Wey Hey its half term!

Well, it is half term and not only are Fin and Gabs off but so am I!!!! I am going to have a crafty week as I really have quite a few things to do!! So have come to an arrangement with the two little ones, fun things out and about each morning and at home for the afternoons! as it happens have been home most of the day today as the weather is awful as usual for a half term!!! Fin and Gabs had a good play at one of our local indoor play centres and then had a treat for lunch, but it is just  so cold we had to come home!!

Fin and Gabs are very glad to have a week off school, I love the above image of a day in the classroom!

Even though school is on a break, I fully intend to keep my eye on both Fin and Gabs reading! We have been to the Library and got some lovely books out for all of us so we have no excuses!

I also need to get some work done for my Homespun and Vintage Fair on Saturday!! It has come around quickly and even though I have been making a few things each night I am having my usual panic that I have not made enough!!! The above card is one of my new designs and I just thought it fitted in with the theme of the fair to have things all handmade, I have a few more designs along the same lines which I have not taken pics of yet.

My "I love Buttons" image is now a card and I am so pleased with it! There will be a set of these soon and a Christmas version of the above is nearly ready too! You can buy the button card from www.bespoke and it is in the new Winter Brochure.

The fire is glowing nicely and we are all just about warmed through! We are going to sit with a nice hot cup of tea and watch The Railway Children, no matter how many times we have seen that film we just love it!!!
Have a lovely day everyone.


  1. Oh how I wish I was curled up on the setee watching 'The Railway Children' it never fails does it,' daddy,my daddy...' sob,sob,pass the hankies! have a lovely week with your babes.

  2. Hope you have a great week ! I'd love a weeks holiday right now, but have to wait til Christmas for that! I love the Railway Children too and Swallows and Amazons (a favourite as a kid!, have you ever seen that? :) x

  3. I love the new card you've made for the fair on saturday, hope you sell loads.
