Christmas starting

Mince pies!
I normally take some to work, we are sharing with friends tomorrow and, despite the flour and sugar involved, we might have a couple as well.
Having one gluten free child and grandma means we will experiment with pastry, but the nicest gf pastry has nuts in, which rules out another child. Plus, Flower has been absolutely thriving on sugar/sweetener free, grain free- basically meat and veg and homemade soups, casseroles and stirfrys.
Being away this last week was tough, and it was very noticable that we weren't sticking to the diet. Flower gets really emotional and struggles with transitions, noise, tiredness, you name it. We started off doing the GAPS intro diet, but we are definately more GAPS inspired than actually strictly sticking to it.

I'm not quite ready to share our plans for the future out here. We have a definate idea of moving, and where exactly we want to be ( lovely neighbours and a house and garden so utterly exceeding my wish list I think I must be dreaming) but I'm waiting to hear about the work side of things. None of it can happen without the job, and the waiting to hear will be a long slow process, especially with Christmas and New I'm trying very hard to put it out of my head. While also wondering about getting moving quotes.Sigh.

Busy busy

We have been away for a few days, finding new possibilities and opportunities. We have some really difficult decisions to make ( I hope, I think) and we've also had some fun. We had a day at morwellham quay yesterday, which was used as the set for one of the girls favourite programmes ' Edwardian Farm'.

Ive been busy with a few different things, work possibilities that are still up in the air, but for now here's some makings.
Flower filled the jars for these cookie mixes, and made lip balm. Princess made some moisturiser bars, and has so many plans I'm very curious to see what happens, but for now shes finished a scarf for herself. Ah, but can't upload the photos. Typical.
The crochet squares will be a blanket, but too late for this Christmas. Hopefully a January present, but I'll have to keep very busy!
