It’s Definitely Spring 

The Letter I for a title today, it’s a bit of a cheat word for this weeks abc123challenge round-up.  We’re not as organised this week either. My best friend came to visit us on Friday so I’ve not had the usual time to write.  I’m sat in a cafe with …

Rainbow Pencil Case

Rainbow Pencil Case Alison Glass fabric is so colourful, it deserves to make a rainbow.  I bought a fat eighth bundle of her Sun prints collection not so long ago so that I could have a play and make a rainbow.  I like pouches and cases so I decided to …

I is for Ice Play

The Patchwork Cat

One of my bucket list items this year was to make keepsake quilts for my kids out of their baby grows.  Getting totally sidetracked from this though I have ended up making a cuddly patchwork cat toy from the Robots tiny clothes. While I was making it I got very …

H is for Home Play Day

Sometimes you just get stuck at home on a home play day.  We’re not very good at being in all day.  If it’s the weekend then it’s even worse. Dave is hopeless at staying in and we’re always on the go at the weekend because of it. There are times …

G is For Growing Cress

Before I had kids I used to allotment and volunteer in GirlGuiding.  I always used to want to share my love of the outdoors with my Brownies and Guides and would often find ways to get them growing things.  Most often growing cress! Unfortunately due to moving and the demands …

Fun and Fast #ABC123Challenge

It’s Friday when I normally try write-up my round-ups. The perfect day for a letter F.  As usual the week has flown by faster than ever. We’ve had plenty of fun but I clicked my neck one morning half way through the week so I’ve had a not so pleasant …

Baby Toy Carrier

F is for Foam Shapes

This post is not for the faint hearted! It’s not even really the best how to post.  Pinterest perfect it is not.  It’s an experience, one that makes me think why do I even bother.  Foam shapes, no, no, no. This reminds me a bit of the time I tried …

E is for Emergency Vehicles 

The Robot absolutely loves vehicles. All of them, cars, trains, bin lorries, post vans, you name them he loves them! There is one thing though that gets him every time. Emergency vehicles.  They’re the best.  I don’t think he really understands the severity of them yet, that they’re normally heading …

Send A Little Love Swap

Send a little love. I know Valentine’s Day has been and gone but if you can’t talk about love everyday then something has gone horribly wrong!   The act of loving someone or something is ever-present in all our lives hopefully.  I have a lot of love to give in …

D is for Dancing

There are lots of reasons why I love dancing and non of them are to do with actually knowing how to dance.  I possibly went to one or two dance lessons as a kid because my friend did but I soon hot footed it out the door when I could. …
