I've Moved

I've decided to accumulate all my blogs into one. Might change my mind in the future, but for now, I can be found here:



I hope you'll come over there with me.

Chocolate Buns

Sitting here tonight fancying something really delicious, I decided to make some chocolate buns. I think you can safely say they rose well!

Thanks for looking

Mum came to visit this last Sunday and brought me some gorgeous red tulips. I was given a tip by her to prick the stem just under each head to keep them upright. Must say, it worked as it's now Wednesday and they're still relatively good.

Thanks for looking

Today's Baking

Made to make your mouth water. Well, they did Mum's and mine. There was enough for us to have a few for afternoon tea and for her to take some home. Very simple recipe (Easter Biscuit one and flavours changed to suit my mood) and I always use icing sugar instead of caster). I also cut mine into sort of rectangles instead of having to roll the dough several times cutting circles. Means the dough doesn't get worked too much resulting in lighter biscuits with a lovely crunch.

Thanks for looking. Let me know when you're dropping round and I'll bake some for you too.

Love, Sarah C xx

I Just Love This Panorama Photo Programme

David bought a new camera at the week-end. Turns out it's a model up from mine. Do you think he'll notice if I swap??? With the camera, he got a disc of programmes and one of those being a Panorama Photo Maker. I tested it out with 5 photos I took of my Mum's village a couple of years ago. I did a LO with them by sticking them together, but this programme does it seamlessly.

Here's the LO with the 5 photos

Here's the Panorama Programme's edited photo

Computer programmes never cease to amaze me. I can see me using this programme several times.

Thanks for looking,
Love and hugs, Sarah xoxoxo

Sunday 22nd November 2009

David and I had the privilege of having our youngest nephew round in the morning. A mix of fun, play and Jaffa Cakes!! I just love the sound of a young child playing and laughing, but why is it they stop making any noise at all and play silently as soon as you start videoing them?
