See, I can't do sitting still relaxing.
It's not because I'm some superslim whirlwind of an efficient woman.
It's because I am my Mother's daughter and my Aunties' niece!!
As a family failing I suppose it could be worse.
There are times, however, when I miss 'the moment' and instead of snuggling up on the sofa with Minx/Sausage/Moog I'm finding reasons to be 'Full of Busy' as Patti so beautifully puts it.
Maybe I need to learn to chill..... and while I'm doing it I could do a bit of sewing/knitting/crochet/reading!!
Minx and I were very touched by all your good wishes yesterday.
I rarely take the children to the doctor's with coughs and colds because:
- I'll get told 'it's a cough/cold'
- I'm Mrs Tooscaredtowastebusypeople'stime
- I'm a neglectful parent
Ears are different. Minx had a series of ear infections as a baby and I don't like to risk it with ears.
So we went to the doctor's last night and Minxie is actually properly poorly. She has an ear infection in her right ear and is now on gorgeous radioactiveyellow antibiotic medicine. No drinking wine for her then!
She spent today at home and has missed out on the last day of term and parties and fun.
We did pop into school this morning with the teacher's present however - a Dammit Doll and the embroidered coaster. Her teacher rushed up from the classroom to thank us and was really excited to have a Dammit Doll of her very own as she was coveting the one we gave to Minx's Year 1 teacher. She was so excited about the doll that she hadn't noticed the coaster - much to Minx's disgust.
Her teacher also gave us Minx's Christmas cards from her classmates. This is our favourite:
Is it me or is puss not entirely happy with the whole 'Cat as Rudolph' thing?
We had to pop to the shops again. Here is today's 'baked' offering:
Apart from fixing some ripped seams on school trousers and crocheting another four stripes on Monster's blanket it has been a day devoid of craft.
I did squeeze in a bit of lurking ;)
How about these labels for this year's Christmas gifts? Too late for ours as we, in true superhuman fashion, wrapped everything last night! I've saved a copy for next year - if I remember in 12 months time!!
Mrs Locket has posted a whole lot of dolly goodness for us to drool over!
Then there's Julie who's been playing with her embellisher and making me very envious as all I want to do is play too!
I'm also going to have to go back to Gina's for another good look!
As I'm becoming a bit heavy on the exclamation marks I feel it may be time for me to MOVE AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER and maybe drink a little of this:
Cheers you lovely bloggers xxxxx
