I'm beginning to think, looking at my diary for the next few days, I may be more busy than an 'it' girl.....in fact, I'm beginning to worry I may forget to go somewhere!
It's been a busy home this week, starting with today when small and middle had a jubilee celebration complete with picnic in school. With chance to dress up in red, white and blue, the boys decided they wanted union jacks on their t-shirts.
I always encourage the boys to try and do everything themselves, sometimes this means that their things don't look as polished as some of the other
parents' childrens' handiwork......but they are always very proud to wear their own creations......and again their creativity shone through.
Even small, at three, painted his t-shirt just filling in between the lines I drew for him.
Here they are all striking small's hair fiddling pose which he does when he's tired, we all like to 'take him off' to make each other giggle.
The bunting making has started, although I have a lot to make if I'm going to fulfil the picture in my mind's eye.....I started on these and then got a little carried away and decided I wanted a matching picnic blanket to go with it.....I have the material, the idea.....now just need a little more time!
It's middle's seventh birthday tomorrow and being a huge star wars fan, he's requested a star wars cake......I have to admit, cakes I make taste good, but never quite look like I hoped they would. I thought for a brief moment and figured the best way to go would be a light sabre..... So this evening I've made some Swiss rolls, ready to be assembled and iced tomorrow.
We have official birthday tomorrow, friend birthday Saturday with a trip to a local zoo, my in-laws jubilee BBQ Sunday, and big family gathering for middle's birthday tea party Monday, by which time, I think I will be slightly frayed at the edges!
I have soooo much baking to do, but then I love to bake so that is no hardship......the sewing is begining to come, but the flower borders? Still weedy....oooooppppps!
I will be back with further pics of all things as they unfold and as I begin to unravel!
