Hobbycraft Christmas Craft Review

With Halloween over everything is now focused on Christmas. Well it started to creep into shops and tv adverts before Halloween!! I’ve always been very arty and P1 is certainly following in my footsteps. I used to go to Hobbycraft with my Mum as a child. Even if we never bought anything it was always an exciting trip. Seeing all …

“P2 has created her first piece of artwork”

At 40 weeks and 2 days old P2 has created her first piece of artwork. We went to a Messy Play group for 0-2yrs. It wasn’t overly “messy” focused but I braved the paint. The black paint. She loved it, wiggling her fingers all in the paint then bashing the paper. She had no idea what she was doing or …

“She didn’t really seem excited about seeing me”

I can’t believe that it’s November already. Well it’s actually now the 2nd, why am I not asleep yet? I travelled back to Essex this afternoon to pick P1 up from my Mums. I left at 3:30 expecting to miss rush hour on the way there, this did not happen, the traffic was horrendous!!! However, the takeaway pizza soon took …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 9 Months

To my Princess 1, Unfortunately this past month has been a horrible one for the whole family. In your first day of school, 3rd September 2013, you were sent home early because you fell and you clamped down on your tongue cussing quite a bit of damage. We took you to A&E. This was also the day that Great-Nanny went …

Makeup On Children

I caught P1 using a pen to draw on her eyelids and a highlighter over her face. Quite tasteful colours actually. She told me it was her makeup. She must watch me putting my makeup on all the time and it never occurred to me that she would want to do the same. But of course she would, she’s a …

Challenge Day#10

Absolutely fantastic day… Hadn’t raised my voice at all right up until 7pm when I noticed some lovely art all up my mothers lounge wall… Her cream wallpaper. Naughty step was done. And P1 was made to clean the drawings off by herself. Which she did with a massive grin on her face!!!!!! Why oh why can’t she just behave! …

Tap

I had my nails done… For the first time in years!!! My paid job, when I’m not on maternity leave or being a mum, is quite hard on your hands. I’d paint my nails and they’d be chipped the next day… Hence why I always changed my nail colour pretty much daily. Well that all stopped when I became a …

Scissor Addiction

The title of this makes it sound like a really bad post but it’s not! Whilst at my Grandad’s P1 has been learning how to cut things out with scissors. I can’t believe how grown up she is getting.     She’s always asking to use the scissors now, part of me gets all nervous about her chopping her fingers …

Friday’s Child Is Full Of Art

I had a good night sleep again with P2, unlike the night before. She had her last feed and was down in her Moses basket at 10:30. Didn’t wake until 3:30 and then had her feed and was back in her Moses by 3:40. Where she stayed asleep until 6:40. Excellent. We then had a knock on the door and …

To My Princesses – Letter 3

To my Princesses, This week feels like it has been really busy but in reality, looking back I don’t think it has been that busy. I have made a schedule for our home, a cleaning schedule so that has pretty much taken over my days now which is great really. I’m finally getting into a routine so we can all …

New Hair

I made it. And I surprisingly didn’t feel that emotional whilst I was gone. My boobs clearly missed P2 as I felt them filling up half way through my hair being coloured. Apart from that it was quite nice to not have to lug a carseat around or worry that P1 is walking too close to the road etc. Do …

You Either Love It Or You Hate It

I ventured into Hobbycraft today to grab some bits to start off the girls Arts & Crafts box. What an expensive shop! P1 walked in and the first thing she said was “Wow this is amazing!” And that’s the exact same reaction that I had when I used to go with my Mum and spend many hours going down every …

Messy Time

I read a post over at Richmond Mummy and it really made me chuckle. Yesterday, whilst she was clearing up probably a lot of mess because let’s face it… Kids of all ages have to make mess when faced with art supplies – I was at our local ceramic painting studio run by family not worrying about the mess P1 …

40 Acts – Day 27 – Make Something

Get creative and have a go at making personalised cards. If you’re even more creatively gifted, why not paint, cook or knit something as a special gift for someone? I’m going to bake flapjacks tomorrow evening. I feel in the mood for flapjacks and because I’m so kind I’ll share with my family.
