Family fun, Beach walks and Treasury Time...

1. Family Fun - Lovely Lulu - my dear sister is soon moving to Berlin, so she came to Cornwall to visit with my Pa this weekend. It was just wonderful to spend such happy times together. Lots of fun beachy walks with the kids, and girly catch-ups and giggles...I'm REALLY going to miss her :(

2. Super sales - well, not quite but the balls are rolling in my little Etsy store, this weekend a pair of Mustard Yellow Boot Cuffs and a little girls Ruffle layer skirt.

3. Treasury Time - "You make me happy, when skies are grey.."

Crochet, Pinterest & Sleeping Children!

1. Crochet - The shop is being loaded up with more items daily, my boot cuffs were even mentioned on the Crochet Confections Daily over the weekend - yey!

2. Pinterest - the British Sellser on Etsy Pinterest Boards have some lovely things on them, as well as a couple of my items, yippee.

3. Mega sleep had by all - at last, proper rest, its quite remarkable how one good night's sleep can utterly change the way you feel - ahhhh :)

Boot cuffs, baking and boredom...

Well, a lovely productive weekend is being had so far.

1. Friday spent baking lots of delicious things with the boy for a lovely afternoon tea with my lovely grandparents (who brought beautiful daffodils and they really made me smile!) ... Booster bars and Banana cake, as well as a big batch of freezer meals - I'm going to love coming home from work knowing that that's another thing not to worry about next week!

2. Boot Cuffs - headbands, ear warmers, fingerless mittens and pyjamas, all things aded to the Etsy and Folksy shops this weekend :)

3. Boredom - an odd one, but definitely made Ross and I smile at 3.30 am when Charlie wandered into our room and told us he was bored... sleeping at night not exciting enough then Charlie? My word!

Bloomin' marvellous!

1.  In-spite of having a poorly little boy today, which is horrid for poor little Charlie, a little bit of happiness in seeing my bloomers as the lead image on the Babies & Children section on Folksy - steps

2. Its sunny - which always makes one smile :)

3. Cooking up a storm - as we're homebound with the poorly boy, a perfect opportunity to make lots of meals for the week has arisen, a little organisational gem!

Happy Saturday!

1. Blustery beach walks - we had a proper blow out on the beach today - kids LOVED it, especially Edie - there were loads of dogs (she loves them) and she just ran around woofing away - such a joy to watch!

2. It's the simple things that make you happy - I had a rare and cheeky lie in today - slept until 8am - now that is what I call bliss!

3. Stocking my Etsy shop - I am determined this year to give it my all, added more items today, some little girls crocheted headbands. Looking forward to adding the boot cuffs I'm currently trying to perfect the pattern for over the next couple of days.

Happy Days :)

Naptime Crafternoon Delight

1. Hooked on small shoes - It's official, crochet is my my new favourite craft thing. Trying to perfect a little pattern for little shoes, here is a sneak peek of one little lonely to make the next one :)

2. Organisational Nirvana - oh yeah, I feel smug, freezer cleared out and inventory taken, this should help massively with meal planning, is it one step to far though?!

3. Getting messy - Playdough and Painting for Charlie and I this afternoon while Edie napped like a trouper! He loved it, me too. We made play dough from a recipe made with blackcurrant tea to colour - AMAzing!

2012 - Week one, nearly done!

1. Resolutions...running (so far so good), not sweating the small stuff (because that's not what is important in life) and reaching for the stars...why not?

2. Amazing DiY'd Honey, Brown Sugar and milk face mask. I stumbled upon this delicious recipe for the mask here, it's divine. My face feels utterly lovely, like I've scrubbed 20 layers of winter away.. Easy, cheap, homemade goodness :)

3. Weekend fun - looking forward to a nice quite bit of weekend fun with the family, gardening, baking, a nice long walk and happy times with the babies! Perfection.

Monday January 2nd 2012 - New Year Brilliantness!

Today's Three:

1. Start as you mean to go on - LOVELY (?!) morning run, got to get the fitness thing sussed this year! It was so worth it after I had done it! Felt great - brilliant start to the day, now just to make sure I continue with the sentiment...

2. Crocheting - simply addictive, that is all!

3. Christmas - last mention, I'm sure its still ok to, (the tree is still up) has been such wonderful Family time. I'm back to work tomorrow and can't believe how quickly the time has flown(!) it has been so amazing to have time off to spend with the children doing nice things, beach walks, the zoo, the aquarium, long woodland walks etc... Rather sad to wipe the message from Father Christmas off the Blackboard wall though...
