It's finished and it's on his head! I tried his hat on a couple of times as I was going along and it is so-oo-oo snuggly and warm and yumscious and I just might have to cast another one on!
Happy? Yup, we both are :)
And to celebrate, I did a bit of super quick baking - 3 oz of butter, 2 oz sugar, 41/2 oz plain flour, rub together until crumbly crumbly then press into a circular baking tin and put in a hot oven (180 deg) until gently brownily-gold on top -about 10 minutes-ish.
Whilst cooling, prick in a pattern, cut into 'petticoat-tails' and then having decided that as delish as short bread is................melt chocolate and drizzle (a bit too generously in places) on top.
PS in my defence, I only ate one (promise!) and the boys (all three) finished off the other 7 between them.
Aaah - yum yum.
Thank you all for your comments and thoughts as I waffle on, it is lovely to hear what you have been up to as you go along your day.
So - what naughty things have you eaten recently? (Lovely Lady - I am looking at you!)
What 'ta da-as!' have you to declare?
Hope you all are as warm and cozy as Eldest in his Iceland-hat !
And if you have any warm hats to reveal (art teacher girl!?!) - I would love to see them :)
