Today i did something i've been meaning to do for a long time.....i bought a slow cooker. Boy, does that make me feel old. I've wanted one for ages but sometimes i'm in denial about my age and think i'm just too young to be wanting one of those therefore i will not buy it. But it was £12 in Tesco so i couldn't resist. I gave myself a massive papercut holding the box (and trying to manoeuvre the pram at the same time) in the queue at the till though and felt like crying for the second time that day. The first time being when i actually fell over on the ice outside my house and hurt my hands and my hip. I held it together until i got in the car and then i cried. Falling over is so embarrassing, more so when you're on your own because you have noone to laugh with. I pulled Caleb over with me so he was crying too. Oh im sore tonight! I AM getting old! Anyway...i bought a slow cooker and i'm excited about finding some recipes and trying it out!
Advent day 9. Our activity today was to go on a wintery walk to collect pine cones and holly. We walked all through the woods and didn't find a single a pine cone! Wrong type of trees obviously. We did get some holly branches though. We'll go a different route tomorrow and see if we can find pine cones there. I'm all ready to spray them silver!
My boy likes nothing better than to be outside
