29th January 2010

Is it just me or has this month just totally flown by ? I can't believe in 2 days time I will have completed a full month of posting every day and then I will have to decide if I am going to continue on through February or not - what do you think , would you like me to?
Some days thinking of things to talk about has been quite hard but soon I will be starting my sewing month and there will definately be more crafty things to talk about. I've finished knitting a couple of little things this month but can't show you yet as I am waiting for a ball of yarn to come through the post so I can actually finish the set - I don't want to show you just bits you see. You are intrigued now aren't you, I can tell .... chuckle.

So today is Friday and Friday means Simones Friday Cake Bake and I have to say her Chocolate Fudge Cake puts me to shame !!
I went for a really hard option today ......

Coconut macaroons with chocolate bits , one of the easiest things to do it has to be said , but once again I didn't get them quite right. I added a bit too much egg white and they are sooooo sticky , tasty but sticky. My report card would say - needs to try harder . Better get the cook books out for next weeks effort.

I did mention the other day that I recieved an award and this is it, lovely isn't it.

This is the Sunshine Award and it was sent to me by Sharon from Bliss Knits . Now this award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blog world... WOW, fancy that, little old me an inspiration, brought a big smile to my face I can tell you. Thank you so much Sharon.
There are rules to go with this award and here they are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post;

2. Pass the award onto 12 bloggers;

3. Link the nominees within your post;

4. Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog;

5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I would find it impossible to pick just 12 as there are so many inspirational people out there so what I am going to say is if you have commented on any of my posts since January 1st then consider this award yours.

See you tomorrow ...

ooh they look tasty. as for posting everyday, no idea how you manage it, 3 days a week is the most I ever achieve, and often less....

Congrats on posting every day. I don't know how you managed it. That takes quite some doing. Yummy Coconut Macaroons, coconut is one of my favorite things. Have a super weekend.
