Lazing on a sunny afternoon!

Having been woken at about 3am by one poorly twin, I thought we were going to be in for a miserable Inset day; however the power of Calpol was enough to keep everyone relatively happy.

My car got a clean, before the immanent hose-pipe ban, two loads of washing made it onto the line for the first time this year and we made the quick trip to the Post Office before eating lunch in the garden.

Poorly one has done a lot of sleeping, the others have flitted between Lego and watching Star Wars, and I even managed 40 winks in the sun!

And so my sewing has amounted to zilch, which I will rectify this evening, but only after I have booked some Airport parking and travel insurance for OUR HOLIDAY!!!

Yep, we have just booked our summer holiday and I am so excited.  I now have 5 months to get myself some half-decent swimwear and a half-decent body to go in it!

And because I want to erase that gruesome thought from your minds, here's another pretty leaf...


...told you they were addictive!

  6. Do you really have to book the parking this far in advance? I guess that is the big city. Sounds like a lovely day.

  9. Where are you going? Where are you going? This is so exciting!

    Your leaves are just lovely. I'm really enjoying your variations.

    What are you doing with your photos? They're looking super w/o a background. Would you think of posting a tute?

  14. Glad poorly twin got some probably well needed rest, and that the other two gave you a chance for some too!!

  15. Hope your little one gets better soon - we have one today too! Those leaves are fab - I'd love to know how you did it :o)

  16. Sounds like you had a great day (well apart from the sick twinnie). Love those keyrings!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Those key rings would be a hot item if they were ever to appear for sale. They are very special and out of the ordinary!! I am curious about where you are going, too?

  18. These are so cute, Hads. I really like the leaves!

  19. Nothing better than sneaking 40 winks,hmm actually a summer holiday somewhere exotic is much better! Hope the poorly twin is not so poorly now.
    Love your leaves.

  20. Those leaves are so pretty and the way you photographed them is good too.
    As far as a beach bod goes, we should say before we can read any blogs or take one stitch we must exercise for 30 minutes. If you take the challenge, I will too. I only have 3 months to get ready for vacation, and 15 lbs to lose!

  21. Lucky you! I am struggling with the summer plans and rearranging every day again. I would love to just book a flight in the sun but ....

    The leave looks great! I love the fresh color

  22. Hope kiddies are better. A lovely day in the sun - sounds great. xx

  23. cute leaves! what a cool idea. it is great to get some washing out isn't it? Although I have no chance of that due to buckets of rain :( hope little one feels better soon x

    ReplyDelete
  24. Phew, glad the Calpol came to the rescue! 40 winks in the sun though? It's persisting down here! Sounds like you're getting in plenty of practice in advance for your hols though ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  25. How would we survive without Calpol?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ok I just ordered the pattern! Thx for the idea!
