I have a stall at an Autumn Fair tomorrow so I treated myself to a trolley to drag my stuff about. It's not flash but it was only £10 so I'll let you know if the contents empties itself out all over the car park!

Hope you all have a good weekend, it's supposed to be sunny tomorrow! Xx

My parcel arrived today. I love what is inside but there is one problem.....

I bought my tape from Etsy but it was from the US which meant I had to pay a customs fee. It is so annoying and means I won't be able to buy from that shop again. I just can't afford the extra cost.

Anyway, I do love my tape and started making flags while watching tv with poorly Maisy who has a stinker of a cold. Too poorly for school! (and maisy hates to miss school)

I will probably make more tonight while watching Mad Men. We are only on the first series but I'm loving it so far. The clothes, the interiors, the drinks..... Fabulous!

Hope none of you are suffering too much in all this rain. Xx

Not a great deal going on here except sleepy children and pets, bad colds and tiny cutting out.

And.....I think the boy might let me cut his hair later! Please don't let him change his mind!

My lovely Maisy is 12 today. Happy birthday pretty girl!

I had ordered her an Orla hoody from Uniqlo and she loves it. A new watch as well! Morten made the most of the wrapping paper.

With everyone off to school I started on some more animal pictures. I am still working my way through the alphabet too. Nearly there now!! I don't mind doing things like that really, I just listen to the radio and drink gallons of tea. I'm sure it can't be good for my insides!

Birthday Eve

Maisy will be going to her Dad's house after school tomorrow (her birthday), so we had the cake today.

Presents in the morning though!

This weekend has mainly involved eating!

Jamie's Mum and her husband are over from Vancouver and they stayed with us last night. We were celebrating her 70th birthday (very belated because we haven't seen her since) and maisy's birthday which is on Thursday! 12 already. I can hardly believe it.

I tried out a new lemon cake recipe and it was GOOD. I ate too much as per usual. Feeling slightly sick now as I lie in bed. :(

I'll be baking again this week for maisy. She likes her cake to be the same each year..... Nigella's Cola Cake.

Anyway, Sunday night means an early night for me. I try and be prepared for whatever might come our way during the week!

Visitors and a Golden Boot

Just a quick post to show you my wonderful son and his trophy. He was Man of the Match today and I am proud. Very, very proud.

Also we have been waiting for our visitors and Morten has been looking out of the window for them...... :)

Little Dog Thing

I made a new picture today for delivery tomorrow. I quite like it's little face.

After I finished that I went to pick up Soren from school. Just as we were waiting at the crossing something terrible happened. A trailer came off the back of a van and came up onto the pavement. I shouted 'Move!' but a high school boy was coming past on his bike and it knocked him over and pinned him to the wall.

We took him into school where the police and an ambulance were called. I think he is just bruised and shocked but it's best to be safe. The police took lots of information and our details as we had noted the reg number. I can't believe they just drove off! Then while we went back to school they must have returned, picked up the trailer and gone. I hope they find him. It could have been so much worse. If there had been tiny reception children or the boy hadn't been up on his bike, well I don't even want to think about it.

I hope I get to hear what happens.
