Designer Daughter

Henrietta went for her eyes testing last week, and much to her delight she needed glasses.  The colour had to be just the right shade of either pink or purple, and in true style she opted for the designer range.  One pair of ROXY designer glasses later and I have one very happy daughter.

Its nice to be blogging again after being absent for almost 2 weeks, the reason for no posts is that I have been rather busy sewing up a large order of felt hair clips for one of my customers in Australia - heres the whole order ready for shipping:

I am also helping out at my childrens primary school 3 times a week.  Friday afternoon is Golden Time with Years 1 and 2.  We made pop-up mouth cards last week, this was one of my attempts:
Thought he looked quite cute with the crown

We are making dream catchers tomorrow - out of paper plates - wish me luck

My Poor Achy Joints

I was full of beans going to bed last night, had my mind made up, I was going to the gym as soon as I'd dropped the kids off at school.  Mmm, things dont always work out as planned.  My poor joints this morning, I couldnt even swing my legs out of bed - every joint in my body aches.

So Im missing the gym today, but will return tomorrow to sort out those wobbley bits.

Hope you all have a great

New Gym Member

Oh god help me, Ive joined my local gym this morning.  Its only taken me 12 months to get through the doors (not bad going!).  Ive made every excuse under the sun not to join, but alas, the time has come to get rid of my wobbley bits (I have many).  First gym day is on Thursday - wish me luck fellow bloggers

Decorating Is Complete....

....well, until I start on the kitchen, but thats a project for next year.  I just want to relax in my lovely lounge and enjoy the fruits of my labour.

This is what colour I discovered underneath the grim wallpaper - not really a colour I would have in a lounge

And this is the finished result - alot of hard work, but well worth it - I am loving my new look lounge

At long last, I have proper toy storage, dvd and cd storage (where on earth did all those dvd's come from, I have 100's) - bliss!

School Is Now Open

Kids went back to school today.  I was abit emotional this morning, as I really didnt want them to go.  Charlie was really excited about going back and seeing all his friends, and meeting his new teacher.  Have to say, Henrietta wasnt as keen, but just picked them up and she said she'd had a brilliant day.
