Just fooling around...

I am having such a nice time at the moment. Funny when the kids are off school how relaxed it is around here. Yer, OK! so I lose those precious hours in the morning when I do the housework and blog, but not having to be in and out of the car, having time to walk, slow down and just enjoy my kids company. Bliss... The first day of the holiday was Friday, my youngest was still in nursery, so the older one and I had special time and went out for a tea and chat (he had juice). It is funny, I so never wanted the baby days to end, but we are in a whole new time now, we talk and laugh and share our idea's on the world, its a great stage. Once we had collected little brother we just mooched around the garden and then a trip to story time at the library, this brought lots of memories back for my older one as we used to go every week before he started school and do you know the librarian remembered him, he was so pleased. On Saturday it was 'Mommy's Day' it was my patchwork course, this was the block we did this month, and next month we are on to putting the quilt together with its boarders etc...a bit scared of this part.
So with the holidays up on us the craft box is all ready, full of last minute make and do! I wounder what they will make this week...See the plastic box, this was a bargin, only £3.00 and full of glitter, lolly sticks, pom poms, fibers, googly eyes etc. COOL!
To add to the joy a little thrifting, my new apron, such a lovely print, sorry it totally clashed with with raspberries. This little sweetie was 35p!
I leave you with some of the fooling around in the garden, playing tents, as only a four year old can. Archie is most interested in this. He is so loving having all the extra company.
Let me tell you he has been a tinker since Charlie and Lola (our GP's see previous posts) arrived. He got extra cuddly which I though real cute, then after a nearly a year of being house trained he started peeing in the house. HORROR!!! Anyway I think we have got him sorted now, lots of extra love and cuddles and he especially stays around me at the moment I think he is reassured he is part of this family. As for Charlie and Lola, just too cute, they chat all the time, their little noises are so cute. Have a good week and I will catch up with you in a few days as I am spending some time with the children.

Just a personal note to say thank you to all those who have read my blog and those who have supported me with lovely comments. Its my 100 post soon and in true blogging tradition I am going to do a little freebie. So watch out for that post, hopefully some people might delurk and say HI. I am thinking about either some fabric or some wool, depending on what the winner is in to, or if not a little gift, anyway something that would make you happy to come through your post box!!!

I too love the slower pace of life that the school holidays bring as I work in a school office so their holidays are also my holidays :o)

You are having a time of it! Your quilt block looks lovely, Archie is still cute and your children are probably the most loved on the block!

It sounds like your enjoying your half term. It's always good idea to have lots of make and dos ready, isn't it? With this weather we've been doing lots of stuff involving glue!
