The miracle of.......

I made playdough today - i haven't made it in the longest time. Darren went to play bowls so I got busy making playdough, banana cake and lemon butter but anyway back to the playdough - it truely was a miracle - 4 quiet happy children amusing themselves without fighting. Pity it didn't last just a little longer lol.

My Playdough Recipe
2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
2tbsn oil
food colouring
4 tsn cream of tartar
2 cups water

mix all together in pot and cook until it all comes together in a ball. Then I normally knead it a little to smooth it out a bit. And there you have it the magic miracle provider of a little quiet time :)

Children love to create with playdough, don't they. What beautiful weather for sitting outside enjoying themselves. Tell Delaney she has got a bit of talent there with the camera, you never know she may make a great photographer one day.

she is so artistic it really wouldn't surprise me if she became rich and famous at one of her talents - as long as she looks after her mum LOL
thankyou for your lovely comments Sue - it is always nice to know I'm not talking to myself here :D
