Loving Fridays...
What a gorgeous sunny day!
I just got home - dropped the boys off to school and Preschool, went in for a haircut ( ...just a trim, nothing drastic)
and I also got my eyebrows shaped - i feel good!

Thought Id show you the beautiful softie I won on Pip's
Softies for Mirabel Ebay auction - shes a Yakka doll made by 'Partridge and Pear'... just beautiful!!
i didnt have time to contribute to the Mirabel softie appeal this year so thought Id bid on one and Im so happy I won!! she sleeps on my bed...

and a plate of creamy pillows just to entice those tastebuds...easy peasy to make!!
*cut 2 sheets of ready made puff pastry into 9 squares each
*bake in hot oven until puffed and golden...gently seperate into two so you have a total of 18 tops and 18 bottoms.
*whilst they are baking
whip together instant vanilla pudding sachet with milk - refrigerate to slighty thicken
*add some thick fresh cream - I added about 1 cup whipped cream, into the vanilla pudding
*once your pillows are cool - add dollops of the cream to the bottoms and sandwich together with the tops
*sprinkle some icing sugar on top! Voila!

  12. They look delicious, but alas, puff pastry and I have had very few happy moments. I'll have a go on the weekend though. Life is just too busy right now.
