Ooooo its busy busy here in the Kirby Household :) I'm pooped but its been fun. We've had a family week at School for the Angels, several coffee/cake/knit and natter mornings, a fantastic Sports day, and a food cringe-worthy 'join us for a school dinner' day (they're still as bad as I remember them..haha) It was lovely seeing my Angels in their school environment and what they get up to (I did a lot of spying thru' classroom windows so as not to disturb them) We had lovely weather for the Sports day and it was perfectly organised with lots of games and races ... actually the only race was the Teachers versus Parents running relay :) The children's sports were along the lines of bean bag tossing and fishing for plastic ducks ... great fun. I'm sure I could hear my Angels squealing with excitement above everyone else :))
Hubby is off work this week, so that he could join in the fun too, but also so that he and Jacob could go on an adventure of their own. They randomly decided to go down to Wimbledon to watch the Tennis, I say randomly because every year they talk and talk about going down, the random part comes into being more as in spontaneously getting up very early one morning and driving down to London (not a short journey from the North West!) to stand/sleep in line for tickets!! ... don't ask me, I don't know, I just heard it involved a lot of queueing and strategically placed tents! But they were very lucky and got centre court tickets and watched several matches, including Roger Federer's knock-out. They were very pleased with themselves :) We have spent a lot of time re-watching the matches today to try and spot them in the spectators ...lol! All the girls were left at home and we enjoyed some girly films and lots of chocolate and ice-cream. And if I'd have been able to I would have enjoyed some sneaky Internet shopping too but frustratingly our Internet connection has been on and off for weeks now ... not sure if cables are been laid or updated or something but its having a serious impact on my visits from Mr Postman ... I haven't seen him aaaall week :)
I did receive a lovely package a little while ago ...
I had a quick trip in between fun and games at School to the Old Cotton Mill I love that houses vintage /second-hand goodies .. I came home with a few treats ;)
I've also been productive with my sewing, still no woolie loving but I've decided to stop pressurising myself and just enjoy what I'm enjoying at present, which is a renewed excitement and pleasure in cross stitch :)
I also managed to sew this small design... I like small ..hehehe.. by Beehive Needleworks called 'Sunflowers and Acorns'
Well its that time of an evening where I have to get my two not-so-little Angels in the bath and ready for bedtime. We've been having lots of fun and games just lately, and not necessarily the kind of fun and games a Mummy would like to be having at bath/bedtime... like flooding the bathroom, admittedly not with water but let me tell you soapy bubbles are just as hard to mop up as inches of water! Then we have the 'Ostrich legs' that wedge us, or rather wedge a certain a long legged Angel into the bath! Apparently its very funny watching Mummy slip and slide all over the place trying to bend stiff and unbendable legs. And don't even get me wittering on about the joys of baby talc! I'm thinking of changing the bedroom carpet to white...its virtually that colour anyway once the baby talc is squeezed :) Oh the joys ... it is joyful really :) I just like to pretend I'm moany and woeful ..hahaha I best go, the girls have toddled off up stairs on their own ...they know the routine :)
Happy Bath time :))
