We Made Easter Nests, Edible Ones!

Yes, although I am not really an Easter fan we made edible Easter nests with Pops this week, so she could take the to playgroup and share them with her friends (much to her dismay)

So here is our nest journey in photos, please bear in mind my Sister made us do in it our jammies so we didn’t have to get changed twice, now that is logic.

The great thing about these chocolate crispes is they contain no actual chocolate! MEGA!

1 Good Tablespoon of margarine

4 Tablespoons of icing sugar

2 tablespoons of golden syrup

Put into pan together until it just starts to boil, don’t let it boil though, then add 2 sieved tablespoons of cocoa powder, mix together then quickly add the shredded wheat (or if its not Easter rice crispies) then stir and add to paper cases! Done!

Let them cool, (or if you are me eat them ASAP) then you ave some yummy treats, we added mini eggs and little chicks for that extra nesty effect 🙂

Don’t forget to share the yummy love below 😉

Dear Play Group,

Dear Play Group,

Why are we waiting until next week before the kids go back? I mean I see no harm in starting early?

If anything, I feel the parents children would benefit from it. Yes, of course I will miss her incessant shouting and requests for things when I get comfy, however I am prepared to let you deal with this, generous I know.

Of course I am not desperate  these tears are simply due to hay-fever,  yes hay-fever in the winter is terribly common. 

I am aware it has just been Christmas and New Year, however, to be fair, it is no longer Christmas or New Year, granted its terribly close but all the same, its not still that season.

That season is over. 

No there is no tone to my voice, I am just terribly desperate excited at the fact she would be coming back to play school, with you, early, with you.


Okay! So you don’t take bribes, chill.

Why don’t you just go inside, get the toys out and watch the children as they play, scream, shout and fight?



(if you share in my feelings, why not share this post 🙂 )
