Well I have survived our triple grands sleepover last night ..... just! I gave the parentals strict instructions that my house was to be a child free zone from lunchtime and they duly obliged and collected said offspring. Peace reigns .... bliss.
Still no crafting done today but some more de-cluttering ..... I am making a rule for myself that for every item I bring into the house from now on one other thing has to depart and so today I have freecycled a wooden swing crib that I used for my brood (it must be 30 years old as I bought it secondhand in 1981!) .... a lovely excited lady came to collect. She is going to dress it ready for a new grandchild and she was over the moon .... it was a lovely feeling to know that someone else was going to treasure it as I have and what use was it to me stuck in the loft. A single bed frame and knitting machine found new homes yesterday so I am learning to let go. I am also waiting for my OH to notice that the pile of bricks that have lived on the front garden since the wall fell over some 5 years ago have disappeared ..... he's been out today and another lady who posted a wanted for bricks has been to collect them. She is making a allotment area in a disused part of a friend's garden.
My washing machine decided to play silly devils on Friday so DD1 and I popped to the laundrette this afternoon and whilst our machines were turning we went to Asda for a few supplies for dinner. Along the ethnic aisle we spotted this and just couldn't resist .... a friend of my daughter's gets married this year and she's going to pop this in with her hen party delights.
I also spied these in the children's section but as they went up to a size 6 again I couldn't resist ..... CK eat your heart out and a fraction of the price.
So Mother Nature if you are thinking of chucking some more of the white stuff at us over the next couple of weeks I'm ready for you.
