Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that the new year fills you with excitement at what possibilities the next 12 months have to offer. For me 2017 flew by far too quickly, especially from September onwards and it wasn’t all because I was having too much fun either. It was a… Continue reading New Year Resolutions?
Another year has passed and, as of last Sunday, I am another year older. I have been given a lovely selection of gifts and I appreciate them all but I thought I’d show you the amazing shawl my sister knitted for me. I admired one that she had knitted in the early summer and cheekily… Continue reading New Birthday Shawl
I’ve been a little slow posting on her over the last week. The kids have been off school on their half term holiday so I have been busy baking cakes and playing games. I have however made sure I still had time to do my colouring so I could continue with the 30 day colouring… Continue reading The 30 Day Coloring Challenge
I’m not going to lie – things have been tough round here for the last few weeks. For those that read my last blog post you will know that my son has been very unwell (if you want to read my last post you can click here), we have attended a funeral for my husband’s… Continue reading Button Birthday and Sad News
Some weeks only cake will do. Or chocolate. Maybe wine. I’m rather late showing my last Christmas card but that is due to Christmas not exactly going as planned. My husbands Uncle died on the 21st December and my 4 year old son was rushed to hospital early on the 22nd December. He had been… Continue reading Some Weeks Only Cake Will Do!
I’m still here – just. The last few weeks have been crazy bonkers. I suppose it’s that time of year. I have never know so many school Christmas activities that needed so much parental input. Different activities for each child on different days, various birthdays including mine and the usual round of paediatrician appointments. The… Continue reading Christmas Cards
I’ve become a little too distracted in the last few weeks to do much blogging. It’s that time of year where my brain becomes foggy and I’m a little (OK very) panicked about what presents I still need to buy, has it arrived (oh Amazon, you are my best friend) and will they like it.… Continue reading Christmas Tree Doodle
I went to Cornwall in August and as ever had to take craft/art supplies. The kids don’t cope well with going away (the uncertainty of new places etc) but at the same time they love it. At the end of the evening I needed something to relax with to try to forget about that day’s drama and… Continue reading Seagull!
It was my Husband’s birthday just over a week ago. In my head I had planned this hand drawn card but the reality was that I was clearly brewing my sinus infection and couldn’t focus or sit at my craft desk for too long. I had bought a stamp set it the summer with various sports… Continue reading Football Birthday Card
Well, half term came and went. Both kids came down with a heavy cold and chose to spend their days in their pjs glued to Minecraft. We made it out the house briefly but their tolerance for being out and about was low so we opted for long (oh my, some days were very long!)… Continue reading Kids Crafts – Hama Bead Tea Light Holders
