I should write this post yesterday, but my boy had a little accident which left him with a cut near his lower lip.. Hope that stop him from climbing everywhere he think he can or want.. At least no stitches were needed, so no extra stress for him and me.
Back to the post theme...
We were once more in South Shields. Dom likes metro and ferry :) We decided to check properly the town and find park and beach I saw once back in 2005... Not easy task, believe it or not :)
From town centre we directed ourselves to the seafront with short stop in a restaurant called Indian Essence for lunch - best chicken korma ever for me :)
After yummy food we found South Marine Park - beautiful place with miniature steam train, boating lake, crazy monuments, band stand and nice playground area for kids.

Wow, this is my 100th post... Still couldn't believe I'm writing so long :)
I decided to show you my son's paintings today, cause I think this is good theme for 'jubilee' post ;)
Dominik is 4 and obsessed with painting lately. One of my friends said that is good for him, cause thanks to painting he practicing grabbing objects like brush, pencil or pen in correct way to be ready for school ( he's starting reception in September).
Dom created over 40 pieces in about 2 weeks time - quite a lot, don't you think? Dom calls lots of them 'Rokokos'.

Long time I didn't write or show you my cards... Possibly cause I wasn't making much of them.
Last month with my subscribed crafty magazine I received beautiful papers and decided to use them, specially that Dom was invited for Birthday Party for his school girl friend. I wasn't sure what kind of card I should make, cause all kids are different, so I made 3 for Dom to choose from :)

We are fans of little cakes :) All these muffins and cupcakes are very tempting :)
In opinion of my guys - small one and big one - I'm not baking often enough :) The easiest for me is just use recipe for one of the cakes, divide batter between paper cases and bake as muffins :) Bad me :)
Few days ago I decided to make proper cupcakes - so I opened book with cupcakes recipes and with 4yo exploring kitchen I baked chocolate advocaat cupcakes.
Dom couldn't wait and eat one of them without icing when was slightly cooled :)

We had beautiful Saturday, so we decided to go for little trip. We bought Explorer tickets and off we went :)
We caught bus to Newcastle, deal with some stuff, then go for Chinatown to eat nice buns and drink some jasmine tea in BreadPoint - http://heysushi.co.uk/0510851/Breadpoint_Ltd. This little place is our fave stop when we're going to the town :)
After nice snack we caught metro to South Shields. First proper stop there we made in South Shields Museum and Art Gallery, where we had a chance to see 'St Tropez' by Pierre Auguste Renoir and few other interesting paintings and I met nice lady crafter which creations you can find here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/AngelanneGems.
This museum maybe is not huge, but I love stained glass window there:
