Well, we got there - even though it was touch and go at times Lucy and I have managed to complete this weeks Loo-sley Crafting challenge to make a messenger bag each. I finished mine when I got home last night after a big citywide school governors' meeting.
I had wanted to go home and do nothing. However, DH informed me that a very excitable woman had phoned up to say she'd finished her bag ALREADY!!!
Of course, I couldn't let that pass could I?
Minx spotted my bag first thing this morning and said something along these lines:
' I like the new bag you made Mummy! Who is it for? But you're always making yourself bags. You never make me anything!'
Ahem, I calmly explained (as calmly as one can when this is how you are woken at 6.30am!!) that I do, in fact, make her lots of things like an owl, a monkee made of knit, a sock monkey, a Rosy doll, lots of bags.......you get the picture?
Kids are so great aren't they?
I've just been over to Lucy's blog and she has posted a very daunting 'to do' list.
Maybe I should do the same.
Then again, I'm actually feeling as if I may be coming down with Minx's lurg so here's my list........with pictures:
Do some more of this:
Minx has her class assembly this afternoon and I told her I wasn't feeling too good.
'That's ok Mummy. You can bring a sick bowl with you, my teacher won't mind!'
That child slays me every time :)
