"Cinderella" - Elizabeth style...

Most little 5 year olds love princesses. They love pretending to be princesses, dressing in pretty flouncy dresses, wearing tiaras, bossing people around, just generally being a princess.

So, when Elizabeth said she wanted to pretend to be Cinderella, that's what I was expecting.

But of course my daughter won't be standard, she loves to do things all in her own way, she's really an individual...

Elizabeth's interest in Cinderella was more about doing the washing! So she got a lesson in how to take the dry washing out of the dryer, transfer the clean washing out of the machine and into the dryer and then turn it on, pop a load into the washing machine, pour in a scoop of powder, select the correct temperature and water levels and get the machine going.

She then swept the floor and wiped up a couple of dirty spots with a wet wipe.

Now, if only she'd keep her room clean in the same way!!! :D

Rainbow-y Yumminess

Well, I guess you've all figued out by now that a weekly photo of myself just isn't going to happen regularly! LOL

So I guess I'll just return to my usual sporadic posting whenever the whim hits me to share a little bit on my poor neglected blog!

If you're after someone who's posting semi-regularly (and posting some very YUMMY stuff!), head on over to my MUMMY'S BLOG to have a good look around. Be sure to comment how lovely the background is seeing I created it for her! LOL

Today I'll just show off my own yummy creations... RAINBOW CUPCAKES!

They were so darned easy to make too, but oh so yummy. Packet cake mix, butter cream icing with half tinted blue and half kept white, and some yummy rainbow sour straps I found in our local Big W...
