If March was the month of here, there and everywhere, with many miles travelled during those 31 days, then April has been the month of staying close to home.
I walked this path, by the river, 17 times. It leads to the library and Waitrose, but you can also loop around and end up in town near the Post Office, which I have visited on 12 occasions this month….
...posting out parcels to customers, which each included a tag, from the 12 I made...
…and log cabin blocks for the Friendship Quilt. One late and one with perfect timing. Can you guess who this was for?
I made 10 of these cards, 2 each of 5 colours, with different sentiments, to add to some of the Happy Mail I sent…
…and 7 of these little chaps for my nieces and nephews this Easter.*
I cut 54 kits. 6 each for 9 ladies, across the 2 classes in April. Including these two.
Mostly, I enjoyed 18 days of my children at home, which meant *not* having to make packed lunches on those 12 weekdays. We could have hot lunches, like quesadillas. Have our cooked meal in the middle of the day: homemade chicken fillet burgers, chips and onion rings. Enjoy beetroot sandwiches, without the bread going soggy and “Two ingredient” cookies** warm from the oven.
Well, it wouldn’t be a proper MiN post from me, without a few gratuitous foodie pictures thrown in, would it?
* Instructions for the bunny lollipop holders can be found here.
** Recipe (if you can call it that!) for the cookies came from this blog.
