Finally we have snow!!

We've had snow at night, gone in the morning!
We've had lots of snow on a school day!

But last night we had snow and this morning we still had snow.
Off we went to Grandma's and Grandad's with our sledges. Fun was had by all !!!

The Simple Things

 The simple things that made me smile this week!!

My daughter has done her practise 'SATS' tests this week. She's done really well and we are soooo proud of her. Cake for tea!!

The postman delivered a lovely book this week, which me and my little boy are reading together.

And finally a 'new to me' table. (Like I say the simple things make me happy). This table will change my life!!! I can multitask (leave my sewing out and feed the children at the same time).

Elf Work!

 A long time ago (last October) I started a woodwork project. Due to space most of my woodwork is done outside on a sunny day. This particular project was for Christmas, so it was done in secret!! Look away now children.

The woodwork was done, then the painting started. Luckily I had paint left over after decorating the children's bedrooms. 

So the finished product. A wall mounted shelf for Lego figures and one for Sylvanian family figures.

Mummy the Christmas Elf !!

Happy New Year!!

Welcome 2013. How long will it take before it feels normal to put 2013!! For me, probably weeks.
I would love to show you lots of crafty things I've been up to, but sadly there is nothing to show.

Today we took down our Christmas decorations. It truly signals the end of the holidays. Back to school for my two tomorrow and back to work for me. Boooo.

Although I haven't made any resolutions this year, I have made a 'general plan'  -  DO!

I often spend hours, days, weeks and even months debating even small tasks and jobs. This years to make the most of my time I plan to DO! 

Starting today (after the decorations) I tidied the children's craft cupboard. Here is the before photo....

 The Hama beads emerged from the cupboard, so my little boy made a tank!!

Then all the stuff went back in (well most of the stuff)

So the moto for 2013 (for me)  DO IT, STOP WASTING TIME!!

Just as a little therapy while I was out and about I got some fabric. I know, spots again!!
