The other day we were at home not doing very much when the doorbell rang and there was one of Amelie’s really cute little friends with a valentines day card for her. Bless them they were both so excited.
As soon as we got back inside she was on my case about making her a valentines day gift too. She insisted on making her friends some biscuits and a card – the numbers started to grow but in the end we limited it to two of her little school friends.
With Harriet’s refusal to sleep it meant baking with them together. We found a recipe that Amelie liked the look of and split it in two – so they had half each.
Not much of Harriet’s made it as far as the oven. She either ate it, wore it or thew it on the floor however she had a lovely time creating a huge mess. At one point she was eating handfuls of pure spread and flour. Yum!!! She was covered quite literally from head to toe. We also had lots of tears when we eventually came to putting the remains of her biscuit dough into the oven.
Both of her friends were out so we left them hanging on their doors for when they got home. A bit later that evening she had a text message (on my phone) from one of her little friends saying thank you. You should have seen the beaming smile she went to bed with.
