Or rather distracted by twitter and /or facebook ! Still been a productive few weeks, dd turned 2 ! She was, of course, thoroughlly spoiled and she deserved it. A small family gathering at home, with lots of yummy food and pretty cakes. I cannot believe that she is now two, nor that her 'big' brother will be four in two months time ... where has the last few years gone.
playing intensly with the button board
We had a fantastic day out at the safari park, which both kids loved and of course wonderful animals aside, there is the biggest playpark. Ds had a fabulous time showing off and climbing *very* high nets, and going down the biggest chutes - hard to believe a few months ago he was aprehensive of them.
And ... it IS the Easter Holidays here so I'm not feeling too bad at having some lazy(ish) days. Ds and I are still working away on the nature box and his little photo book to go with it, so hopefully that will be finished by the time he returns to nursery. On a crafty note, I have been trying to figure out facebook pages (arggh !) and also, been making lots more flower pots, and some pretty pendants ... which I will photo and upload shortly.
Pottering and doing *account paperwork* - why didn't I stick to my plan of little and monthly ... ????? All done now I think, files zipping down the wire - toes crossed all is well (numbers are not my strong point).
I am now exhausted after the busiest day with flumps, and will leave you with a delightful photograph we took on holiday the other week ... DS and I are making a nature book and box.
Just sitting in the woods it was - bless the little creature.
Catching up after my holiday, to find I was given the follow award from two lovely fellow bloggers Bod for tea and also from Elle & Belle

No matter what I make, or create, or turn from old to new - I can never do this ...
DS aged 3.5 made this for me at nursery and even tried to write his own name. The flowers are just gorgeous, hee hee I love the way he's packed as many as he can in this tiny pot. But most importantly I LOVED how proud he was and how pleased with it he was when he gave it to me.
I will remember that look forever, his big blue eyes, beaming smile, he had that look of 'I love you mummy' and boy was I choked !
Yes, I did shed a tear, my beautiful clever little boy. He's come a long way from the tiny, notgrowing inside, induced way too early, 4lb button that he was, and he's doing so well and I'm so proud of him. And I feel blessed every day, to have my two beautiful little people (DD almost 2), and I adore them so much. That's what the maternity matters means to me ... that never questioned love, the struggles, the mischievousness, the cuddles and tears .. the surprise little gifts they bring you x
Wow, am so chuffed that the give-away at http://scotland4thesenses.blogspot.com/ went so well. Congratulations to the lucky winners, and thank you to everyone who stopped by my blog and left me such lovely comments. I appreciated them all.
Hey everyone, I'm assisting with a little mother's day giveaway via my very good friend at scotland4thesenses.blogspot.com . Wonderful pictures, beautifully written and all about Scotland. All you have to do is leave your answer to the question that has been set. Good Luck x
This has been the biggest whirlwind week I've had for ages, with crafting, children, and classes - it's gone by in a flash. We are having some much needed family time next week, so will catch up with you all then. Hopefully I'll have worked out how to put the tutorials onto here ... I'm being lazy and trying to avoid re-typing and inserting tons of photos ... but I will if I have to x
