::: Diamond Jubilee :::


Okay, so I'm not the greatest at making crowns with icing sugar, 
but this weekend is Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee.


And I decided I'd make some fairy cakes to celebrate, I'm not a big Royal Family fan but I watched Wills and Kate's wedding and thought I'd do my bit for the Jubilee too.



What are you doing to celebrate?

::: Apricots and Blueberries :::



I know what you're all thinking - what's the big deal about apricots and blueberries - am I right?

I, never in my life, had an apricot or a blueberry until this week. And I am a vegetarian. Crazy huh?

Sure, I've had them in stuff. Blueberry muffins and apricot yoghurt, so I assumed they would taste kind of the same. But no, they really, really don't.

I like the apricots, I ate lots of them.

The blueberries were a different story altogether.

Yes I liked them, but only the sweet ones, I was having lots of them and thinking yum! but then I came across a sour one and figured they were not for me.

Next on my list are mangoes, peaches and plums.

2012 is definatly the year to try new things, if I don't do it now then I never will.

::: Progress :::

We've reached the halfway point and more!

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

The Scottish SPCA are a great charity who do their best to rehome unwanted and abandoned animals. 

Keep it up!

::: Ballet Class :::




So this week I did something a little out of the ordinary. I went to a ballet class. I expected it to be jam packed full of skinny people who knew what they were doing and floating elegantly around the room. 


As a matter of fact it was just me and another lady along with the teacher. 


I was a bit of a bumbling fool and felt like a stampeding elephant at times but I got compliments and encouragement and managed to do some tricky moves.


I'm still not sure what a pliĆ© is nor have I remembered all the positions but it was good fun and I'm hoping more and more people go along to it.


And yes I know these are not ballet pumps but these are the dance shoes I've used for years when I was learning Irish and Jazz. I do have a white pair of ballet pumps somewhere as I wore them to my wedding, I wonder where they will be hiding?

::: Running Late :::



So, I was driving along minding my own business at 6.30am the other day and bam! 

Flat tyre!

But I am please to say it's now fixed and our little car is back on the road, phew!

::: Cakes, Cakes, Cakes :::

Cakes, cakes and more cakes!


Gorgeous 'black bottomed' cakes from my Hummingbird Bakery book. 
They are so delicious! They are a bit like a brownie with icing, yum!


Vanilla sponge with lemon centre and icing.

I've had a productive couple of days!

::: Corner of my Home :::


Summer is here and the plants are flowering all over the house again, it's such a satisfying feeling. 

Remember this little flower? And Sally the Penguin? 

I don't know about you but I'm off out so soak up some rays before heading to work. 

Have a good day!

::: Skydive :::

Okay, the world and his wife have already called me mad so you've no reason to do that because I know I am and that's fine.

My name is Hannah and I'm jumping out of a plane for charity!

As you know, I love my animals and have decided to raise some money for the SSPCA by doing a sponsored skydive in June.

I'll be climbing 10,000 feet then falling at an incredible 120mph! Phew!

And I can't wait!

Please give as little or as much as you can, every penny helps:

::: Freedom :::



Our little chickens are finally big enough to be let loose in the big run, just in time for the beginning of May and they are loving it!
