No tv?

I just read about this somewhere on my google reader (I'm sorry I can't remember where) and am seriously considering doing it. It's supposed to be lovely weather for the next few days and it can't hurt the electricity bill either right?
One week with no tv. Now, the only thing stopping me is the fact that I am really pregnant and have the sorest back possible. This pregnancy has really knocked me about and I am feeling it. With 3 small boys I have been relying on the tv for my sanity but honestly? We have a hundred books, playdoh, pencils, paint, why not give it a go?
Anyone else interested?

Easter 2010

So, it is a complete pain in the backside to have a lactose intolerant child. Raife, my youngest, is unable to eat dairy without getting a really upset tummy, which isn't pleasant for him, or us as the nappy changers. ;)This year I attempted to make him a Humpty Dumpty like his brothers. Why didn't I google how to use chocolate moulds before attempting this? Anyway, no pictures as it was a bit of a mess! I put Skittles inside and he loved it! I just couldn't get the two halves to stick together properly and had trouble getting the chocolate out of the case. Hopefully he'll grow out of it by next year!
We went to my Grandma's for an egg hunt and I made a carrot cake which was delicious, here's the recipe. Cream cheese icing! Mmm!In other news the cardigan for the baby girl is done and waiting for buttons and I am powering through the hexagon quilt. I think I may need to get myself to the quilt shop and buy some more FQs!
