I’ve not forgotten!

I’m not neglecting my blog, but I’m in the middle of the busiest three weeks I’ve had in a while. So much going on at work!

As soon as I get a chance I’ll be updating about my party dress, a quilt I’m about to start, the crochet bunny slippers, a chocolate and raspberry tart, my cranberry and Wensleydale cheese tartlets for our Christmas day lunch, Christmas cupcakes and a partridge in a pear tree. Maybe not quite a partridge, but it certainly feels like it!




Manchester science festival

Just a short post from Manchester! I attended the BBC ‘bang goes the theory’ live event yesterday as part of Manchester science festival.

I was on the look out for new experiments and ideas to take back to work and I’ve picked up a few fun ideas.

I especially liked the live demo of using melted sweets to make glue, and the astronaut tests. I also saw a really good healthy eating demo that I can’t wait to set up, I’ll blog it when I get the chance to make it 🙂

A group of children were using maggots to paint with, they blobbed paint on a piece of paper and then popped a handful of maggots on to the paper and they wriggled around spreading the paint into pretty patterns. Haven’t quite decided if it was cruel to the maggots or not!

Off to Mr Scruff’s tea shop called teacup in the northern quarter today. Right after the rugby world cup final 🙂
