Phew ..... can't say I am sorry to see the end of half term week and I will be so glad to get back to 'normal' (whatever that is) next week.
We started the week with this
which led to some really reluctant ladies venturing out
By Thursday it had all disappeared as quickly as it arrived .... I love the first day of snow but once the deadly ice and dirty slush appear I've had enough.
I have had a quieter than usual half term with minded children but have had the additions of my daughter and her family moving in with us. The musical rooms game has come to a conclusion and we are all settled in our new sleeping quarters. The children have what had become my sewing room, daughter and partner have our room so they are next door to the children and we have moved downstairs. Method in my madness there too as I won't be the first port of call when they wake up on a morning!
Absolutely no crafting done whatsoever for a fortnight but to be honest I don't have the energy at the moment and I am trying to get my head around where I have put everything in the move around.
Loads of de-cluttering done with bags going to the charity shop, lots of freecyclers collecting more bags and almost £700 raised in Fleabay sales. Which leads me onto the spoilspsorts title. This morning we went over to Hitchin for some shopping and my rotten spoilsport daughters wouldn't let me go into the charity shops! How very dare they ;-)
I did however sneak this one in which was on a stall in the market square
We ordered a cake for the 30th birthday of the first born who is coming down from Scotland in two weeks time and I will share some photos of that then.
I am hoping to pop down to Hexton tomorrow to do a stock take and take some new stock and I really must start thinking about what I will take to the Northampton Vintage & Handmade Fair in 3 weeks time.
Hope those of you with littlies have got through half term with your sanity intact and I will be listening for that big sigh on Monday morning at 9 am when they are all safely in school again.
Have a good weekend x
