The first of our constructions this week was a dump and go pudding
from Sarah at abeachcottage.
And hard to resist for we carb free dieters around here.
I'm practicing that saying.
'Everytime you say no you are strengthening your will power just like a muscle.'
It's being used on anti -smoking ads around here.
It works for me in saying no to sweet things too.
Miss MDK can now make it with very little help.
Though her little brother wants to be there every step of the way.
He's saying use maple syrup! Use maple syrup!
Which is his favourite, but her's is golden syrup.
And I keep saying use jam! Use jam!
I'm trying to convince her to use smaller quantities and make it in a teacup or small bowl so there are no leftovers to tempt the dieters around here!
The second construction activity was the new BBQ.
We ordered in the Weber 320 Q.
It came all deconstructed and packed tightly into a huge box.
Of course it arrived on the day that the main construction man was going away on an overnight excursion.
So the little man and I utilised his new tools and toolbox to put it all together.
Then he skipped out as I put the finishing touches on it and fired it up.
I suprised myself in the speed with which I got it all together, seeing as the instructions had no words just pictures. In the end I couldn't find 2 pieces that were meant to attach the handle.
I figured that they must have built it into another piece because it just was not to be found in that box!
Anyway, nothing melted when I cooked dinner.
It's been non stop rain around here.
Everything is damp or wet.
The growth of lawn, weeds and mushrooms is amazing and extreme.
But then the plants think it is Spring again and do this.
