And its felt cold enough to snow here for the past couple of days. All dreams of spring and the wearing of less layers than a polar explorer have gone out of the window. Today I even resorted back to the thick ski-mittens the boys bought me in the January sales - have been tempted to wear them in the house too.
In a bid to trick my body into thinking its warmer, I've treated myself to another hycanith - it normally lives on my kitchen window sill but I couldn't get a clear picture of it on there;
Some people hate the smell of these gorgeous flowers but I love it.
The postie brought me a new toy yesterday - a glue gun.
I've had such fun sticking things together - some repairs - like this brooch thats had its stone out for ages and ages;
And I've also been making a few little bits (earrings mainly) towards another stall (no date sorted yet);
I've also treated myself to some new zingy springy fabric & buttons;
I was brave today - I went to visit a local shop and took some samples to see if they would stock (on and sale or return basis) some of my makes - they said yes. Therefore I need to start churning out a lot of Rainbow Raggy dolls - my sewing table is becoming covered in body parts;
Just incase I get 5 minutes this week, I've treated myself to not one but two new magazines - I'd seen the Simply Homemade one on loads of blogs and MrVV managed to track one down for me whilst he was out and about;
Big son went on a course last night to train to be a Young Leader with the Scout Association. He's been a member since he was just 7 and is now helping each week with the Beaver Troupe. The boys love him - I don't think they really believe he was ever as small as them. He's earnt himself a new badge to sew on his uniform. He had more dates for more training later in the year - should keep him busy;
Lastly little son came home tonight and handed me 2 school paper towels which were wrapped around something. He goes to a Science Club one lunchtime each week and last week, they made bathbombs - he handed them over with the words 'Happy Mothers Day Mum' - early but lovely :)
Lastly the new list for the Photo Scavenger Hunt is out - I just wonder how many Lions I shall find in the Suffolk Countryside???
See you soon
