One Hundred Posts, An Award And A New Approach To Eating Soup....

First of all, this is my 100th post!! Woohoo!! Blimey I do ramble some, don't I?

In celebration of this fact I am going to give away a bundle of Daisie Davies Original Handmade Goodies. Haven't decided what yet so leave me a comment by this time next week on this post and I'll randomly choose one (ie: "Francesca, choose a number between one and ....") of you and there will be a lovely surprise coming your way courtesy of good old fashioned snail mail. Please check back next Sunday to see if you've won and then drop me an email with your home address.

More exciting news, Tip Top has given me an award because, and I quote; "Just because you make me smile and giggle when I least expect it." Glad to have been of service! And keeping that thought in mind I'd like to pass the award onto Jenny, Scary Mommy, Kelcey and Twiggy. You make me laugh, give me inspiration and an alternative look at life that I really love.

Also wanted to show you that we have found an alternative use for knitting needles;

And the new approach to eating soup was discovered by Nathaniel. The fun he had with the sweet potato soup I made for lunch today was amazing to watch. He was very hungry when we sat down to eat so ate the first half of the bowl in record time. Stopped. Did an amazingly huge burp and continued with his toast but turned away from any more soup. I took my bowl in the kitchen and tidied around while the children finished off. This is what greeted me on my return to the dining room;

He had finished the soup and licked the bowl clean!!

The look on his face has made me think that perhaps we should all eat soup in this manner?!

Looking forward to reading all the comments later!!

hahaha! Pure enjoyment! Reminds me of the first time I baked cakes with Evie and asked her if she wanted to lick the bowl out... She didn't use spoon, spatula or finger - she just went in - face first!! I agree with you, I wish it was acceptable for adults to do it sometimes ;o)
Please can I play at the giveaway game? Thanks...

Homemade goodies? Sounds yummy! Since I can finally fit into all of my pre-pregnancy clothes, I think it's about time to let loose on some calorie-rich goodness. Count me in!

What a grand surprise to be all bleery-eyed, right before I shut the computer down for the night, but first decide to see what is going on across the Atlantic- to find I have won an award! What a way to end the day, that just warms the heart.
I would love to play in your giveaway too- what fun!
