I'm still here!

Sorry I have not around much lately what with the summer holidays, and getting prepared for a show I am doing this weekend, I have been a bit slack with blogging. I have been checking up with you lot, so I know all the gossip in your world but I have not been providing any of my own.

Well what have I been up to, I have redesigned my Website which should be going live in the next few days, I have got to iron out a few hitches there. I have been doing bits of sewing for a fair I have this weekend at Richard Herrod Playing field in Nottingham.

I have also been sorting out all my produce, potato's, tomato and spring onions, I have to say they were and are lovely. I have also made my first lot of jam, I have to say it was a success but it did test me at times.

Catch up soon.

Freedom (to sew)!

After my difficult week last week (which according you lot is quite normal, gives me some kind of comfort), I made the decision to put my little dear into a local nursery every Thursday afternoon. The idea behind this was to give me a bit of regular free time to do what I want to do, and also to stop hubbo getting ear ache. Today was her 1st day and she loved it thank god. This meant I did what I wanted to do, after doing a few chores a got down to some sewing. The houses below were finished off, they are going to be used by my sister as part of her PR strategy that she is planning for her wedding stationary business. The pencil roll was a new thing for me and I have to say I am really chuffed with it, I think I may give it to my niece for part of her birthday present, if little dear gives the OK.

I also managed to get some Lavender hearts done for a show I have at the end of the month!
Anyway must go as 'The Good Life' is on and I really love it.

No one said it was going to be this hard!

I don't know if it it just a holiday thing, but this little cutie pie has turned into a monster since we have come back from holiday. I know there is not the normal routine around her at the moment as we are in the middle of school holidays but oh my god!

  • She's stroppy.
  • She's showing off!
  • She's tired in the day as she is not going to bed until 9.30, even though I am doing the normal routine an she is in bed for 7.30.
  • She almost a little hyper active at times.
  • She's wanting 100% of my attention.
  • She's not listening, I am forever counting to 5 to get things done.
  • She's got to have the last word.
  • She's been getting up to mischief and destroying her bedroom.

Things are a little weird around her at moment in the fact that her daddy is working a lot at the moment but he is coming home every night but not until after she is gone to bed. This has happened before as hubbo works for himself. But she seems to be really missing him. Things have got that bad around her I have arranged for her to start at a nursery school every Thursday afternoon starting tomorrow. Both Grandparents have gone off the radar at the moment in terms of offering to have her, I am sure if I asked they would but I won't. I even went to meet an old friend on Monday for a few hours and little dear was that bad, she said " What's happened to her". I was not upset with my friend saying it I was upset by what she had said, because it was so true.

I'm not asking for miracle cures or anything here I just wanted to get it off my chest as its a big thing in my life at the moment.

Thanks for listening!
