Fab Four

Ok so we never hide we are fans of Fat Mum Slim at DTLL and when her recent app launched ' Little Moments' we shouted that from the rooftops as it was just too good not to do so!.

Not only is it fab but we have two of our amazing stores designing for it in the fonts section.. Emma and Charlotte have added their usual magical touch and man does it make the pics look cuter than before.

Well I have played along with the fabulous photo a day game since it first ever launched and the other week I got picked in fab four!.. first time.. like, ever!

AND this week I am the judge of Fab Four for the week as Down that Little Lane designed the list this month.. oh my lordy.. the pressure!. No I am actually looking forward to it even though I know it will be hard to narrow down to just 4!

Do you play along? Will I pick you? Hmmmm

Me? A Teacher?


Maxabella is a funny chicken, she is fabulously generous, rather patient, a better Mum than I and always eager to learn more.. a factual sponge with a childlike need to know and well quite frankly it makes me smile whilst jealousy bubbles :)

Sum up? She's a good egg..

Bron asked me if I would teach her some thing. I of course said 'Sure!, What?' 'How to work around my family' she said.. Hmmm OK..

and here it is.... My post on 'How to work around your family'

The easier Banana Bread...

Its is easier as less ingredients, less team and less chance of getting it wrong, oh and produces lesser sized result.. as in it makes cookies instead of a loaf..

This has becomes my go to for the left over bananas when the kids SUDDENLY decide they are over the fabulous yellow things when the 7 days prior they had been demolishing them like there was a famine on the way.

What are they?

* 2 bananas
* 1 cup of quick oats (I have used all sorts of cereals as binding agents)
* 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (You could do without)
* 1/2 cup of dark choc chips (I also used sultanas and marshmallows in different batches)

Bind all together and cook for 10mins at around 220 degrees and ta da

Do you have a magic recipe for the left over bananas? pray tell...
