I figured that there is always tomorrow, so lets just go out and have a nice day instead.
The kids were both feeling a bit under the weather today, so they requested a day with Nanny and Grampy instead of coming out with us.
We dropped them off late morning and P and I decided to pop to Cosco for a bit of a stock up of essentials (wine and the likes!!) I finally bought myself an SLR camera, I having been saving up for one for a while and got a Nikon D3000 for a good price in Cosco.
We then drove to Henley and had a nice lunch in Cafe Rouge, no kids what a treat. I dragged P into a vintage shop and bought some lovely ribbon wrapped around an old bobbin. Not sure what I am going to do with them but they are nice to look at whilst I make my mind up.
Bought a very sweet little hand made mug with a blue tit on - I will tell you all about my blue tit obsession one day. This shop was full of Cath Kidston and general loveliness. I could have browsed all day.
Tried out my new camera back at Nanny & Grampy's house and took this picture of little Bong aka Alex.
He then took this picture of his spiders that he had made last week at his art club, hope you like it. They used potatoes to print the spiders.
I have spent some time ordering some more of these beauties to give to my Mother in law's for her cake stand. They are from Ebay made by a lovely lady called Vicky.
We decided that they look fairly simple to make and will have a go ourselves when we get a bit of time.
Made some lovely sea base for tea, couldn't convince Bing or Bong to have any they both wanted spaghetti hoops on toast!!
Finished off with a choice of three of these each.
Little Bong fantasises about the sweetie jar, he is always telling me which three he will pick or what treats he will restock it with, the boy is obsessed.
Not much crafting done this week, have managed to do a bit of my union jack cross stitch cushion but not much else. I am hoping this week is a bit more creative.
Very excited also as I have managed to persuade my mother in law to come with me and Daisy (Big Bing) to the Country living show in London at the end of March. One look at the leaflet and she was persuaded. Can't wait, I'm sure I won't be coming back empty handed.
We have a busy day tomorrow, Daisy has a project to do for Monday, there is nothing like leaving it all to the last minute is there! Family around for tea and all the jobs that I haven't done today need doing too. I always thought Sunday was supposed to be a day of rest - fat chance in this house. Enjoy whatever you do at the weekend. x
PS Daisy has been moaning that she wants her picture in my blog, so here she is Big Bing in all her loveliness, taken last summer.
