* 100 *

Thank you so much for all your kind words from my last post, needless to say both boys were perfectly fine and Hub did indeed call me a big softie. Milo has settled straight back in with no problems and even has some new clubs to look forward to which include learning to play the guitar , to speak French and gardening with the headmistress. He's not so sure about the last one !. Gabe enjoyed his first week and a quick word with his teacher put me at ease and fingers crossed there were no little accidents of the changing trousers variety. Next week he will be in from 10 until 2 which will help him ease into staying for school dinners then after that it will be in full time - phew.
So, school matters aside , you may or may not have been wondering as to why my last post was titled 99 and a half ? Simply because I wanted my 100th post this year to be of the nice variety and also to announce a little Giveaway as a thank you to you all .Can you see the little Wuzzies above , well if you win I will let you choose one  . It can either be a bunny or a mouse and you can also pick which colour you would like it to be made in. Plus if you commented on my last post you will also get an extra entry . I'm not going to ask for anything fancy like following me or posting on your own blog , just leave me a comment - that's all. But if you would like to follow or mention it on your blog then feel free.
I set myself a little target this month to see just how many things I can knit if I really set my mind to it and knit, knit, knit. So far I've done the two Wuzzies , the swimming Bunty above was made for a lady in Sweden and I went back to an old pattern for Ginger the bear . He really is quite cute , well I think so and I love the colour of his dungarees . I'm also nearly finished another bunny and am trying to make some Innocent Drink  hats too.
Oh I nearly forgot, I'll pick a winner for the Giveaway next Saturday so that gives you one week. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend .... take care .

Twiglet has settled into big boy class 2 very well this week too -yay!! Glad your boys are ok.
All the littlies in our school are having a staggered start for the first week. I had the tissue box ready in our office and not a single littlie cried, a few Mums did though ;)
That was me a couple of years ago!!
