I worked out this morning, yay me! Fitted in a bit of shopping for sadly nothing more exciting than some shampoo and nail varnish remover and it was back to collect Missy from school. I had engineered F's naptime to allow for a bit of sewing.
|She did seem happy to be colouring, honest!|
But I had no more than 13 blocks sewn up and he was awake again, an hour and a half he slept for and only 13 blocks, shame on me. We did have a juice related emergency and stopped for biscuits. The perrels of trying to get anything done with your 4 year old hanging around. I love spending time with her and I love her thirst for knowledge and need to know everything going on around her, but I wish she'd quietly sit and colour in for an hour and let me have a little peace and quiet. But alas, it was not to be, and quite frankly I wouldn't change it for the world :-/
|I wish I didn't have to put this all away again...|
So, since the sewing had to be abandoned, and abadoned it was as it's all still out on the kitchen table (my creative space - yuk!) I managed to persuade both children, well Maddie, that Alvin and the Chipmunks was the way forward and I'm getting a bit of short lived silent (if you ignore the squeaky noises now coming from Alvin and his, umm, chipmunks). The toys are out, F is bopping away to the tunes when they're on and Maddie is snuggled up a blanket. What a nice way to spend a miserable English afternoon.
|Does anyone else lay the toys out all pretty, or is that just me?|
And look what fell through my letter box this morning. The first of about a 1000 Boden catalogues, I heart this shop, I just want so many of their clothes but given their price I'm limited to maybe one or 2 a season and settle for adding everything to their online basket and daydreaming about the new wardrobe I could purchase with just the teeny weeny click of a button. It makes for pretty reading though...
|I *need* this jacket in my life. It's the price a month's food shopping so perhaps not...|
