Clothkits pinny bundleGardening addict by day, net surfing addict by night.  So time to break some habits and start making things instead of just reading about them.  A gorgeous clothkits parcel arrived this week.  A wonderful present of a new sewing machine arrived today (thanks mum).  And hopefully the completed pinny will arrive in time for the birthday girl on Tuesday.

    I started to learn how to knit early this year, but it has been on hold since the veg started growing. I would love to take up some sewing too, hopefully will. Must put time aside, but sometimes its not so easy.

      I find knitting and summer completely incompatible so won’t be dusting my needles off until at least November!

Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)
#motherhood #70thbirthdaygift Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!

#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
