Fourteen day half term, absentee husband, dismal rain, caged beast children.
Baking is usually the answer. Bludgeon them into submission with sugar.
But there is a broken oven to add into the mix. So shop bought gingerbread men and icing in squeezy bottles had to suffice. Fun all the same.

Poor you, I hope it all improves soon. Great gingerbread skeletons though. I'm doing jellies in an orange that's carved to look like a little pumpkin tomorrow - no oven required. Not too much washing up either; my dishwasher was pronounced BER today (Beyond Economic Repair). Sigh.

Ha, brilliant Ali! There is no keeping you down, resourceful as ever you are. Fourteen days is a bit of a marathon though, I hope the oven gets fixed, the weather stays dry and that you have a few more clever ideas to keep those active boys of yours busy!

Gorgeous little skeletons - how resourceful you are, Ali. Hope the oven's soon up and baking again.
As a mute admirer of your wonderful blog (not in a stalky way, just shyly listening at the door of the blogosphere before knocking), a heartfelt thank you for all your inspiring moments of loveliness.

Where there's a will, there's a way. You're a genius -- those are adorable!

I'm impressed. I can't imagine how much I would have had to bribe MasterM to ice cookies after the age of 8. We are taling serious money.

Very creative! I hope the weather picks up a bit and you can get some time outdoors - good luck :)

Fourteen days, that's a marathon! Hope you can get that oven fixed so they can be elbow deep in flour asap.

My monsters threw a fit whilst cleaning the pumpkins. They wanted ME TO DO IT FOR THEM. Oh noooooooooooooo.
(I think next year I'll buy smaller ones though.... so much gunk!)
