Chocolate, balloons and crochet

Today has been a day of many dimensions.  My middle monkey had a hospital appointment and by way of a treat, we stopped in the local bakery and chose some yummy cakes for everyone for lunch.  Everyone got rather sticky, but the littlest monkey certainly took the biscuit.....or should I say the whole cake........

The boys finally finished their 'Hot Boons' (so called by little) after much sticking, painting, glueing, cutting, weaving, glitter glue, pom-poms, feathers and sequins.  They are now proudly displayed in their bedrooms, with all of them finding a small teddy to go in each.

Which just left me............I've been in a bit of a lull with my crochet, there are so many things I want to do, I have flapped and done none of them.  Well............finding three boys engaged in crafting.........I did wonder why I wasn't doing any myself, so I hopped upstairs grabbed a few odds and ends and started...........any guesses? 


  1. Cake makes everything better in my opinion ! and no point in having cake and not getting messy lol. As a mum to 7 its half the fun and I love the balloons, thats an idea for our next rainy day.
    I have no guesses on what the crochet is going to become so I shall watch and see but its got red my favourite colour so its going to be good ;-D

  2. Fantastic picture! My kids just won't do crafty stuff, even my daughter, Lego is about as far as the boys will go. All sport for them especially in the rain! Aussies aren't too keen to play football in the rain but my lot find it helps their slide tackles no end!
    Looking forward to seeing your creations, enjoy your weekend,

I'd love to hear what you think, and I won't be asking you to jump through hoops (or fill in a captcha) to do it.............
