Hello everyone hope we're all having a good half term, I must say the weather has been lovely which always helps.
We're having a great week, starting Saturday with Greenday at the O2 who were absolutely fantastic they certainly know how to put on a show and they were on stage for nearly 3 hours WOW!!! I'm just a rock chick at heart (as long as it's a pink flowery heart).
Sunday was just a relaxing day, no football matches, no in-laws to visit just a day to do nothing bliss.
So half term kicks off properly on Monday and now my youngest boys are nearly 14 I haven't got the stresses of finding something for them to do everyday I'm just the open purse and the occasional driver which is fine by me. I think I've done my time with bowling/swimming/swings/zoo etc.
That brings me to today which was spent mostly sat in the car in Cobham watching the boys skateboarding, I did venture out of the car and I'm so glad I did, Cobham has some very nice little shops, some ridiculously overpriced, well it is footballers wives territory.
Two little shops were full of oo-la-la gorgeousness, I was very restrained but I did buy a few little treats for being such a good mummy!
Isn't this tin lovely.
I thought this wrapping paper would make a good picture mount around my union jack felt heart I'm halfway through making.
This is also wrapping paper I was looking at a print of the UK not so long ago but it was £65 this one was £1.50 what a bargain, just got to find a frame for it and we'll be away.
Couldn't resist this notebook and Christmas cards, I found a pattern for a quilt with Russian dolls on which I think I'll have to have a go at, because it was lovely.
Now I was in two minds about the bunting I've made lots of bunting over the years and it is really easy, but I wanted this for the bathroom and I thought for the sake of £5.99 I couldn't be bothered to sort the fabric out if it's that cheap to buy, lazy I know.
I did go into a couple of charity shops nothing special but I did find these 2 books.
Needlework a school text book from 1959.
