Made pretty fairy babywearing pocket

So the other week I made a baby wearing pocket to fit on a wrap or a ssc.

I chopped a size 6 wrap to a size 4 and made a matching pocket with some of the wrap scrap before I send them off to the mama that bought it.

Adding a few pictures of the pretty fairy pocket. X

I made a Kiwi Flan

Well today I made a Kiwi Flan.

Hmmm can’t wait for dessert.

If anyone wants to make one like it to here is how it’s done.

Buy a large Flan base or make if you got time.

Then make the custard :
I use 500ml of milk with 5-6 very heaped teaspoons of custard powder and 2-3 tea spoons of sugar to get the more solid consistence for the base.

Measure milk, put a bit in a mug with the sugar and custard powder while the milk is starting to heat up. Keep stirring the mix in the mug until the milk starts to boil. (Have it on a low flame to hear slowly and not burn) then add the mix the the milk and keep stirring slowly until you see bubbles coming up, turn off now.

Wait a minute to cool a bit before adding to flan base, make sure there is still a little gap on the edge and not up to the top (you might have left over, a toddler comes in handy here to help dispose of those once cooled a little)

Now cut and peel the kiwi with a small sharp knife.
Cut both ends first then in thin slivers cut the peel off from one end to the other. You will need about 3 kiwis medium- large size, they need to be at the point where they start to get soft when gently squeezed. Then cut into slices and top the flan with them.

Now you can either serve it like that or add the jelly topping to it. You can use any jelly if you like or the ones sold for this purpose, but whatever you choose quick setting is best, you could also just use jelly powder or sheets with some fruit juice.

Again once prepared leave to cool for a moment so it doesn’t just run off the sides. Now add the jelly with a table spoon, starting with topping the fruit pieces then slowly filling in gaps then up to the edge and then if you got spare carefully just top it up from the middle gently spreading from there.

Leave to set and enjoy eating it. If you want to be very indulgent you can add some whipped cream too when serving up.

baby is growing up but babywearing keeping her my tiny squirt.

well I haven’t been on here in a while, so thought I should pop back today while having a little break from my monumental jumper I am making for the other half (extra long and xl) we are still using cloth, in fact I have just received a cute purple and teal owls nappy all ready for halloween, lol.

Anyhoo, my baby is getting big, sniff can’t believe how time flies she s walking a few steps unaided now, it feels like yesterday that she was born. due to almost no hair that is only just sprouting she still looks like my baby tho, my tiny squirt. wish they would stay tiny forever, sigh.

but we have taken to baby wearing in spring and man do I love it at this time of year my baby is not just lovely and close to me but she also keeps me toasty and warm while on my back.Image

Vaccinations

Well today I was not just insulted by who I think might be an internet troll but also spreads lies about vaccinations!

Now said person apparently lives in US but we are in UK and most members of the group this was discussed in.

She believes in urban myths about vaccines containing mercury and other heavy metal as well as pork and dead embryo cells and horse etc that list goes on.

Now all those apparent ingredients she got off an un-scientific website and some that believes you can vaccinate agains being gay, yes that kinda lunatic posting this and she believes it.

she states that she didn’t have vaccines for her children after 3 and 4 years which is most of them anyway that matter to start with due to religious reasons now asked about her religion gives that she is muslim so the pork thing comes in here.

well its not porky at all they are egg based and for people that are allergic to this there are alternatives and you would know this if you did your research or simply asked the correct question at your doctors.

Now when given this information she gets all defensive rude and abusive and all this frankly put me off the whole group when some admin agree with her when I say those ingredients are lies just as some other member did state those are lies and then goes on about but how do you know nhs tell the truth they re in it for the money, yes sure thats why they are free to us and of course get doctors get paid for giving them its a job!

she also reckoned that she was not informed that the vaccinations on the UK are not compulsory. well I was asked if I was going to have them for my babies and not told to. I was also informed that I could refuse MMR and have the injections separate but would have to pay out of my own pocket.

Now the next discussion is the autism link it is not proven and the study in question was a big fat lie!

I also got more flak for pointing out that not vaccinating has led to 2 people at least dying in the UK recently in the measles outbreak.

I also find it very suspect that someone with apparently irish, spanish, portugese, italian roots which would indicate deep catholic roots as well as her double barreled surname suggesting that is muslim, so I m not sure where that comes in. also making a joke saying maybe if jesus had a vax against jews is so out of line and they don’t get why I find her attitude offensive.

But point being I can’t stand people that think they are right and no one else is even when they clearly refer to fictitious propaganda by nut cases! and rather endanger their children’s lives.
