Sun and great finds

After all the rain that seems to have been drowning the island that is home it was lovely to see some blue sky and white fluffy clouds today. Him indoors took us out for lunch which was very nice and then I took the couple of bags that I've had hanging around the house down to the charity shop. And yes I came back with two bigger bags but in my defence the two pairs of curtains I bought are gorgeous. I'll get pics tomorrow to share their loveliness but then maybe I shouldn't as I want to make something for my recycling partner over on Craftster hmmm dilemmas dilemmas :)

A day of questions

Why do they get the kids back to school then strike the day after? Honestly!
And when is all the rain going to go away?
I know I've just decorated the bathroom but I did it fully clothed so why do I have paint on my belly?
Why do Chinese takeaways not give detailed descriptions of what their meals are so that I could chose something different without worrying that I'll hate it?

Anyway at least the kids are back at school now so I can get back to some serious crafting which is a good thing as I've two swaps due soon. :o

New Ings coming your way...

watching... the rain.

listening to... The Ting Tings new album.

eating... Chinese Takeaway.

shooting... it's raining and I've not made anything for ages so nothing.

buying... Some wee gnomes that hide in your pot plants.

selling... some days it feels like my soul but actually nothing at the moment.

gossiping... with the lads at work at what we think should be done with Gary Glitter.

completing... painting the bathroom.

wondering... when the smalls will go to sleep so I can go to bed.

And I thought I'd just share with you some lovely heart rocks.

Last few days of the holidays

The smalls go back to school a week today. I guess I must be one of those odd mums (well ok I know that, you know that and everyone else seems to know that) as I'm not one of those women who have a manic smile on their faces and a glint of something dangerous in their eyes everytime someone mentions the countdown. I miss the smalls when they go to school, ok maybe that's a tadge over dramatic obviously I'm grateful to be able to get the house sort of tidy for the few hours their out of the house and I'm extremely grateful to get some proper crafting time but hey call my crazy but I like my small people and on a good day they seem to like me :D

Unfortunately this week has been a bit of a non starter for me in all ways, that bloody pit of doom, anyway if the weather would kindly stop chucking wet stuff down me and the smalls should be able to have some good fun before they get back to homework and the million out of school activiites they have on. Yep that's my Mum's Taxi sign back on top of the car :)

Finding work for idle hands

Well my hands aren't being totally idle to be honest but they're just to busy doing other things to craft :( I've signed myself up for a couple of swaps over at Craftster...yes ok you know me so well by now it's actually 3 swaps. More on them later ;) With the smalls still home on their summer holidays things are too hectic for me to sit in peace with my knives and scissors and pins and needles.

Wee one is having yet another friend over tonight for yet another sleep over. Yes I am certifiable! she had 3 friends round all day today to play (it's been raining all day) and she did ask if all 3 of them could stay for a sleep over, thankfully I was lucid at the time and said no only one could stay. So because I'm up and down the stairs constantly supplying new videos, snacks and words of comfort I thought I'd catch up on some computer time. :D Woohoo!
