after last week's cake stresses I have decided that this is a new week, and that I'm going to start looking forward to the trip to Scotland, and the wedding. positive thinking!
first step to recovery - retail therapy!
first on the list, a jumper for E, how hard can it be to find a smart jumper for a 7 year old boy - the answer is very, the fashion this year seems to be for stripes, lovely but not what we wanted. This cosy cuddly number was the best we found, and he likes it, which is a good start!
next, some new trainers for me, as mine are very old and although not for doing anymore serious exercise than walking to school I figured everyone else was getting something new so..... and they were in the sale...
a sparkly headband for Miss K to go in whatever hair style she chooses,
and then what follows is what happens when you are feeling distracted and thus allow the family to put whatever they want in the basket at the shops, because they have told you it's for the car on the way to Scotland
a ridiculous assortment of sweets
very sticky cakes
crumbly chocolaty biscuits
at least this is a bit better
something for me
and I hope J is planning to drink these when we get there, and not as part of the picnic..........
some when I hope there will be some more sewing on this blog, I decorated 48 beautiful napkins for the wedding, and gave them to the bride without photographing them. There are two baby quilts in the making for a friend, so I shall definitely photograph them!
