And I would like to add... yes, it is STILL raining! 



We've run out of oil (nobody to blame but ourselves, we somehow manage to do it annually ) and so, for the last few days we've had no heating and the house is beyond flipping freezing! 
So today, I am giving a big shout out to my trusty fan heater.... this is its moment. It sticks with me through thick and thin keeping my legs warm as I work. It's doing overtime at the moment. Humble fan heater, I salute you. 
(I would like to add, should the oil delivery men be reading this blog on their lunch break, please hurry up.)

Sorry, this is a bit of a mushy post but sometimes you want to take the little things your kids say and bottle them up forever. 
My boy and I were discussing having lots of money one day and what we would spend it on. (we play this a lot, dream, dream, dream) and he said "Mum, do you know what I'd buy you? I'd get you a beautiful crown and a kissing machine so we could programme our kisses in and have them all day long wherever we are." 
Cry? I did a little. Love you my boy xxxxx

It's my notsolittleanymore girl's birthday this week and, aside from roller skating, Bunnies are 
her number one thing. And so, just for her, here are some of the little fluffy things. 
Love you Min Bins, now go and clean your rabbits out!! 


Myself and the other dotty wren girls have a lovely write-up today over on Make it in Design. 
If you're in a bit of a creative rut, a good e-course might be just the right investment you need to give you a bit of a wake and shake up, creatively and mentally. It definitely worked for me!

Man, the weather around the world is crazy at the moment! There's a village near us that's been completely cut off by water from all the rain we've been having. 
You can now only reach it by canoe or massive tractor. Apparently they had to rescue the cows by boat... or was it an ark?
Hoping you stay dry and warm wherever you are. x

Happy New Year Everyone!!! A bit belated but I needed a complete break over the Christmas hols and so that's what I did... I forced myself not to go near my computer too much... it was nice! But now it's back to work with a massive bump...Ouch!
Hope you all had wonderful Christmasses....ours was one of those ones full of illnesses... we all dropped like flies, we watched a whole year's quota of movies in a week but got better for seeing the New Year in so all was good. 
Now I've got to make a plan, a great huge major time plan to schedule everything in between now and Surtex in May. I'm hoping the break has revived my creativity and the ideas will fly! 
And if I write it on this blog, it will definitely come true! Ready, steady......go!
