I went to help my nanny with a nice lady with her 3 children who went soap making at my nanny's unit. The soap turned out really nice and we even got to go to the park behind the unit while the soap set :D



My First REAL S.T.E.M Session.

Yesterday, I did my very first proper (I didn't go to the first one) S.T.E.M Session. The first one my sister went to (that I didn't) they made goo. This time however, we were looking at and learning about rocks, at first I was grumpy but it soon got interesting...!

We first looked at Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary rocks, I honestly didn't have a clue what these meant until I went there... The More You Know! :o What I also found interesting is that 1.

My first 'First' this week is my Bread & Butter Pudding, an old English pudding. I actually made it mostly by myself, nanny did the buttering so 1/4 credit for her!:)

*500ml milk (yes that much).

*2 eggs.

2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon. Then add the dried fruit. Mix.

3.Butter the bread and then layer it, cut into triangles AFTER you butter it. Silly.

4. After each layer sprinkle over the sultanas (dried fruit) and sugar mix. just to make sure every slice is covered.

5.Mix the eggs and milk together and whisk.

6. Pour over the bread and leave to soak for 10 mins.

7.Bake for about 40 mins o…
