Well I am now starting to get a little frustrated with my lack of movement post op. I feel OK if not a little tired but I am sore. So the mind is willing BUT sadly the body is not. I am having to limit myself to what I can do and any energy is given to the children as they are off school at the moment, which is great but I would like to take them out to places or even just knock a ball around the garden with them...The kitchen has turned into a messy art room and we are just making bits and bobs as we go along and I have to admit to using the TV when things get a little too much (shocking). I am a great believer in that 'making' is a part of mothering which is great therapy for the soul, so I have been managing to do a little crafting time. Remember the pegs I made? well I had a little order come in for them...Which of course meant I NEEDED to buy more buttons as my gingham supply was getting low and I bought a couple of lucky bags for the boys...they have loved playing with them although the mess is quite alarming!!! My buttons came from The Button Company I usually only get them when I see their stand at shows but needs must...Look at the box of loveliness that arrived...OK maybe its just me that finds a box of buttons exciting!!!
Oh its one dilemma after another when it comes to selling your stuff, so much more fun when your just making for the fun of it...One of my staple pressies for the children's friends is personalised T' shirts. I buy a standard Tee, in fact I have a whole box of them in different sizes just waiting to be used as they come in useful for rainy day projects with the children, they get the fabric pens out!!! I buy these cute little wooden animal topped hangers and decorate the T'shirt according to the personal character of the child and make a matching label and there you are for under £5.00 you have a cool present.
So on hearing it was a special little girls birthday whilst I was stuck in bed I played about with the crochet hook.
Then I sat and had another go at that crochet heart, you know it looks a little better...may be there is hope after all...
