Mixed up migraine head....

....so I woke up today with a banging head and went downstairs for some tablets and an hours peace and quiet before the kids woke up.....yeah right ...Ben must have heard me sneaking down.

Anyway I carried on with my morning like normal because what else can you do when you have a little one at home. I vacuumed and moved the table and shook the rug and took my curtains down for washing, then I started to bake this recipe that Mark was going to make with some left over pastry from yesterdays Quiche....(I buy my pastry!! Oh yes I can't make it and have given up on it am so NOT ashamed there are worse things in life to worry about and at least I can make Yorkshire puddings because the bought ones are gross!)

So I lined my tin to blind bake my flan case and there was a little pastry left over so I thought I know I'll make a small cornflake tart.....then when I took the flan cases out I poured the cornflake tart into the wrong sized one so now I have a huge cornflake tart and a small pastry jam sponge thing that is probably going to overflow in my oven......not that it matters I haven't cleaned that for years!! It's on my to do list!!



Summer may be over but look at this butterfly I found in my garden!!



I thought I'd show you a sneak peek...it's a few weeks away but I am so excited and you really need to get the feel of this Enchanted Christmas kit so that you rush out and buy it from Bubbly Funk.....cause hey guys it's Prima need I say any more!!


Got to dash I can smell the oven and that normally means it's burnt!
Update on baking: The pastry is an undercooked disaster I might as well have had a bowl of cornflakes and poured milk all over them!!

Love and butterflies

Hi Ruth! So Sorry about the headache:( I can sooo relate to not being able to be sick, especially when you have a little one. Blame the pastry on the headache my friend! It is so deflating when you put so much work into a meal and it doesn't work out...... Oh well, next time!!
Love the butterfly:)
Take Care
Hugs
