Our Family Fortnight - 28/01/17

This fortnight has mainly been sickness and baking, which isn't the perfect combination but we've got by. Firstly big J wasn't too well, he had a throat and ear infection and then I have been feeling ill for the last week. I have a bad cough and I am aching all over. We started off this fortnight by decorating some penguin biscuits. We received them as a gift for Christmas and it was so much fun and they were very tasty.

We melted some white chocolate buttons until the chocolate was perfect for decorating our penguin biscuits. We spread the chocolate, sprinkled some hundreds and thousands on then put some orange buttons on too.

Once they were set we enjoyed them as an afternoon snack.

Later in the week little J and I made a Quorn Spaghetti Bolognese 

Little J is absolutely loving his new bike off Grandma and Grandad. He rides it to school and is becoming so confident.

I was feeling sorry for myself this week as I haven't been too well so even though I am trying to be good and follow Slimming World I did have a sneak GU Pud Cheesecake. 

Dad has been taking care of me this week while I haven't been well, making sure the boys are okay, doing the lunches etc so I treated him to a Skinny Hazelnut Latte from Starbucks

Play-Doh session making lots of lovely creations. Little J made me a cake.

Love this photo of little J in Nursery cutting up a pepper to put on his vegetable pizza.

Big J has started playing football one evening a week so a we had a visit to Sports Direct for some new boots.

My homemade Chicken and Mushroom Stir Fry.



  1. the penguin biscuits look fun to have made and decorated. i dread to think how much i've spent on football boots over the years,

  2. How nice that they have enjoyed decorating their Christmas biscuits. They look brilliant.
    Think we all need a treat when we are feeling under the weather.
    Great that he uses his bike for school.
    Nice to see the school teaching them cooking skills.

  3. Hope everyone is feeling better! Those penguin biscuits look yummy ��

  4. Those penguin biscuits look really cute and a great activity #365
