Doughnut Cakes

Today, Penny and I cooked doughnut cakes which are absolutely calorie free (in my mind). They are delicious and so easy. We enjoyed a delicious lunch out at a local cafe today so no doughnut cakes until we got home.
Nick and Penny have made friends with the kids over the back fence and they have a pool so N & P were over there for 2hrs this afternoon swimming and playing. They did same last weekend. The boys seem to come and go between our houses but Nick tells me there place is way cooler with swings, trampoline and pool!
On the Friday before last we went to the Sherwood Community Festival where they close off the street and have stalls and three stages. The kids had their faces painted for free and Penny loved the baby farm animal enclosure - also free. We watched the Sherwood Arrows skipping team and Nick enjoyed the Tae-Kwon-Do. Penny's favourite was the Irish Dancing, another skill she wishes to acquire.

On the Saturday night, Craig and I attended a friend's 40th at a local Indian restaurant and had a delicious meal and a great night out. The kids also had a great night in with a lovely new babysitter.
I've been trying to get on top of the Christmas shopping before school breaks up.
I have also been doing a bit of scrapbooking lately and have many LO's to show. Here are a couple:
 I just love Washi tape (Japanese masking tape) at the moment as featured in the LO above - pink and white spot. I buy it on-line from a lady in WA - Sawyer's Place is her business name. I now have about 17 rolls with a few more on the way. She regularly has Facebook or blog specials - $3 for a 15m roll.

Have a good week.
