I've had 2 of those days of what I always thought motherhood would actually be, but hasn't really been. I've finished all my "real" work, and I couldn't care less. I spent the last two days making inexpensive crafts with Catherine. I showed her how to make snow flakes out of paper, and paper chain angels, and today, apart from making scones, we also made some dough decorations which we will paint and varnish tomorrow. It was pretty cool, coz I joined in a made a chair and even a christmas tree for her dolls house!
The recipe for dough is:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Put over a heat, and heat untill it combines, isn't sticky, but not hard.
Cook at a low temperature for an hour (or so).
