And the winner is....

To be announced tomorrow...no I am not trying to tease you, I just want someone other than myself to draw out the winner so I shall have to wait until my babes are home from school!!!Posts have been a little infrequent of late as I try desperately to find my new rhythm and new role as a stay at home Mom who's just waved bye bye to her youngest as he goes through the big old school doors with a hesitant glance over his shoulder and a plee for 'Mommy come with me...' This is not helped by the fact that the small village school is going through some changes and one being no parents allowed to take their little ones into the class room...heart breaking for me I can tell you. So this last week I have wondered around the house in a pathetic state with no car to get out and about, mostly with tears in my eyes. Today is the first day I feel OK about the whole thing. SO when I am down I shop, usually fabric...check out the new fabric...it arrived two days after my order and with not one but two free fat quarters. I am so impressed I thought it deserved a mention as the owner of the shop was so nice to me and combined all my postage as well. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/SALS-FABRICS-AND-CRAFTS_W0QQsspagenameZMEQ3aFQ3aSTQQtZkm If you get yourself over there and are tempted to purchase please say hi to Sal from me. Her shop is http://salsfabrics.co.uk/
Mmmm now what goodies to make with it...
I have also noticed that the thrift and charity shops are now back to selling the wool sweaters so I have been doing a little felting and designing a new coat pin/corsage with tweed. I am sure I will share with you the outcome of both. So I have been in my sewing room a lot and I have started on the big clear out of toys so I can claim the whole room, the spare bedroom is going to be made into a den for the children, keeping me company throughout the day so I am not completely on my own has been my faithful bunny...Archie, he is such a poppet!!! He so enjoys the company. As for the piggies (Charlie and Lola) they are still fighting...I think I am getting somewhere though, I am having to give them lots of individual cuddles and they are now a lot calmer, but they are still nipping each other and sleeping at opposite ends of their house, this makes me very sad.
Why the 'Super Boy' picture, well why not...indulge me as I am missing him like crazy...I thank you all for your lovely caring comments about him, we had a lovely day (except for the cough obviously) on Monday...Big cuddles all day and we even took a long nap together in the afternoon...the next day he was well enough to go into school...I was quite upset about this, not that I wanted him poorly, it took a lot for me to take him in, I thought...Oh just one more day. But that would have been wrong, right???

I will post the winner of 'Little Pinkie' tomorrow, she is very excited...she wants to take a trip round all your homes as you have made her feel very welcome!!!

It's difficult to watch them grow up and there is nothing wrong with keeping him home to have a special day with you.

You’re doing a great job and it’s no shame you want your little one home with you for some quality time!

It's so hard when your youngest goes to school... especially when you can't go and settle them into class.. they have stopped this at our school too for all children even at the reception stage.I think it is a shame although the schools view is that they are usually better when we have gone and by us hanging around it can take them longer to settle. Tough i know. I think they are too young at 4 to go to school but don't get me started on that. My advice to you is peek through the windows! I often do! And if they are ill .. keep them home as long as you need and enjoy all those cuddles. Here's looking forward to the weekend. Hope you have a lovely one. ginny x

I found it took me a term and a bit to get used to not having Ruth around during the day, and we have now got a dog so I have someone to talk to. It is really hard to pack them off every day. I'm sure it will get easier though.
Lovely fabrics though - that should cheer you up a bit!

Oh hugs to you - it is so hard to see them struggling their way into school with all their little bags and bits & pieces. We have a class assembly to go to tomorrow - I can't wait!

I'm the woman who desperately wanted to keep her July born son back a year from school but was told that if I did not only would he not be guaranteed a place but that he would also start in Year 1!
I can't understand why anyone is desperate to pack their children off, they're at home for such a short time and when they're gone the house does feel empty.
Reclaim that sewing room and lose yourself in fabric, that's what I say!

Have a lovely weekend

That looks like a lovely way of cheering yourself up.

The picture of your son is very cute!

I'm not surprised you're missing your wee lad - look at his gorgeous curls, he's such a cute boy. The 1st day of school is such a momenteous time for us mums - it takes us a long while to adjust! So here's wishing you a weekend packed full of smiles and fun with your boys - happy thoughts to tide you through the next school week x
