Just Some Weekend Baking….

Last weekend Ben and I made Daddy some Kiwi Crisps….. his favorite biscuits.  They are a family recipe from his Mum, Jude.  Ben had an absolute ball helping.  Especially when I let him open the blocks of chocolate and break it into pieces.  He nibbled away on any pieces that didn’t break into exact squares.  I suggested to him a number of times that maybe he should stop eating the chocolate but he insisted that they had to be the correct shape and he just needed to nibble a little bit!!

Superhero Ben

Where does it come from? Where do little boys develop their love of all things Superhero? Ben has never watched Superman, Spiderman or similar hero films but had developed a passion for Superheroes. Hugo received a cape for his second birthday. Ben fell in love with it. At Hugo’s party Ben took turns with it all afternoon. I thought I would delight Ben with his very own cape just like his cousins. He loves it but is a little disappointed he can’t really fly!
