Make me smile muffins!

Five things for today:

  1. Feedback. I went for a Saturday job at local sewing shop and had an interview yesterday. Unfortunately I didn’t get offered the position but had some good feedback and the lovely lady from the shop sounded genuinely sorry! I’m a bit gutted as would of been perfect but wasn’t meant to be πŸ™‚

  2. Coffee and chats. A friend I used to work with popped over today, she came a few weeks ago when kids were off school but today we could actually hear each other!
  3. Make me smile muffins. I got a text from Jodi this afternoon asking if I was in, I was, and she turned up 15 minutes later with a tub containing six delicious muffins to cheer me up! Love! I’ve eaten two already – well there were two flavours, I had to try one of each!

    I didn’t tell many people about going for the sewing shop job but those I did tell have said some lovely things too πŸ™‚ Thank you all xx

  4. Friends. Millie had a friend over to play after school today, they had a lovely time painting pictures, Xander joined in too. Then they sat and ate tea and had ice creams.. happy children!
  5. Early night. Webby is away tonight so am going to try and get some sleep! Violet cutting another tooth I think so didn’t sleep so well last night! Look at her toothy grin!


Daisy chains and love.

Five positive things for today..

  1. Cups of tea.. this morning at a friends house! Lovely catch ups with two of my friends who have children at same school as my two, instead of taking cakes or biscuits I took a couple of bunches of tulips πŸ™‚ Love a good old chinwag! Must of tired Violet out!Sleepy V
  2. When I got home there was a little card pushed though the door. It’s nice to know someone is thinking of you!IMG_7762
  3. Soup. Used up a load of vegetables I had in the fridge to make a soup! Less waste is always good!
  4. Daisy chain. As I was standing at school waiting for Millie to come out one of Millie’s friends handed me a daisy chain that she told me she and Millie had made for me, so sweet!Daisy chain love.
  5. Daddy’s coming home! Millie and Xander are very excited that Daddy is back home today (as am I!) after a couple of nights away. It’s wonderful to see how they love him so πŸ™‚

Here’s the bit of sewing from yesterday’s post as promised!

A colourful day!


Five positive things from today:

  1. Cheering up a friend.. with a handmade gift. This is my favourite positive from today πŸ™‚ 
  2. Colourful. Today has looked so colourful! It seems spring has sprung. I noticed a few blossom trees, lots of yellows and pinks popping up from luscious green grass! Wore a yellow top today and got a couple of people comment on how lovely it was to see some bright colour! Spotted this feather flitting around in the breeze this morning, not colourful but had a pretty pattern.feather
  3. Violet. Today and the last couple of days her little character is really starting to show! She can be very serious when inspecting new faces, but with those she’s familiar with she’s all smiles and toothy grins. She laughs at a special few people just because she can and is starting to laugh when you do! She’s getting her cheeky grin perfected pretty quick too! She’s a real pleasure πŸ™‚
  4. Goodnight phone call. My husband has just called to say goodnight, he was away last night and tonight with work, boo hoo, but back tomorrow πŸ™‚ He always calls me though, love to hear his voice on the phone! πŸ™‚
  5. Another project done. Finally got round to sorting Violet’s cot bumper – it didn’t have enough ties on it so it was flapping around and looked a mess, so today I used some of the left over fabric from my skirt, cut up some strips and sewed them on, along with three hearts to make it a bit more interesting as it was just plain off white. Looks much better but Violet is asleep now so will take a couple of photos tomorrow!

Ooooh! Look what the postie bought me!

  1. …Fabric! For skirt number two! I love it! Can’t wait to get started on it though not sure if I’ll get chance this side of Easter but we’ll see!fabricIsn’t it gorgeous?! Thank you to Stitch FabricsΒ for their super quick delivery!
  2. Another delivery! A friend popped in unexpectedly this morning with a box of six homemade carrot muffins with ‘Happy Easter’ written on top, such a lovely thing she is! And they’re delicious!Β Yum
    Don't think they'll last long!

  3. Baby led weaning. We’re doing baby led weaning with our third child, Violet. It’s the first time we’ve done it but it seems to be going very well! Does seem to make a lot of sense to wait until they can actually put things in their mouths themselves! Today we tried a new food – toast pizzas – and they went down a treat!
  4. Mum & Dad’s for tea! My brother and his family went too so that meant cuddles with a newborn and watching my five year old son and my nearly four year old niece run around like loons! Scrummy dinner, thanks Mum!
  5. Ten years! Last but not least, my husband and I have been together for ten years today! I think thats pretty amazing πŸ™‚ We met in a pub where I was working as a barmaid and he’d come to show his friends his beloved VW Beetle, that’s my first memory of him! But it was another four months before we got it together, and now here we are, three children, a house and few cars later! We’re very lucky, love you Mr. xx
