Sugar Skulls
I made some Sugar Skulls tonight using the mould I ordered from Mexican Sugar Skulls. I love them so much but I doubt that I'll eat them as they're far too sugary. I'm just going to give them all a...


We finally caught mousey this morning. She's sooooo tiny and really cute. We'd seen her wandering around a couple of times so we set out some traps. We're keeping her in a plastic box and feeding h...

Baby Seagulls
There's a seagull on our roof that has had a nest there for the last few months. Her babies hatched a couple of weeks ago and now they have started to walk around. They are so cute and fluffy.
