Summer Holidays - Day 3

Today we had an outing to the cinema!

Little Lady and her Tiniest Friend downed a bag of popcorn whilst watching......

It was great!

Nice little story and only about an hour long...perfect!

We returned Tiniest Friend home and headed into town with Crafty Friend to buy Playhouse Curtain Fabric.....

Little Lady's choice.  We haven't scheduled in when we will do this, but we have fabric for when we do.

Little Lady took herself off for a nap whilst Crafty Friend and I had a chinwag over a cuppa or 3.

We rounded the day off with a Prawn Stir Fry.  I was quite impressed with my saucy efforts which were:

Light Soy Sauce (about 6 tablespoons)
2 large finely chopped cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons of shaved (from a frozen piece) of ginger
2 teaspoons of dark brown sugar and
1 tablespoon of cornflour
1 tablespoon of Chinese Five Spice powder

I marinated the prawns in this before makes a sort of Chinese Gravy! Yummy.

So now I've caught up with myself I think it's time for a Green Tea and bed.

Nite, nite

  3. Hi Nora. My oldest, who is almost 11 now, adored Thomas and his Friends. I can still remember the names of all the trains who shared a station with him! Looking forward to seeing that pretty fabric whipped up into curtains. My daughter gives you a thumbs up on your flowery choice, too! xoxo Bronwyn (Queen B)
