Wowee, it's been almost a year since I last blogged. No points for consistency there then, but now that the schools are back it feels like a fresh start here and I can regain my 'me time' and get back to spending some quality time in my lovely shed. Although I haven't been sharing stuff here, rest assured I have been a busy bee sewing and crocheting (sp?) and generally keeping the craft vibe going around here.
Last week my son decided he wanted to spend some of his birthday money so we bimbled up to the high street ready to invest in some more quality plastic or tiny figures or yet more lego, aaaghhh! Anyhoo, I digress, halfway up, I asked him if he had his money and he said yes, it's right here in my pock…. ahem, no it's no longer in your pocket, so we had to retrace our steps and unfortunately didn't find the lost tenner and didn't have to further add to the clutter (see, every cloud has a silver lining!). However, on the way home for the 2nd time, I spotted a rolled up bit of paper next to the bin and it was only his birthday money, cunningly camouflaged next to the other debris. Hoorah! After a chat about the value of money we decided to make a safer option for my son to keep his money, that is also very cool looking. I found this great tutorial here which is big enough to hold his pocket money and will be visible and safe on his write. It's basically a big lined pocket with velcro closure. Simples! I used this cute vintage car fabric that I had lying around waiting to be put to good use. Hoorah! Mum and son both happy, apart from the inevitable return visit to the toy shop and the house closing in on us a tad more each day...
