Catch up

It's been a bit of a week, this week haven't been feeling that good as I've been busy so this will be a bit of a catch up.
Family picnic (a couple of weekends ago). We went to Witney near Oxford, it's a lovely little town. We found a lovely park to sit in to have our picnic. It was quite a nice day sunny in the morning and then it did cloud over a bit in the afternoon but at lease it wasn't as cold as last year!
It was quite a spread, we all bought different dishes so it was yummy! My brother-in-law was looking through my new cupcake book a while ago and asked me to make these, toffee apple cupcakes! They were meant to look like this:
Here's my attempt! I was quite impressed with how they turned out in the end. It wasn't very easy though! It was fun to make the caramelized sugar shapes but the icing was quite difficult as it set really quickly!
They went down well though every one was quite impressed!! They were yummy, they had a nice crunch when you bit into them!
We then have a nice scroll around the canal to let it all down down. It was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Last weekend we had my nephew over night as his parents were at a wedding. He was very good but now he has found his feet all he wants to do is walk around the house investigating everything, he really kept us on our toes!! He slept really well and didn't wake up until 7 so that was good. He didn't go home until early evening on Sunday so by the time he went he had worn me out!! I've been paying for it a bit this week.
On Tuesday I went to my old primary school to help out with they art and craft. It was nice to meet the new ones in the class. We are making a really big picture to go along the wall in the classroom. They are learning about Brunel so it's of a big bridge with a train on it and houses and the sea, it's from a story book they are reading. They were really good and they enjoyed doing something on a big scale for a change.
Well I think that's it for now next post will be a crafty one! My parents are away this weekend so I have a quiet weekend planned, scrapping yay!
Have a good weekend.
