Bullet Train – Happy Days

Woah one minute I was writing about heading to Blackpool Zoo the next it was a whole week later and time to start my round up again. Seriously fast, I don’t think I’ve had a week go so fast in such a long time.  Total Bullet Train moment. School term …

The Festival of Quilts 2018

It’s been a couple of weeks since I visited The Festival of Quilts at the Birmingham NEC. Holidays and School Holidays have got in my way of being able to sit back and reflect on my first experience at this world-famous Quilt show. The week before attending I took a …

Fun With Cups

Searching back through my photos stored in my emails I came across loads of pictures of the Robot having fun with cups. As I like to share activities with you to do with your kids I thought now would be the best time to show you this before I forget …

100 Hexies Mythical Creatures Days 15-21

Mythical Creatures I’ve always been a bit fascinated by Myths and legends but when the topic of Mythical Creatures came up and then having to match these to little fabric hexies I stumbled!  I scoured my little fabric collection for tiny creatures of Mythical understanding and this is what I …

Zooming sort of! #abc123challenge

This weeks has been a bit of a blur. Week 2 of the holidays are done!  I surprise myself by saying it’s been a blur.  Every blooming week is a bit of a blur at the moment.  Being a little bit or a lot tired all the time, constantly on …

Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom!

Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom! Lets just have some fun. One of the Robots favourite books is Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. One of the witches spells is “Iggety, Ziggety, Zaggety, Zoom” and I thought this would be fun way to end this alphabet challenge. A witch and magic themed …

The Letter Z #ABC123Challenge

The Letter Z It is the final week of the #abc123challenge.  If you made it to the end I salute you.  There has been plenty of things I have dropped and left behind half way or near the end.  Life does that.  That’s ok.  I am just about managing my …

Yes I Will Play Trains With You #abc123challenge

Week one of the school holidays done, five more to go. The words “Mummy, will you play trains with me?” Are very much engrained into my head leading me to much dread. They don’t really prepare you for the summer holidays with two little kids. They rip away your play …

The Festival of Quilts – A First Timer Prepares

In a couple of weeks time I’m going to The Festival of Quilts at the Birmingham NEC. It’s my first time going and I know I’m going to be under prepared and probably blown away by its epic proportions. I’m told it’s the largest patchwork and quilt show in Europe …

Yoghurt Pot Yachts

It’s not often I spring the craft supplies out on the Robot. As much as I love crafting and making things myself I often cringe at his ability to just make a mess rather than create something, even a bit like something. I know that’s not the point of being …

The Letter Y #ABC123Challenge

The Letter Y I think it’s safe to say I have become the worlds worst hostess of organising and running a challenge.  I am just about managing my own posts that I said I would be doing as part of the challenge.  Writing a Play post and a Round Up …
