Friday Night Madness

M is out, G is playing computer games, B is at her grandparents and I'm sitting here, reading this blog and doing something I often tell my children off for doing.  I'm drinking from the bottle of Just Juice Bubbles.

Don't worry, I finished it all, I'm not putting it back in the fridge (unlike some children who will remain nameless) however I think it's pretty sad that the extent of wildness in my life is that I get excited over doing something as 'mad' as drinking from the bottle!!  Or maybe I'm looking at it all wrong, it's not sad, it's actually pretty darn cool that my life is so great at the moment that drinking from the bottle is 'mad'.

Yeah, that's what I'll go with!!

Well the week started out OK .....

Monday was pretty OK, Tuesday M bought me flowers

Later Tuesday night however.... my poor brittle asthmatic had an attack, the ambulance was called and she's been in hospital till today (Friday).  She's tired, weak and was very bored but at least she was in the best place.  Hutt Hospital rocks!!

So plans for this weekend include resting, relaxing and catching up on sleep - for us all!

Milly turns 3

Recently I had another dilemma, Milly was turning 3 and I had NO IDEA what to get her. 

What do you get the child who's mother owns a toy store????

So ... I decided to put together a little art pack and in it included a handmade crayon roll.  Mad on Winnie-the-Pooh I used some fabric I had here for the outside, a contrasting star fabric for the inside and decided to go with a big button and elastic to close it rather than ties and was really happy with how it turned out

I think these are such a great idea.  It makes the crayons portable and help the kids with their small motor skills as they learn to take them in and out of the little pockets as well as the actual drawing. 

It was so easy to make that I'm definitely going to do more - I have another friend with two littlies so I have a good excuse. 

Oh and if you want to check out 'The Toy Store' go here - The Toy Store

So, Craft 2.0 is coming up in October and I need to start getting organised.  However I recently purchased this yarn:

'Da Apple' from Eskimimi Knits

I'm sure I can hear it whispering ever so softly, "Knit me first, go on, you know you want to, I'll make super fantastic socks"  SIGH!!!  I have no willpower!!!
