping and home to do some sewing. Flora's gingerbread man is the one with green buttons, Esme's is a gingerbread lady.

Meanwhile, the boys have played on the Wii, popped out for a quick round of par 3 golf, back home for some lunch and PlayStation, and are off in a bit to kick a football around with Dr Green.

On the agenda tonight we have home made pizza, a movie for the boys, a movie for the girls, and Aunty Rachel will be turning up early evening. It doesn't get much better than this.

Our Mabel....

... is turning into a beautiful dog. Just look at this photo, she's changed so much over the past 2 weeks. Her nose is elongated and she's starting to have a really elegant look about her. She's got those wonderfully long eyelashes that curl up at the ends.

"Mrs Miggins's pie shop" has been busy

Today's offerings are a gruyere and leek tart and a chicken, leek, bacon and creamy sauce pie.

Have been bitten by the baking bug.... I'll blame the Great British Bake Off. I'm quite sad it's finished.
