This week has been mad!
With being away Monday to Wednesday and then Minx's Birthday on Thursday the time has whizzed by, no creating has been done and blogging has lapsed.
I suppose something has to give but I'd rather it was housework, which for some reason has taken a front seat for a change! A clear up has been underway, brought on by feelings of panic (as my new job starts very soon) and hormones!!!
Here are some Birthday photos to cheer us up:
Minx had a lovely day. She loved reading all your lovely Birthday wishes - thank you :)
We had a day out with friends that involved an indoor play centre and as much as we could eat at Pizza Hut!
Minx had a shiny new bike for her birthday - she's a great little cyclist :)
Her Grandad bought her a huge art set with more pens and pencils than we know what to do with!!!
She also had one of Gina's beautiful Sock Monster creations that I bought from her lovely etsy shop. This is Ruby monster - with her fab red hair!! Ruby has gone everywhere with Minx and has usurped one of her favourite cuddlies at bed time :)
The beautiful bag next to Ruby is a very lovely and very unexpected present off Gina - using one of Minx's drawings :)
Thank you sooooo much Gina - Minx was so excited about her present and she recognised her crazy chicken straight away!!
Her bag has been used for a shopping trip already as Minx had some birthday money burning a hole in her pocket! She was very sensible and bought herself a big red beanbag to sit on (see picture top right - Minx on beanbag sucking thumb) and a lilac fluffy heart-shaped cushion!
She even had some dosh left to choose clothes that she wanted (ie. no input from me!!) - we came away with a High School Musical t-shirt and leggings - at least it wasn't covered in sequins which is what she usually goes for.....
Hopefully I'll be back very soon with some craftiness as I have a birthday present to make for a 3 year old boy and a mini quilt for my lovely swap partner.
