Stratford Park abstracts…

A great day out at Stratford Park with the boys. Clear and bright with an autumn nip in the air – lots of good direct sunshine with shadows everywhere! The leaves are starting to turn and fall from the trees and my favourite time of the year : )

Classic apple pie…

This is a GREAT apple pie recipe…

Really nice balance between the tangy apple flavours and the soft and crispy pastry. Awesome with custard too : )

Ultimate apple pie recipe – Recipes – BBC Good Food

I altered the recipe shown on the BBC site a little bit, from the first time I tried this a month or so ago. The last time I followed the instructions and prepared 1KG of cooking apples, but found this was way too much and would have led to a huge amount of filling compared to pastry.

For the latest pie, I used 800g as I prefer more of a balance between the crispy pastry but 900g would work well too.

Ikea – the home of crazy fabrics…!

Which one to choose? Some very nice fabrics at Ikea and the chips and gravy is the best!

imac issues…

Here’s a picture drawn by Jamie showing that we can’t use the mac at the moment! It’s having all sorts of issues loading things up and it’s off to the repair shop.

The drawing shows Daddy, Mummy + Jamie and Jac, with the mac and a big cross over it. No blogging for a while me thinks. : ( I’ll just have to back-date a whole load of posts!

Paint and ink patterns…

As Jac was painting, he was mixing up the different colours in the trays and he created some cool effects. I also tried some ink art, using straws to blow the ink around the page.
