The lovely Vonnie over at Nowt Special set a suitably autumnal prompt about jumping in puddles or leaf piles; so I thought I would do The Week That Was Instagrammed - the first of this post theme for me and, as a great form of social media, also a HUGE guilty pleasure. I hope you enjoy!!
This week I've really noticed a lot of changes in Daisy's developments. She is now fully crawling and, with that, her interraction is getting stronger and her strong-willed nature is really starting to show through! We spent Wednesday with Daisy's Nana and Aunty Debbie and she was enthralled with the birds on show at a local garden centre!
It's been a great week for creativity too - I've been beavering away with my gnome orders and on Monday, I made my first batch of Lamingtons, an Australian delight made from vanilla sponge, chocolate and coconut. They were gorgeous, but slipped a little too easily into the mouth too! I used a simple recipe from Fay Ripley's book - they were quick to make and take about 45 minutes in the oven to bake. They got the official seal of approval from My OH (chief-taster) and my bestie!
We also launched our Halloween projects over at #CraftBlogClub - and I introduced Lestat the Bat! A little felt creature I managed to put together, with amazing help from my boyfriend - when I had to admit defeat with teaching myself crochet! There have been some amazing projects linked up this week and the link is open for another couple of days - so please join in and link your #CraftBlogClub challenges up!

Our Halloween was quiet this year - Mr P was out playing a gig and Daisy seems a little too young for trick or treating (something I never did as a child).
We took a lovely walk to our park - it was wonderful to see the seasons changing again and I didn't dress up, though from some of the looks we got, you'd have thought I had! By the way - I'm sporting my new velvet dress - a mere 99p from eBay and a new plum lipstick purchase! A change from my staple red - but I like this darker lip for winter !
