I saw this packet mix in Sainsburys the other day and just couldn't resist getting it if only to have the cookie cutter. I rationalised it to myself at the time that I was buying them because Calum would have great fun baking them with me - yeah right! It's not as if he's even seen an episode of Dr Who yet. Anyway I had great fun baking them and they aren't too bad taste wise for a packet mix, but I think in future I'll be making them as gingerbread biscuits with chocolate chips for the round bulb bits (not sure what the technical term is - maybe a Dr Who afficionado can advise me).

Couldn't resist buying this wooden bobbin with white merino roving from Wingham Woolwork when I saw them in their newsletter. They come from worsted spinners Joseph Horsfall of Halifax which have now closed down. Wingham Woolwork bought up all their stock of wool and it came on the bobbins that they used for spinning. Each bobbin holds about 1kg of roving so it should keep me busy for a while. I'm planning to knit, felt and dye some handbags from it.
