Never too old for Play Doh

We have had a chilled out weekend. We did eat sweets, chocolate and watch a DVD (actually I slept through it, it is the standing joke in our house).  I am often asked 'What DVD do  you want to fall to sleep to mum'.  Oh it was a lovely sleep, about an hour and a half sprawled on the settee with my blanket and pooch.  Very cosy.  The girls have kept themselves amused.  I have made a new top and been to the car boot. I had the pattern and fabric already all I need was a bit of time and a little sewing mojo.  It all came together well and I am really pleased with the result.  It fits too which is a bonus.  I made a mock up of this top before and I couldn't even get it on so it's pleasing that I made it and it fits.  I have lost a stone  at fat club and am feeling much better.

I got the fabric from Fabrics

 Galore at the NEC in March I love that stall and wish I could visit their London shop someday.

What do you think?  I'd love to know.

The girls have also been having a fun creative time.  With a Play Doh set.  Yep nearly 17 and 14 and they are playing with a Hello Kitty Deluxe Set I got at a car boot a few weeks ago for 50p.  I bought it for Betty who is 21 and adores everything Hello Kitty and yes she has played with it but not as much as Nellie and Belle.  They are sat right now chatting and making cakes, umpalumpas, sweets and rose gardens.  They keep shouting mummy look at this, mummy look at mine - they have not called me mummy for a long time and actually its quite endearing.  I took some sneaky photos - here they are.

Hellooooo  Kittyyyyyyyy

Teeny tiny

Little things make us happy.  K had a good time and enjoyed telling me about going in Alfie's Vintage Market etc.  He thought I was a little fed up when he got back.  Well I said I would have liked to have known you had got there ok, thought you might have checked we were all ok. Oh I have only just got my phone out of my bag.  Oh dear.

Got some goodies at the car boot will share another day.

If you are reading Janey it is hot hot HOT here and the mossies are biting but only Belle.

Gorgeous top - I love that fabric.

One of the things I miss about working with small children is playing with playdoh - perhaps I should just make some for me - am sure my teenage males would probably join in and play too.

I love tour top. Really pretty fabric and the bow just adds to it perfectly.

Ahhh, playdoh fun ... so addictive isn't it?
