A Very Puttery Tuesday

herb rack Though I fully intended to cart Finley off to the cinema to see Monsters Inc University today, he has caught an early dose of teenage-itis and wants to spend this, the second day of his Summer holiday, lying on his back issuing orders to his harassed Mama...

Hmmm. Let me make myself clear: I am having none of that. While I might consider it acceptable for my pre-teen monkey to have a few pyjama days at the beginning off his holiday, I for one have got a list as long as my arm of puttery things I want to achieve over the next few weeks so while he is lazing and scooting and x-boxing and practicing his slightly dodgy handwriting, I shall be planning the kind of days that will hopefully coax him out of this beloved house occasionally and doing all the teeny little lovelies I have long had on my mission list of puttery treats...

And so today there has been strawberry and almond muffins, cheery cherry cordial lolly ices, a new bed for the kitten fashioned from an empty drawer and the herb drying rack you see above. Tomorrow there will a salt and pepper set fashioned from the teeniest blue gingham topped kilner jars, store-cupboard hummus and ex-libris labels popped inside the gorgeous set of leather backed classics I acquired at the recent school books sale...

Finn, no doubt, will spend his day battling Arkham City and begging for another lolly ice.

All is as it should be, m'dears.
