Coffee Filter Suncatchers

As the weather has turned, we’ve been looking for ways to make the most of our lovely sunny sitting room. We’ve made suncatchers before, but we hadn’t tried using coffee filters before. I decided we’d make umbrella coffee filter suncatchers. It was such a success that we repeated it the next day, to make autumn leaves.

Retro Toddler Dungarees from Beebies Baby Store

I love clothes. I like quirky, bold and fun clothes. I like clothes that make a statement. I like well made clothes made from good quality fabric.

I have a special fondness for dungarees.

Of course, I’m talking about clothes for Potato, not myself. I’ve written before about how difficult it is to buy clothes for a toddler boy. So when I discovered that Beebies Baby Store were selling these gorgeous retro toddler dungarees, I was so excited to try them out.

Peanut Butter Brownies

Who can resist rich, dense, chocolatey brownies? Not me, that's for sure. How about when they're topped with crunchy peanuts? Even better!

This week, we're joining in with Aldi UK to help them celebrate National Baking week and to mark the relaunch of their The Pantry range of baking essentials. Potato and I were challenged to recreate one of their Sweet Treat puddings, using only Aldi products.

After much debate, we decided to go for the Peanut Butter Brownies.

Play Dough Bakery

This week has been all about baking. Even when we weren't actually baking, we were pretending to bake. This week, we set up our own play dough bakery. I've been meaning to make our own play dough for a while now. There are so many more options available when you make it yourself and it's so easy.
