So...losing the first tooth

A week or so ago Bear complained his teeth felt funny while he was eating an apple, I thought maybe he had got some apple skin stuck between them or something so had a look and lo and behold he had his very first wobbly tooth.

Then on Monday this week I happened to pop out to a book sale and when I returned I was greeted with tooth in hand, it had come out easy as pie while he was wrestling his blanket lol.

I have to admit being pretty unprepared, I thought it would be a few years still before teeth started falling out, and that once the tooth was wobbly it would take a bit longer to actually fall out.

But here we were with a tooth and no clear idea what to do to celebrate, would we use the tooth fairy, the tooth mouse, or was that perpetuating a myth and lying to our children?  Yes these kind of things concern me.
So we asked Bear, and he told us that the tooth fairy had to come and collect his tooth, but if she was busy she could send a mouse.
So that was that and the tooth fairy stopped by later that night, taking with her one little tooth and leaving behind a trail of footprints & fairy dust, a small pile of coins, a note, and one very happy little boy :)

4. & 5. The many faces of Evie
6. Trying to get one of us together but she wouldn't look at the camera
7. & 8.  The kids loved this cart on another of our outings, so I looked into them and nearly fainted when I priced them, so they will be cartless for a while longer!

The kids love it when I make them babycinos at home, with a few colourful sprinkles on top :)

29/52 - Mouse House

I've had this little vintage school case lying around for a bit and the inside needed some attention.  I finally got round to relining the interior and created a little home for my baby girl's mice.  I want to add more furniture as I go.

28/52 - Special Toasted Cheese

I have a thing for cookbooks, I really like them :)
And one of my favourites is a follow on from a book which is sadly currently out of print, every recipe I've made out of it has been a success, it's beautifully illustrated and it's local!
I've been looking for it's predecessor for a while now but recently came across a second hand copy and decided to bite the bullet and get it.
It arrived just in time for lunch and I decided to try out the recipe for a special toasted cheese sandwich...and as usual I was not disappointed, the sandwich was delicious!
