More like Chicks, chick biscuits to be exact.
Today I had a really busy but positive day, much better than yesterday! The chick biscuit above was a present from two members of my GCSE class who thoughtfully bought me a snack to the after school club I have been running in order for them to finish off their GCSE coursework. They went for this biscuit as I have given up chocolate for lent! So thoughtful.
I must say I am never ceased to be amazed by the youngsters I teach, not just because they buy me biscuits!!, I admire their determination and the hard work they have to put in. So although they will not read this I wish them all luck for their final weeks finishing work.
Watch this space for Sock Monster creations......coming soon!
Also on the mat was this little treasure my order from Michala of KAYLACOO. Even the envelope was beautifully adorned with this sketch.
I carefully unwrapped my gorgeous little broach all lovingly sent with ribbon and snippets of lace!! How very thoughtful!!
So after seeing this delight in a glossy mag I thought right........ Lets do a Nigella and get cracking...eggs...cracking see what I did there! Anyway enough... I decided to create a Victoria Sandwich. Surely the reason jam was invented I say!
I'm sort of impressed...well sort of. I guess the proof is in the eating just wasn't quite the picture I wanted its a bit wonky and slightly over cooked.
Whilst I was getting creative in the kitchen I noticed my Madeline tin my nan got me for Christmas! (Thanks nan X). So I thought Id give them a whirl.
But sods law mine got a wee bit stuck!!
So if there is anyone with a penchant for these French little delights and your able to get them out the tin without smashing their delicate little sides just let me know how you do it PLEASE!!
They do taste nice though, I will have to retire now as I have eaten 5 and feel quite tired!! That and the fact I still need to dash to HOBBY CRAFT to obtain the shopping list my GCSE candidates have given me!
Oh and if anyone has a minute maybe you can check out my Art teachers FLICKR site. She was so ace when I was at School it was my all time favourite subject.
Bless! Have a good week everyone ! X
