Why is it when you have spent hours cleaning the car or the windows, it either rains heavily or a bird passes by and decides to excrete all over your lovely clean surfaces!
Someone is having a laugh! Not only that, but I've also had to contend with the blossom from the trees blowing down my street and congregating on said clean windows and car. Does Mother Nature think I have an extra 2.5 hours to spare all over again tomorrow?!
Can anyone recommend a cleaner, or tarpaulin big enough to cover the house!
I have been a little pre-occupied recently. My son has just had his 5th birthday and I had a few of his friends over on his birthday and then a massive party the following day. It's taken me all this time to get over it and clean the house!
Anyway, I just wanted to show you my first attempt at a spongebob squarepants cake topper for his cake (he had asked for a Spongebob themed cake).
I made this over a couple of evenings, I could have done it in one sitting but it's near impossible when there is a little one to look after!
Well, enough babbling, here it is. My first Spongebob cake topper! Oh, I also made Patrick, but I forgot to take a picture of it!
I know I should have done his eyes properly but I was soooo tired :(
Remember those slushies we use to have as kids (even our own kids love them, so they must be good!). I bought one last year at a theme park and was amazed at how expensive they were and how many additives were added in to it. It tasted horrendous (must be my age!)
Anyway...with the ChillFactor Slushy Maker you can make your own slushy, with whatever chilled drink you want. I opted for fresh juice (pineapple and apple fresh juice). It was so easy to make and the fights we had over who's turn it was next to taste was hilarious. Let's just say it was a huge hit, but I think we need to invest in a few more now!
To get a delish slushy all you need to do is put the cup in the freezer until it has frozen (don't be too eager and and take it out before it has fully frozen, like I did the first time!). Pour in your chosen CHILLED drink (fruit juice, cordial, fizzy drink etc.) Then, just squeeze the cup. The ice for the slushy starts appearing before your eyes (or should I say 'ice'!). It takes about 30 seconds of squeezing to get the right consistency. The cup comes with a 'spraw' (spoon/straw).
Washing the cup is easy too. The actual cup just needs to be washed by hand in soapy water and the other parts (lid and rims) are dishwasher safe. Then it can go straight back into the freezer for the next drink!
The slushy maker is perfect for the warmer weather....just make sure you have enough to go around!

I've been racking my brains trying to think of some gifts to buy various people. I love internet shopping (means I can shop in my pjs!) and I was searching the web and came across the Black and Chrome website.
This site sells all little gifts and gadgets, aimed at children, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunties.....oh you get the picture!
I bought a few items from them, not really sure what they would be like with delivery etc. I have to say I was really impressed. I bought the Tetris Lamp for a friend's child and the his and hers key holders for a couple who bought a new house. The delivery was great and the products were really good and a lovely price.
I'm definitely adding them to my favourites list! Try them out for yourself, mother's day is fast approaching!
