Where is everybody?

Hi!  Just an update to say I haven't gone away - my life has just got a lot of demands at the moment and I'm letting a few things slip, not intentionally being slack, just trying to retain a teeny tiny bit of sanity :)  It's the time of year for the high school ball, and I've been knee deep in ruffles and chiffon for the past few daysas I produce an evening dress for my lovely girl.  Although I'm very excited for HB I will be mighty pleased when Friday evening is over.  And then I have orders for knitted gloves to fill ... placed by Little Man and friends as they freeze on the cross country course, poor little mites.  I still can't get my head around roasting hot summers and cold, cold winters.  Weird ;)

Work is going well, but it's a huge learning curve as I learn how to juggle home, kids, hubby and work and get to spend quality time with my family.  If any of you have any tips, I'd love to hear them!

Will show you some of the progress I'm making with the dress and the finished article by Friday.

Love to all xxx

Create it with Lego!

Forget about Cluedo.  Forget about Monopoly.  If you want creativity and a good time when you play a game with your little ones, this is the game to play!  Create-It by Lego.  So much fun should not be possible when playing board games!   I've been so busy with my new jpb, everyone has lost out on quality time with me, so when Little Man asked if he could possibly monopolize some of my time for a quick game I couldn't say no.  

And it was just so lovely.  Just him and I.  We played 2 rounds.  He won.  Both times.

Then we souped up our creations and had a fab time making car and boat and helicopter noises whilst driving our creations around the dog (and our dog around the bend) and the front room.  Awesome!  What a great way to start the day :)
