bare feet, scratched knees and mud pies!

On a quiet afternoon in a little corner of our garden (where we soon hope to build a cottage cubby house!) two little chefs made mud pies.
During their adventures they...

~uncovered many earthworms - just fascinating!
~discovered the best ratio of mud to water for the sloppiest mudpie consistency
~imagined picnic menus
~ Pondered over scratched knees and marvelled at how quickly they were getting better
~and requested new ingredients (I even agreed to my last two organic eggs being used...hopefully a one off request!)
Care to try some???
Meanwhile, I am in the process of making a different sort of pie, not a pie actually, but a Christmas pudding! Yum! My first (grandma's recipe), so I hope it turns out!


  1. Oh, Denise! You have such an eye for capturing these precious little moments. What a gift. You clever thing ☺. J x

  2. Pi and Ella can't wait to get into your garden and make some mud pies with their cousins! They look soooo tempting! Can't wait to see you all soon. x Priscilla
