Time and Baking

Today was the start of the first online class that I'm doing with Shimelle called My Freedom - the link is One of the prompts was to think about time and taking photos. While looking around the house I took 6 photos of clocks - I didn't even realise we had that many (and that was without Jon, Hugh, Claire and Emily's alarm clocks!). I'm really hoping that I have the TIME to keep up with this class, I think it's going to be a lot of fun. Tomorrow Mum and I are going to take a drive to The Craft Barn (more photos for the 2nd prompt - TRAVEL) so I can have a look for some patterned paper for the album.

As I mentioned in my last couple of posts, today Emily had an inset day. We had a bit of a lie in and then went to Nero's for breakfast (coffee & muffin) with Mum before going to do the weekly shop at Sainsburys. Didn't get home until lunch time then, after a late lunch, Emily decided to make some Ginger Snaps. She bought a new book on Saturday called Ginger Snaps by Cathy Cassidy and at the back of the book they gave the recipe for Ginger Snaps. I left her to get on with it, while I walked around making a start on my photos, and she did really well. The snaps are really tasty and Emily is so chuffed that she made them on her own. A few photos had to be taken as well ;o)
