Another week were I am running behind with this post! I had a busy week but again a lot of it won’t be blogged as it isn’t something I want recorded online
Monday A day in work and Buster was in for 2 hours in Nursery, all went well and he seems to be enjoying himself
Tuesday work again and more crafting and testing of my monkeys for CE compliance
Wednesday K at swimming lessons and MrR brought them to the park first so two exhausted children tonight
Thursday we had a sleep over in my mums and Buster went into mum in the night so I got a whole bed to myself!
Friday went to mums after work and MrR did some work on removing a radiator etc in order for mum to get work done the next day. I pulled out of the job that would have meant relocating as it was not working for us.
Saturday MrR brought K to Irish Dancing lessons and then brought Buster to his Football lessons. I stayed home and sewed! Then had a visit from A and we had a catch up although with K and MrR about we kept being interrupted K and Buster slept over in mums and MrR and I went out to the cinema to see Taken2 and then out to Dominos for pizza!
Sunday I got a sleep in and then got up and did more crafting before we went round in the afternoon and collected my two from mums and got some Sunday dinner!
next week will be a busier week with many more on the horizon
I have spent the last few weeks trying to set up some stock for a new venture that I hope to do in the evenings/spare time!!
I have rediscovered my love of sewing – I did it for A-level but haven’t really done much in the last few years. At the minute I have been concentrating on making sock monkeys and cloth dolls using patterns bought from dolls and daydreams.
I am loving making the dolls and am just about stopping myself from buying numerous patterns from the website until I figure what I can do with all the dolls I make.
I am awaiting details from my local council about trading requirements etc to see if I could sell the dolls and monkeys and will have to slow down in my production in case they say no- otherwise they will be filling up every room!
