This and that

My blogging today is like my life, all over the place, about this and that and generally off routine. I am trying to go with the flow and establish some sort of rhythm, but you know, its not happening today. So I think I shall throw caution to the wind and see what happens if I just let go of trying to control it. I feel much better after my emotional out pouring yesterday and again thank you for you comments, I will be emailing you personally when I can. Some words of wisdom going those comments. So amongst the emotions this week it is a happening week. Its our school PTA summer fun day and as usual I am in charge of organising the craft room. I love doing this, but this Saturday I have no one to take the children around the school whilst I do the crafts. So I have roped someone in to cover for me and I will stay as long as my children will tolerate it, bless them. Its so hard doing these things when you have to keep an eye on your own children, I want to do so much more, but I have to realise I have limits without support. So I will be organising it and setting up, lots of running around this week getting all the last minute bits for it.
We are setting up to make grass heads. The craft bits are pin wheels and flying bugs, plus an open table to make cards, lots of cutting and sticking I might even venture in to taking some of my stamps. I am a little worried about the ink pads getting ink of clothing, anyone any thoughts on this? This week it is my week for flowers in Church Busy! busy! busy!
SO you will be surprised to know I finished off knitting the handbag, I just kneed to felt it now.
Talking of bags, this is just a little snap and not a good one (the light was so poor) of a bag I made for my friend...Hey Caroline are you using it? Its just the right size for nappies and wipes and all the baby stuff...NOT!!!

So I need to get off to the post office, BIG PARCELS to send out...The photos today are as much of a mish mash as I am at the moment. The first one is a snap, I saw it on a walk with the children and thought that's cute. The second one is a corner of my home...a brave picture to show you from me as its one my bedside tables. Only a few more posts till the 100th post and the liberty fabric giveaway...

P.S. The visit to the vet proved to be 99% certain Charlie and Lola are both girls, I guess they are just a little frisky...I wanted to type so much cheeky stuff here, but I have restrained myself because they are just to cute...

Oh I know that feeling, school fairs and the pressure to be everywhere and do everything!!! I'm sure things will be okay on the day and you can only do what you can do!

I can't believe your bedside table hasn't collapsed under all the weight! J/K Your boys are so good, I'm sure the PTA function will go off without a hitch! Especially if you set them up as project experts to help the other children that come through! Then they will feel important.

The bag was being used up until babe came along - now I'm sporting one of those practical but very unstylish baby changing bags. Still, style is somewhat relaxed when you are wearing baby sick where there used to be a nice corsage or brooch!!

I love the dry-stone-wall picture - you've opened up the homesick valve again! I know what you mean about helping at functions and balancing it with your own childcare/involvement. I've missed going round so many school/pta functions with my kids and seeing it through their eyes because I've been so caught up with helping. Don't feel guilty about taking some time out to do that with them even if it is through necessity rather than desire you can't revisit these times once they're gone. Having said that it is very nice when you reach the point where they can be trusted and you deem it safe for them to go round independently - such a grown up feeling and it will come sooner than you think. Lovely bag, can't wait to see the knitted one. Hope the weather is kind for you at the PTA function
