Busy,busy, Busy!

Whew! Finally I've managed to grab a few moments to sit at the computer and catch up with all that 's been going on in your part of the world! Life is busy but I'm thankful to say blessed for us, when I stop to consider some of the ordeals people are going through and whom we remember in prayer.

The past two days have been the children's annual sports days so I've been at school cheering them on. The weather mightn't have been the kindest, meaning it was so cold and even rainy. Still they had good fun!My son is in the green sack, giving it all he's got for his team.

I've managed to finish another little piece. This is my first attempt at making a little bird pinkeep. It's on a small pillow I made to set it up a bit so it can be seen on the shelf.
The homebaking bug caught up with me again today and I tried a cherry loaf which I hadn't tried before. My mom gave me the recipe and to my delight it's really straight forward plus it tastes good. Love it when somethings are easy. Here's a picture of it. The recipe is underneath if your interested in trying it.

Cherry Loaf

8 oz self raising flour
2 oz caster sugar
1 level teaspoon baking powder
2 oz butter
1 egg
7 tablespoons milk
4 oz chopped glace cherries

Sift flour, baking powder and sugar into mixing bowl. Add soft butter and blend in gently with fingers. Next add egg unbeaten and milk and then cherries. Carefully mix together with a spoon
until thoroughly mixed. You will have a sticky mixture. Put this in a small loaf tin and place in middle of hot oven for 1 hour at 350 o . Enjoy with a little butter if you want! Got more to do so bye for now and have a great week.
