Honestly there has not been much on the creative front around here. I've found another use for the puzzle bags, I'm just re-badging them, now they are called "sanity craft bags". During the evening (i.e. relative calm) I can make them up with a craft activity for the kids so when we are all going stir-crazy (or just plain crazy) I can quickly grab one and get them going without having to:
1. Think of an activity (impossible in the heat of THE MOMENT)
2. Find everything we need
This one is ready to go for this afternoons crafting.....threading (apologies for the very busy table cloth)
I'm in count down mode for the end of this winter. I usually like a lot of the things winter brings; snow, woolly jumpers, preserved fruits, hearty soups, winter veggies and of course winter babies. I've enjoyed reading Michelle's 'good things about winter' but really now I'm over it. This winter I've seen too much RAIN. I know we needed it blah, blah, blah, but now I need some sun. Some sun to dry out the muddles (as Max calls them) .
There are only so many times you want to pile 3 kids into the car to go somewhere warm & dry to wear them out! I want to be able to send them out into the yard to play again, I also want to get the cubbyhouse parked in our driveway into the back yard without getting bogged!
On the up side there has been much scone making and jam eating. This was our last jar of jam made from our plums (we still have lots of jam made from other folks fruit).
However the promise of spring and more plums is in the air....
More spacers over here.
