Ok, so I'm a day late posting this but I was busy!!!!! I hope you all had a lovely day!
I had a great Mother's Day yesterday with some gorgeous cards from the children
and this brilliant painting of me and poem from Fred in his Mother's Day Assembly on Friday.
The children bought me some nice bubble bathy things from the school coffee morning on Saturday and I helped them choose this book from Amazon!!!!
I've already started making one of the piglets - but unfortunately it looks a bit like a hide rug at the moment!
We spent yesterday with my mum and dad and my brother and his wife and had a fantastic lunch. Dottycookie has already blogged about the healthy pudding they had yesterday that even I could eat on my diet but look what my sister-in-law had made for yesterday................
It would have been rude not to have some wouldn't it?
Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it (just don't be surprised if I don't have a major weight loss at WW on Tuesday!)
I managed to make a present in time for my mum and my lovely mother-in-law - although there was some very last minute sewing together.
When we were growing up in Hampshire, because my dad was the local GP and also a massive bird fan, every time anyone found an injured (and often fairly dead) bird on the road they would bring it to us to be "made better" - I grew up with a menagerie of barn owls and kestrels a one-eyed, broken winged Little Owl called Nelson, and every sort of small bird, as well as all the chickens, ducks, geese, pheasants, racing pigeons and budgies that we already owned. So when I thought about wrapping Mum's present I decided an aerated cardboard box was the best form of packaging
For her very own Little Owl - Baby Wol.
Here he is before departure with his Dad (Wol)
He is made from my Dad's tweed trousers and checked shirt with some shop-bought cotton velvet and is very cute and fat.
He settled in well and has decided to perch on top of the telly in the kitchen where he can watch over his new servants.
Unsurprisingly Mum and Dad didn't fall for my "I've got a sick bird for you" trick.
But Mr Locket's poor Mummy really did begin to worry that we had indeed bought her "a pet mouse" when I presented her with the same box yesterday evening!
She was very relieved to discover a friendly and very un-real, woolly bunny - Molly, who has, like Baby Wol, taken up residence by the telly!
I'll leave you today with Fred's "new invention" - it's a "find all mummy's missing needles by dragging the magnet bumper from my Thomas train up and down all the gaps between the floorboards" - in fact it worked so well that he actually discovered 3! But I reckon the children lost them - not me!!!
