I Did a Body

Yeah, I finished the body on my bear and I've started on the head. Just got to keep going now.....

My due date to go back to work has changed from 1st April until 1st July or maybe even until the end of the school holidays when M will be going to school full time instead of just nursery on the afternoons. The reason for this is that my Mother In Law who we paid to look after M whilst we were at work has said she doesn.t want to look after G. This has left us in a right pickle to say the least. Child minders are so expensive--especially when you have to pay for two!!. I just wish that I were more creative and able to sell things like some of the lovely titems you see in the Etsy shop and on the Blogs I read. Maybe one day.

We spent a nice afternoon down the park today. M took his trike although I,m not sure who enjoyed playing with it more!



I love going to the park, no matter what the weather. I think that there are two sets of people "beach/sea" people and the " grass/tree" people. I definately fall into the latter category. Even though we live close to the sea I'd much rather go to the park and bird spot or go raking for fungi or looking for squirrels.


Hub fed G his porridge when we got back home and the least said about that the better.

He enjoyed it though

Welcome to blogging! It's addictive and before you know it you'll have 'met' lots of wonderful people and read dozens of blogs everyday...and then wonder where the time goes...or is that just me?!

Hi Lisa

Nonnie suggested we should visit you and I'm so glad she did. Your little boys are gorgeous ... and so alike!

I'm looking forward to seeing your bear and all the other items you'll be making as you start to build up your working from home plan!

Welcome to blogland - will be back!

My Mother in Law (outlaw)let me down with childcare, she just over night said she did not want to have my little dear anymore. It was a nightmare for a time but in the end I decided to pack in work and concentrate on my business, it has been so hard! I also fell out with the outlaw for a time as I felt she really let me down! Love the blog, I only joined the land of blog in May, belief me it takes over your life!

Hello! Stumbled upon your blog somehow(?)and glad i did! Your boys look adorable and I can totally empathise with the maternity leave thing. I have just returned to work after a year off but only intend to see out my contract obligations and then i will work from home. That said...these plans never go to plan do they?!

Welcome also from me. i also have recently started. I am probably a seaside person, but a bit fairweather too. Going to Donegal this weekend and I hope I am brave enough to go out into the windy blast! I have added your blog to my list so i will stop by often. Please feel free to visit too. Would love to see your crafts. You should feel brave after you have seen mine! lol.
