..............pay me to stay at home and do crafty things with my children?
Because I really enjoy it.
Even if it does get a bit stressy when everyone is asking me to help them at the same time!
We've really enjoyed making cardboard horses this afternoon using this wonderful tutorial from Ann Wood after seeing Katie's recent creations - we even had two little friends making them with us - and this is our first collection
and here is the current Locket ensemble galloping up the stairs
from the top:
William Wordsworth (Dot), Toffee (Fred),
Ninevah (Daisy - made with a page from a children's bible), Nameless (Me), Sea-shell (Daisy)
Biba (Dot), Babushka (Me), Frank Sonata (Dot)
Even though my hands are aching from cutting out all that cardboard, I can tell that there will be plenty more horses on the horizon - they are so effective!
Meanwhile, the cleaning-little-Lockets have turned into caterers and we have had Cafe Go-Go Food and Cafe Moonlight in operation today.
So far we have enjoyed chocolate milkshakes, ham and cheese croissants and rocky-road muffins and we have been promised more treats tomorrow - I could get used to letting the children do all the cooking - especially when the waitress is so charming
and brings such beautifully presented smiley-face food!
(apparently this is me!)
And there is real cause for celebration today as we finally have a proper mirror in the house!
And a very beautiful one too
With a very beautiful reflection!
