Last week we received a letter from the school that Riley will be going to about school visits .... that's right, in just a few short months my little boy will be turning 5 and we'll be starting a whole new adventure.
When I first started this blog he was two and a half ....
There has been a lot of short making going on in blog land this month and even though it's winter here I thought I'd get in on the action and make a start on Riley's summer wardrobe. I don't usually make clothes, mainly because I've never had much success at it, but by the time Summer comes around Riley will have started school and he's going to need heaps of clothes.
I was at Spotlight last weekend so I took the opportunity to have a good dig through the fabrics on their clearance table (there's no point in me making clothes if it would be cheaper and easier to just buy them). I came away with 3 meters of fabric for $16. For this pair of shorts I added pockets but if I left them out then I'd be able to get 2 pairs of shorts out of a meter. Not bad really ....
It wasn't until after I'd made them that I realized that the colour isn't very practical. When I bought the fabric all I was thinking about was how cool it would look as a pair of shorts. The print is skull and cross bones, perfect for wearing to a pirate party this weekend ....
If you love bananas then this recipe is for you! Better yet you only need a couple of ingredients.
Put your frozen banana in a food processor.
Pulse until it all breaks up.
Add as much vanilla as you'd like and continue to process until it's smooth and creamy ( if it gets stuck scrape down the sides and keep going).
I'm not a fan of banana's but I make this for both Riley and Phil and it is the easiest thing ever. It's particularly great for Riley because he thinks he's eating ice cream when all it is is frozen banana! I make sure to keep a few bags of frozen bananas in the freezer and it takes less than a minute to throw together.
