Orla Kiely Apron For Sport Relief, Even Sooty And Sweep Have One!

When it comes to a big charity effort like sport relief, I don't need an excuse to blog, but if I did I'm sure these super cute children's TV characters would put up a pretty persuasive argument. As the current run of 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' comes to an end today, it seems it's not just the winners of each episode that have got their hands on one of the designer aprons first seen as a prize for the winners.

Yes, children's TV icons Sooty and Sweep have got in with the action showing off their miniature versions of the Sport Relief Apron in a fun photo shoot. They were joined in the fun bake-off  themed photo shoot by personality Michelle Heaton.

Orla Kiely has created a limited edition apron for Sport Relief available from HomeSense and TK Maxx stores

How cute is that, I almost want sooty and sweep baking with my in my kitchen. It's not just celebs and furry characters that can get their hands on this apron though - it's being sold in HomeSense and TK Maxx for £12.99, with at least £5.25 going to Sport Relief. The apron is limited edition as well, so you'll own something cool for your kitchen and be helping a great cause as well. 

Me in the Sport Relief Apron


I have supported Comic Relief in different ways over the year's but I haven't yet taken the plunge and entered a sport relief event yet - it's something I'd love to do one day, and I am fully behind anything that encourages us all to get fit and active, while raising money for a great cause. If you want to find out how it's done keep an eye out for the Sports Relief Games which take place between the 18th and 20th March - and the big TV fundraising night on the Friday.

* I was sent this apron for the purposes of this blog but am a regular supporter of this fundraising event.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
