Today I tackled some things that had been stored in the attic and which we now need to get rid of. Mostly this consisted of baby ‘stuff’ – a couple boxes of baby toys, high chair, pram, car seats, walker etc etc. Some of these things will be put on ebay, some on freecycle and some taken to the charity shop. All the objects had been bagged or wrapped where possible but they have been in the attic a good few years so are all getting scrubbed, washed and generally freshened up.
The worst thing to clean was the big play pen – we no longer had the box so all the pieces had been kept together with brown parcel tape. I wasn’t sure if the tape residue would come off but a bit of elbow grease did the trick. Before and after:
So it was a sorting kind of day but as small person was having a friend back to play after school I did a quick bit of baking:
Banana and chocolate chip muffins
2 ripe bananas (mashed up)
80 grams soft brown sugar
4 tablespoons of rapeseed oil
130ml full fat milk
200g SR flour
Chocolate chips – as many as you like (I used a lot – there is no such thing as too many chocolate chips)
Mix everything together, put in to muffin cases and bake for 20 mins at 190:
They went down very well.
