Squeezing it all in...

Squeezing it all in this weekend. I had to miss out on making the Tee's and ended up giving a card making set to the little boy and a big fabric flower pin for the little girl, I put it on a label with fabric sewn on (pink gingham) and machine embroidered her name on it, I do not know the little girl as it was a party invite from nursery so she could love it or loath it!!! Last night I managed to get a bit of spring cleaning done, I took out most of my winter clothes and started to pull out the summer stuff. Do I need to mention that I now have a room that resembles a jumble sale with piles of clothes to be put away, ironed or hung and all those hangers!!! The children went to bed, I read them a lovely bedtime story (book form the library trip) and they went to sleep peacefully, you know when you look at them asleep and they look like Angels. I actually managed an hour on my own, sewing. I sat at the kitchen table and listened to 'the creative moms' podcast whilst cutting out the shapes from the felted wool, I then got all the bits together, buttons, backs, pins, floss etc...and moved to the lounge and watched The Holiday DVD. I real chick flick, but such a great feel good movie and it worked very well whilst getting some sewing done. (Over Christmas, before I started my blog, my Best Friend , who sadly for us, now lives in Australia, came over with her three children for a week, we went to watch this film together as a little Mommy treat, it brought back lots of happy memories of a great time). SO these are the results, back and front.
So on to the weekend this morning I was woken by a little person wanting to play, It was around 6.00am, I should not moan as at least he slept through the night, which if you have been reading for a while this is not usual, although he has done it a few times now. The children had a few hours play, dressing up...Buzz Light Year and Spider Man trying to get into the shower with you in the morning produces a whole heap of giggling. Eventually we all got ready and headed off for the first fundraising event of the day. Mommy put on her new shoes!!! OK I have a secret, I will share it with you, they are not new, I bought them last year, put them in my wardrobe and forgot about them, on the change over from winter to summer I found them...
How could I have done this, they are so cute and VERY me! I have a problem with my pelvis, when I had my two babes my pelvis separated and I was on crutches for a couple of years, I am fine now as long as I know my limit's, one of those is high heels, the pain afterwards is just is not worth it. So its flatties most of the time so I like to buy them with a bit of fun in mind.
Anyway off to 'Narnia', my older child is slowly working through all the Narnia books and he adores them, so when he heard this event was taking place he was very excited. For 50p, the children got a drink each and entrance through the wardrobe into Narnia world...The place was very well decorated, someone had taken a lot of time and effort to do this, and the children could make lots of craft related goodies, my children picked the Crown and Shield to make, although there was a lot more they could have done. Not bad for 50p, sadly even after all the effort was put in not many people turned up, I hope lots more did once we had a left, having worked on many found raising events in my time I know how heart breaking this can be. We also came home with various books, knitted (very colourful) toys, chocolate and bits and bobs from the various stalls. The boys have gone for lunch and the house is quite, I thought I would catch up with my blog and then get on with the rest of the Busy schedule. See you Monday.

PS Thanks guys for all the support on the Road Rage incident, I am amazed that something similar has happened to so many of you, its hard to believe there are so many people out there with this kind of behaviour. Your emails meant alot, thanks.

YAY! "New" shoes. It's like going thrifting in your own house! And that shield and crown! I wish we had an event like that here. I would have went, even without kids!

On crutches for "years"??? Oh my. That pelvic thing is called PSD or something like that? I think that here in the US most doctors don't even believe such a thing can happen, but I am here to tell you, ever since Jack my hips are still killing me! Aye.

I want those shoes! They are really lovely - lucky you finding them like that!

Natasha said...

I love those shoes ! (and the black skirt seems great from the hint on the pic) I saw some similar on the Sundance catalog but they didn't fit my budget !
