Happy New Year.....
Hope you all had a great new year always a highlight in our household to see in the new year together and a time to reflect on a great year past and looking forward to another great year to come.
Well saying this...... this week did not start as well as it should have really we had an unexpected trip to our local A & E with Jasper as Madison said he wanted to be more sparkly so after covering him with body glitter and him rubbing it in to his eyes which did irritate them, all in the time it took me to brush my hair and Joe to brush his teeth!!. However a reassuring check over by the nurse and doctor he is fine and by the afternoon all the glitter had made it's way out. Needless to say I don't think Madison will do that again. I have never seen such concern from a 4 year old for her little brothers well fair, although I'm sure there will be more brother sister shenanigan's for many more years yet.
Christmas is now officially over in our house after all our decorations have been taken down, dispite the protesting and moaning from madison that the house now looks boring without them! gotta love how they are so straight to the point. We have welcomed in a new school term this week, dispite being blown about and drenched during this weeks wonderful weather. ( Joys of the school run!!) . It was so lovely to see everyone after the christmas break all the children recharged and full of energy, and all the parents needing about a month to recover from all the festive fun.
The one thing I have been neglecting since becoming a mummy is my pasion for craft and discoveing new hidden talents and as a starting point for christmas I was brought Kirstie Allsopes Craft. well that has kick started my craft mojo along with the benifit to save money, especially in todays economic climate. After seeing a couple of bandana bibs in a shop which I fell in love with instantly for Jasper, shame the same could not have been said for the price !!! So after some research on how to make these lovely bibs i decided to give it ago and well I was quite surprised with my end result.
