Oh so tired

I feel like I am chasing my tail. Should be at a rehearsal tonight but after my weekend in a caravan in the snow I am barely functioning. Really struggled to get things done today but tomorrow I will be back on track I am sure.

Giving thanks

I am not American and I don't celebrate thanksgiving but today I realise I have alot to be thankful for. My parents for there unfaltering love and support. Even when I have done things differently from their wishes they are always there for me. There love for each through good times and bad is inspiring to me and has instilled in me the belief that's good marriage is worth working at.
My friends ( and i am lucky enough to include my sister in that number) who cheer me up when I feel down. Praise me when I do well. Help me when I am struggling . Be honest with me when I am being foolish. I am a lucky girl.
My children who are simply amazing. Everyday they do something to delight me. Easily my greatest acheivement and every day I grow because of them.
And last but not least my Husband who is my best friend. Without him I would be lost , with him I can acheive anything. Marrying him was the best decision I ever made.

So Thank You. I love you all. Xxx

Felt Star Tree ornaments

I saw these on a blog over the weekend but of course when I came to have a go this morning I couldn't remember where! Must remember to bookmark!! Anyhoo I decided to make it up and I'm quite pleased with the results. A quick easy project and the second was already miles better than the first . Will definately make more and if you have older children than mine I am sure you could get them involved too. I just let Tegan pick the felt and the buttons.

Why do you blog?

Someone asked me this today and I wasn't really sure how to answer. I think I use my blog as a diary first and foremost. It's interesting to look back and see what sort of things I have been pondering. While I write this blog for me with no expectation of anyone Reading it , I am always delighted , thrilled even , to find that no only has someone been reading but they have commented too! I read alot of blogs now and I have found great inspiration from them, for activities for the kids , projects for me and ideas for my life. I am sure my blog is not inspirational but it would be nice to think someone saw something on my blog and thought 'ooo now there's a good idea!' .
So in answer to the question I said 'no idea! But I am glad I do!!'

What about you? Why do you blog? And what makes you pick a blog for your regular reading list?

Winter sun

Bliss . A lovely crisp winters day. The sin is shining and despite my severe aversion to the cold I have braved it to the park. One eye on the kids , one eye on my book , fresh air and calm. I love it!I'm suffering with a lack of motivation at the moment but just getting up and out has already done wonders for my mood!

Turning 4

No not me! That would be weird eh? My daughter is 4 on Sunday. I can't quite believe it! I have been a mother 4 whole years.When Tegan was born I was a completely different person than the person I am now. I am better for having her. She is amazing and I love the bones off her :)

In your dreams?

What do you dream about? I dream about blogging it would seem! Posted some great stuff last night... cept it's not here now! Lol! I need a device that records my dreams and blogs them for me. Wait a minute not sure I've thought this through ... some of my dreams are not broadcastable ;)

What's the weirdest thing you've dreamt about?

Had an important question answered today and while the answer wasn't the one I was strictly hoping for I know it was the right one...for now. I also know that my plans are now in motion... and my hubby and I are definately on the same page :) . This week I have started looking after my niece while her Mum works. What a delight she is! The same age as my son and such a cheeky character. I just know those two are gonna run rings around me! Planning some craft activitys for us all over the next few weeks. Suggestions please for a 4 year old and two 2 years olds :)

Feeling the urge to create...

.... But can't think what. I think it's time to get the sewing machine back out. I quite fancy making some drawstring bags! But with limited skills this might be too ambitious.I have a hat and a scarf on the go crochet wise but I am afraid I have got a bit bored with them. Mmmmm I just need inspiration to strike I guess! Where do you look for inspiration?
