Birthday Weekend

It feels as if I have only just had (that) birthday but earlier this month here we were again. Miss I was incrediably excited and couldn't wait to start ripping open the parcels and cards and rapidly became quite impatient with me. I received some gorgeous things and a delicious cheescake from Gails.....lasted us for days.

I received some lovely gifts including some gorgeous books. I am determined to get back into Granny Squares and hope this book will inspire/teach me. I hadn't come across the gorgeous Belle and Boo Craft book and could spend ages looking at all the beautiful things to make.

This idea with buttons looks so simple but so effective and a great way to use up that overflowing button tin:

I would love to make this beanbag for a child's bedroom:

or perhaps a little Boo....

And I was delighted to receive a copy of the eagerly awaited Little Treasures by Pia Bijkerk:

For the day, we took the children on a mystery trip, and when they awoke from their car snooze we were at the Christmas Tree Farm in Kent. Quick picnic and then into the farm we went. Isobel was very nervous around the animals....but she soon settled down and Elis was in heaven.

When I originlly wrote this, it was  Isobel's last day at nursery - felt quite an emotional benchmark in her life as it is been such a major part of her world. Luckily some friends are going onto school with her and others we will definitely be staying in touch with. She was thrilled to take a cake into nursery - one for her and being the bonkers woman I am a box of cupcakes made at 6.30am that morning.....

So for another year....
