I like the sound of this.
A good way to live.

I'm determined to finish this blanket before the winter sets in. Do you ever have a project that never seems to get finished? Well this is mine. I will not be beaten.

I can tell winter is on its way, soon as it starts getting colder, I feel compelled to get the candles out and stock up on dvds. I never watch telly during the summer months but its all I want to do in winter, snuggle up and hide.
I really fancy watching this movie. Sounds interesting.

Deer head craft kit

Little man had a cold and sneezed a big juicy one into my face, now two days later I'm suffering with a cold. So I'm rotting in bed before I pick him up from school and thought I'd finish my animal kit off. Its a 3D picture for the wall.

The kit comes with 4 cardboard sheets with pop out numbered parts and you just have to paint the parts and slit them together, no glue or anything. Really easy to assemble.

Didn't take long to put together.


Here's the end result, I think it looks good, just a bit of fun really. I haven't put any photos in my frames yet, need to get them developed.

The kit was £2.50 from Lidl and the grey picture frames were a £1.00 from Pound World. So not to bad in price.

Joy riding, oh yeah

The bus driver has left me all alone on the bus. He has nipped to the shops to have a wee and get some cat litter......nice thanks for telling me that.

The evil me is saying
The good me is saying

Mary Poppins handbag

As I dropped little man off at school today, my heart sank, I had forgotten to bring his soft toy.  My heart did recovered rather quickly when I discovered most of the other mums had also forgotten as well.
The teacher is doing a learning session from the book "The bear hunt" and all the children were meant to bring in their teddy bears or soft toys.
However all was not lost, before I had a child my handbag was clean and fresh, I carried lipsticks, eye shadows, perfumes and other pretty lady stuff. Then I had a child and now my bag consists of half eaten packets of Haribo sweets covered in fluff. Action mans left boot. An array of rather heavy hot wheel cars and my salvation, here it comes........a large spider man figure, hurray. Instead of going on a bear hunt, he'll have to go on a spider man hunt and just deal with it!

Cross stitch map

I've been scouring the holiday brochures of late, I have wander lust stirring in my bones again. Anyway found this really good cross stitch kit. Every time you visit a new place you can cross stitch the country in a pattern or block colour. Thought it was different, I like the idea of it.  
I've been dropping hints to my husband, testing the waters. I fancy going to Australia for the year, dropping everything and going on an adventure. I don't think he's to keen on the idea though, he's a home body at heart. Looks like I'll have to settle for a 2 week holiday instead. If I had it my way we'd live in a camper van and never come back, I'm terrible.

Yoga or Crochet

Husband took little man to school today so I could have a break. I did plan on doing a yoga class but instead vegetated in bed with my crochet, ahhh heaven without all the stretching and sweating.
I had my legs crossed in a crochet position in this photo, that counts  as a form of yoga doesn't it.
Found some cheap cotton ages ago and have finally decided on a project. I saw this design on face book, a lady had completed it and I thought it looked nice.
I found the pattern on the internet its a free one, but I don't have a printer, so just thought I'd quickly make my own pattern on graph paper.
My poorly other half is off work with a duff leg, so whilst little man was at school, we had a hobby chill out.
(Notice the paint stains on the bed, I'll let him off just this once, because he is hurt)
He's thawing our faggots for tea.

Just have to finish my blanket and I'll start.

Gel pens

First time using gel pens, love them. I've just noticed I've missed a bit at the top and corners. I'm knackered, its late and I need to go to bed, it will have to wait.
