It’s nearly Easter

So in preparation, Miss 2.8 and I made some hot cross buns today. Having  a breadmaker to make the dough streamlines the process somewhat, and certainly made for fewer sticky hands.  DD is a fabulous helper, keen to measure and tip, pour and break eggs. She was even able to make very nice crosses.


 And with the addition of a little patience and time, they were soon ready to eat.  This is the one that caught her eye. Methinks she’s clever – it was the biggest one on the tray 🙂


And it met with her eating approval too…


And when DH arrived home, he couldn’t stomach even one – they had been eating Hot Cross Buns all day at work already.

We are looking forward to two lovely weeks holiday now, DS 11 is off tomorrow morning to visit with his South Island Grandparents for 7 nights, so we will have a quiet house.  DH is off work for two weeks too, so hopefully we will get to have some fun adventures, and I might get a bit more knitting time with an extra pair of hands around the place.
