A Crafty session making Chocolate Spoons

Becky a blogging friend of mine over at Baby Budgeting recently made chocolate spoons they look so good and are easy to make so I thought I would share her post and recipe with you all! 
Can't wait to try it out with my children. perfect for a snowy and have a hot chocolate themed chocolate spoon weekend!

Go to your local Pound store or supermarket and stock up on plastic spoons. Melt some chocolate in the microwave on 50% power for one minute Stir, and continue melting and checking every 10 seconds and stirring till its smooth. Dip spoons until generously covered with chocolate (a tiny bit fiddly to do …make sure its not too hot.)
Lay them on greaseproofpaeer cool down. You can jazz them up by rolling them in sprinkles or drizzling melted white chocolate on top.
Pop a couple of these with a little pack of hot chocolate in a celllophane and you have a gorgeous visiting gift ( or even a little Christmas gift – I’m thinking teachers, your neighbours, standby gifts etc.)
Happy creating!
(word of warning we ate all the spoons we made within half an hour of them setting…you get chocolate smeared all over your face so everyone knows too!!!)

Thanks for sharing with us Becky x

What an eventful week!

What a broken week it's been for me... 
 It started off with my 11 yo accidentally breaking the glass in my front door

Then our printer decided it wasn't going to talk to my Mac or Laptop so my husband had to give it a good talking too and now they are speaking to each other again :-) 

On Thursday my oven didn't like what I was cooking and set fire to itself... a very scary moment as flames shouted out but fortunately I remembered that flames need oxygen so I switch it off and closed the door! We had a few scary minutes while they died down luckily apart from a new element it all seems ok. 

My Mum was due to fly back from Lanzarote on Thursday the day of the awful winds 
but her airplane broke down, so my babysitter for Friday evening was not going to make it aaahhhh. 

On Friday morning my husband took our 11yo to the bus stop for school and got a blow out and so came home to borrow my car to get to work for the day.... 

 Lily holding the fort at the Christ church pamper and shopping evening in Chislehurst...
she saved the day and managed to organise her family and get to Christ Church for our fair and set up all on her own. Finally when I got my car back I was able to join her for the end of a very successful fair.

So my week really has been all broken!

These are our new ChocoSpell organic fairtrade Gift boxes which were loved by all...
