spinach shrek cake

dairy free with gluten free options 🙂

shrek cake   It has been one helluva week. Hubby ended up in hospital (and is still there now, 3 days on), nothing too serious, but something that needed to be monitored. Hopefully, fingers crossed, he will be out tomorrow. We are so close to the end of the school term, Friday next week is the last day, and I find myself struggling to keep everything together. I even said to Miss E the other day “you only need to read 4 pages of your reader because it’s nearly the end of term”. Complete lie.

Sausage rolls and carrot cake

I’ve noticed lately that my kids seem to be given a lot of lollies and chocolates at school. They won table points, here’s a lollipop. It’s someone’s birthday, here’s a freddo. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely opposed to sugar, I just try to limit how much my kids eat it, and also, make sure that if they are having treats, that they are perhaps home cooked cake or a reasonable quality chocolate. Yesterday my kids had a market day at school, and although I asked them not to buy too much junk food, of course, they loaded up on toffees, smarties, mixed lollies and cakes. I probably would have done the same at their age. >
