what have I been feeding my boys!!!

Veges and meat! Willy really loves eating what we eat, so he has been having what we have for dinner. At the moment, since it is cold, we are having meals cooked in the slow cooker, so they are easy to breakdown and he loves it. He LOVES food. He sees food, he starts making his Im hungry sounds, the grunts and squeaks. He hasnt been introduced to chocolate, I wont be doing that until he is a little older, as I dont want him to enjoying that too much and not eat his food.

The above photo of the food is one of the slow cooked meals I made. It was all eaten! Hubby had some for work and then it was all gone.

its cold outside baby

The temp has dropped so much. It was just above freezing this morning. So I have better work faster on my crocheting and knitting.
What Im working on...
I have started a knitted fingerless mitten for Miles, I am up to the part in the pattern where I have to do FBF (Front Back Front) knit, I find this a bit confusing, but will give it a go. I hope to have it finished sometime soon.
I also have started a little tank top for Willy, I started working on it a few days ago, and hopefully I will be able to get this finished sometime in the next week.

Projects that have gone by the side are a scarf for my father. I will work on it soon.
Projects that I want to complete in the coming months:
  • doily cal
  • knitted beanie
  • crocheted beanie/hats
  • socks
  • Mystery cal
  • dishcloths
  • tawashis
  • bookmarks
  • squares
  • Secret Pal
I think I have most of this covered.

On the first of May, HPKCHC starts, so I am sure that I will be able to do a few of those projects within the classes that will be offered.

Miles finally learnt to eat with chopsticks...he is so proud of himself!
Willy is proud of himself too, he has his toes and a full tummy!

the rain has finally come...kind of

For the past couple of days, we have had a steady downpour of rain. No thunderstorm or lightening, just rain. The ground is soaked and my chokoes are growing like mad! We picked a few and they were over a kilogram in weight for about 3 of them. At the stores they are selling between $A5-9 per kilo. Im sitting on a gold mine then...lol but I have been giving them away to whoever wants some. I havent even gone through the whole lot of choko plants to see how many I have there. But I have been using them in my cooking, and they are great soup fillers too. It has been getting cold here, so soup will soon be on the dinner menu.

Crocheting and knitting
Having participated in the HPKCHC or House Cup for the last 3 months, I have been kind of busy. April is the rest period before the next round of classes start in May. I am looking forward to it, and hoping to be back in Slytherin house. I have been practicing my knitting and it has been a lot of fun. I have managed to try my hand at lace knitting, and made a few interesting little projects. If you want to play and crank out a few projects come and join in the fun. Just become a member of Ravelry and then click onto join HPKCHC and then choose your teams. Sorting out of teams will happen at the end of the month, and then the games start in May.

Miles has discovered the game of UNO! He loves it, I brought it cos I have been playing it online and it looked so easy, and now every time William is sleeping, Miles wants to play it. It can be fun, but sometimes, he just drives us crazy with wanting to play it, he doesnt like to loose, just win. lol
