One of our mice had a birthday today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PICKLE At long last the day he had been waiting for arrived. Pickle woke early, just as the sun was beginning to peep up from behind Round Top Hill. After the birthday breakfast with his friends it was time to open the presents. “What did you get Pickle?” Barley and Fred leant forward…

Barley sugar time

Today Barley made some scrummy barley sugar ready for Pickle’s birthday. If you have a party coming up these barley twists will go a treat and if you use white sugar they look like sparkling icicles. Go here for the recipe

Getting ready for Pickle’s birthday

Barley its a surprise, you’ll just have to wait until Pickle opens the present on his Birthday.No you can’t feel it and have guess! And  WHY are you wearing your apron?   I’m making my speciality for him……..BARLEY SUGAR, if you have some sugar, an egg and a lemon you can join me too      

Why the long face?

Pickle! Why the long face? “Oh, nothing”. Come on, you are not normally one to sit still on such a sunny day. Maybe Pickle thinks we have forgotten his birthday? Well don’t  let on just yet but we do have something up our sleeves.
