My Creative Space 'handmade jumble'
Welcome to this week's Creative Space as hosted every Thursday by Kirsty at Kootoyoo. Mine is a big busy jumble & mish mash of things on the go this week, with children doing silly things!! So bare with me . . . i've been flat out sewing for Shop Handmade which is opening next week, planning a school P&C Cross Country BBQ & Mother's Day Stall, plus the trip to Sydney for Easter!!
My big boy needed a new laundry bag for 'camp'. Funnily enough, he was the only soldier who turned up to war with a pink & yellow striped laundry bag & it 'broke'. Hmmmm . . . maybe this is more his butch style, but doubt it will be as easy to find after laundry day!!
The Easter Bunny really did come on Sunday. My 4 children were so excited & couldn't wait to tell their grandparents. My father, who is not a fan of the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus for that matter, was thrilled to tell them Sydney's North Shore was over run with rabbits & they all need shooting. Um, nice one Dad!!
Take a look at my middle daughter, she looks innocent enough, doesn't she?? Can you imagine she started a stone & seed throwing contest (aimed towards our car!!) with siblings & cousins in Bowral??!!
Now this, her twin sister, innocent?? Never!! Just as my eldest brother (host of Easter Sunday in Sydney) asked if my children were safe playing by the pool . . . in one went. Clearly we were busy eating this amazing platter of delights instead!! No, we were watching, we watched her go right in!!
So after a week like that . . . i'm exhausted, emotional, missing my husband & desperate for the school holidays to start on Friday afternoon. I drove home today with every intention of cooking a lovely quiche with salad, which soon downgraded to Spanish omlettes, but ended up as scrambled eggs with smoked ham & spinach, grainy bread & me being terribly distracted by the latest Country Road catalogue which came in today's mail. Maybe i should have read Donna Hay's latest magazine with 50 Fast Dinners instead?? Love Posie
