Miss Emily is currently deeply concerned with in or out.
So when a cardboard box arrived she decided to take up residence! I did get her out long enough to cut a few holes….
She and the happyland folks have taken up residence…
Tell me please, why did I just buy a house for her happyland people to live in????

Hopefully there’ll be more to follow!

A couple of weeks ago the girlies and I had a child free outing to the knit and stitch show at Kensington Olympia.
Here in no particular order is the show eye candy for you all to stroke!

I’m sure you’re all wondering about my lack of Easter posts…
Easter wasn’t forgotten in the Lewendon house. (and we didn’t just remember the chocolate part either) but there weren’t a lot of Easter crafts. You see the week before we were clearing and packing the camper and then Easter weekend we were away at Santa Pod in the mud and the freezing-ness.
It was worth it. The jet cars were awesome and I think the hovercraft were a real hit too. (Jamie was demonstrating.)
In the midst of it all, here is our muddy Easter Egg hunt!

So it may not be new to you people on the far side of the pond but we’d certainly never tried it…
I found a recipe for snow ice cream here. I had heard it mentioned but never really knew what it was; yet more snow sent me racing to pinterest for stuff to do.
We didn’t use the same ratios as Blooming on Bainbridge but here’s our take on it.
Start by whisking 2 eggs for a loooooooong time.
Add in your milk (we used goats milk as Mummy and Miss Emily can’t have cow’s milk) and sugar and whisk a lot more.
Next you’re gonna need some snow. We used 2 bowls this size!
Slowly mix in the snow…
It turns all ice creamy!!!
Some of us weren’t all that sure about eating snow….
Some of us were rather enthusiastic!
It got all melty very fast…
But we saved some in the freezer for later!

So you remember when it snowed at home we made the snowman and the snowdog and we made art in the snow with squeezy bottles? Well in Switzerland we stepped it up a little. I give you, in glorious technicolour, snow angry birds….
We made them from snow and then ‘painted’ them with food colour and water in a squeezy bottle. The colour faded after 24 hours though.
Terrance and Chuck
See? the piste basher got an outing too.

Here is the rest of the party stuff that I have been promising (threatening?)
On to the decorations. The bunting is just paper with angry birds cut out of wrapping paper and added on. The birds are drawn and painted onto brown paper. There were also pigs but I can’t find a photo.
The party table, again painted banner, and also hideously expensive themed balloons. You gotta have balloons, right? The birds at the back were knitted by my oh so talented Mummy, she’s writing up her patterns and has promised I can post them when she is done. [There are more that didn't fit on there!]
See those buckets on the cake table? They were for our angrybird hunt. I stuck 35 little index pictures of birds (one for each bucket) around the room then each team has to find all 35 of their bird.
Piggy Jelly, what else?
Daddy created covers for the juice boxes too!
We played piggie skittles where you have to knock as many as possible down with 3 bean bags…
And of course the calssic game pin-the-angry-bird-on-the-catapult!
Just in case you missed them…
