The blue one woke up this morning and spied the sewing machine on the table and instantly announced he was going to do some sewing today. Great – its before 9am, and I’m being ordered around already by a little person I thought! I then asked the question of what he actually wanted to sew.… Read More A Sewing Sunday Morning
My little boy is very clever, well I would say that, I’m his Mummy! He loves Maths and Science, and his reading is brilliant, but trying to get him to write anything and thats a whole other story! He hates literacy, really can’t see why he’s writing things, and handwriting, well, well why write anything… Read More A poem and a picture
Hola, as they say in Spain! So the wedding was brilliant – more photos will come in a separate post – I need to do it justice really (and ask my Sis if I can post pictures!). A whirlwind weekend, then we ditched the yucky UK weather and headed to Lanzarote….. Sunshine, and a pool… Read More A bit absent lately…… Then the Great British Bake Off????
Wow – what a whirlwind few days! Blog land is keeping me very busy (not what I’d planned for at the beginning of the 6 week school holidays). Thank you to everyone who’s liked my blog and my shark pattern since I published a picture of it back in April, then finally found the time to type… Read More The Mermaid Tail Pattern
I wasn’t going to write anything today – but it’s been such an extraordinary day I can’t resist. I woke up this morning and carried out my usual task of walking the dogs at 6am. Another car was parked where I normally park in the completely empty car park, but I didn’t really think anything… Read More A Parallel Universe?
Just around the corner from where I live, and I kind of do mean just around the corner, I could walk there in maybe 30 minutes, drive there in 10, there is the most amazing field I have ever set eyes on in my life. Every year in June and July, we are very lucky… Read More A very purple field
A bad week for the iMac and Photos behaving themselves. The new camera has been put to good use (it still doesn’t have a name though), but could I get them into my blog easily? No. I’ve had to upload them to photos, then copy and paste them to a folder on teh desk… Read More Geocaching and a few pictures of the garden
Shaun the Sheep in hiding in London!!! Completely true. Why – I hear you ask? Well to raise money for Childrens Hospitals – but they are only here until 25th May (just before half term???) There are 50 Shauns hiding in and around Famous Landmarks in the capital – so on Bank holiday Monday we… Read More Hunting for Shaun the Sheep in the City
The Easter holidays were almost over, previously we’ve always gone away – Lanzarote last year (the kids still talk about the mini club man Martin on a daily basis), Dubai the year before, Egypt the year before….. you get the ideas. Time to escape the Great British weather and get some sunshine. This year, my… Read More A few nights away up North
Today we went to Kew Botanical Gardens. I’ve always wanted to go – and it was lovely there. It’s English Spring time – so not a huge amount in flower apart from Tulips, Magnolia, Rhododendrons and Blossom – it was still beautiful. Rather than a load of words – here some pictures.
