There seems to be a lot going on here.

I don't know about you but my home life seems to be like my craft life at the moment. A rather large number of projects on the go and nothing actually being completed. When they finally do it will all look amazing!!

And on top of this we still have to get carpet in the hall and bedroom and finish painting everything in the lounge.
Firewood being chopped and a grumpy Jakob stacking it.
A new woodsheet being built - The most solid ever.
A new garden and paths being marked out. Do you see the paint lines?
Eli getting stuck into making Donna Hay easy muffins.
The muffins out of the oven - red currant as the fruit.

Yummy muffins - from Donna Hay T.V programme

Into a bowl sieve together:
2.5 cups of self raising flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Into the well put
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk 
1 egg
mix the wet together in the bowl to ensure the egg is beaten and then mix all together. The mixture is quite stiff.
Add whatever fruit you want. 300g fresh or frozen fruit. Put into muffin tins (put the mixture over 12 muffin tins) and sprinkle the top with granulated sugar. 
Bake at 180 deg C for 30-35 minutes until the top is crunchy.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love that you took time out to comment on my blog.
