Doesn't time fly, I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last post! It has been rather hectic here though, my 16 yr old got a flu type virus last week, which wiped her out but she still insisted on going to school for most of the week. She's a very dedicated drama student and no matter what the show must go on, she's at school today doing auditions for the sixth form play even though it's half term! Now my 3 yr old has the same virus but seems to be getting livelier today, I'm hoping she will be better tomorrow as we're hoping to go to the Eden project for the Halloween celebrations.
I've started baking a lot more now that the weather has changed, a bit of comfort food.
I've also booked a stall at a new local produce market, the first one is on the 21st November then it will be held every month. It's a very small market only 8 stalls so I was very lucky to get in there quickly and get a place. So I've had to cut right back on my computer usage and sew, sew, sew! This little lot is 116 w.i.p.'s can you believe!
On top of all that I've been asked to be a school LEA governor again, my last governing body term lasted for 11 years, ending about 4 years ago. I was also working at the school then so it took up a lot of my time but I think I'll probably say yes as it'll be good to get back in the know especially as my 3 yr old will start school next September.
Now onto my recent haul of goodies.
2 boxes of 12 gorgeous Christmas baubles, the lady said she bought them 2nd hand 43 years ago and she sold them to me for 50p a box:)
A gorgeous Johnson Bros. Rosedawn coffee pot.
the same can be said for the jugs.
A wooden box of 20 picture bricks depicting scenes from snow white, apparently this is over 40 years old, it looks like it was hardly played with.
And finally a little bit of Fisher Price.
I'll leave you with this photo I took of my shoo fly plant's seed pod, which I think is beautiful.
