Sorry to be so absent folks. Time is in fast forward! A busy week and a busy weekend. Sunny gardening, a barbecue with neighbours and a family of toads moved into the new vivarium... !The Christening was a lovely chance to see family and old friends. And the karaoke style screen in the church for hymns was a first for most of us..... and not entirely well received. There's something about singing from a musty old hymn book which adds to the sense of a place! The big screen had everything except the bouncing red ball!
The gifts were completed in the eleventh hour!
Last week ended with a serious bun crisis.....this was the second batch!! I have no idea what happened to my baking skills. My buns never ever do this so I had no idea what was wrong.
But I had promised the beautiful boy Bug Buns for an end of half term class treat... so I filled up those craters with icing - I didn't think many 7 year olds would object to more icing!
I was cheered up to be given flowers! I have been helping a little with KS1 sewing activities which has been enormous fun and now it has come to an end they gave me flowers! Beautiful zingy bright flowers!
Flowers that made me stop worrying about my baking mojo and made me go zing!
Then clever mumsie gave me lovely prezzies! A yummy blue jug for my collection and acres of candlewick!
Beautiful raspberry ripply candlewick. Oh I have plans for this!
Then a little person gave me more flowers.... so pretty!
and as we are fully in the swing of half term, I am grabbing quiet late night moments pattern cutting ready for a sewing marathon next week! Eleventh hour again! But I am so looking forward to going along to the Little Vintage Lover Fair.
Big excitements to come this week. Tomorrow a bloggy friend is visiting from way out West! And on Thursday a journalist is coming to do an interview. Not sure I shall be in any fit state half way through half term but hey ho! I shall witter on about something I'm sure! Enjoy the holiday those of you who are home with children! Lets hope the sunshine returns soon! t.x
