Firstly I should thank everyone that sent me messages and comments with links to pleated skirts after my recent post (here) about my hunt for a light coloured skirt. Although I have still not found the pleated skirt that meets my strict criteria I was excited and ever so grateful that you all assisted me in what is an ongoing search! With your continued help I am sure it won’t be long until I have found it! In other news Finding Femme and I’s favourite shoes are back in stock – thank goodness that search is over! Read all about that saga here.
We have been so busy lately that I have no recent photos to blog so here are some throwback shots from last summer when we went away. Roo would have been about two or three months old and I would have been enjoying some fun with my sister while he was having his bedtime routine with the Captain. How time flies!
Any other tips on getting a great pudding would be appreciated. We use the same recipe but the pudding always tastes slightly different each year. Last years pudding was not as nice as the year before. We usually just pour in a random amount of brandy depending on how much is left in Pa’s bottle, and I always struggle to make out Nan’s handwriting for the ounces of mixed spice so that varies each year depending on what I think it says (yes, I really should just write it down). I often make small alterations to the amount of peel or cherries that get added depending on who is in the kitchen at the time. Usually there is someone over my shoulder telling me to put in less peel and more cherries or vice-versa. Who knows, perhaps it’s the weather conditions or the length of time the pudding hangs that changes the taste. Clearly, I am in need of some advice in the pudding department!
