Half Term Flew By ......

Monday came and went in the midst of changing Alice's and Em's rooms over, so Em could have a bit more space. She still has to put up with my sewing corner as that didn't change over. Tuesday was mostly more of the same except I had to go to the dentist for a filling - now I've said this before, but I am the biggest baby when going to the dentist. Its not justified though as my dentist is a gentleman and very understanding. When I got home Em had made me lunch and a very cute pipe cleaner flower called "Guenoladooless" It made my day. Wednesday we went shopping and had lunch out at Starbucks, Why Starbucks? because they are the only cafe that actually keeps labelled dairy-free food. Other cafes are not sure/don't label/or look at you as though you are speaking a foreign language when you ask if its dairy-free. Thursday we went up to London and visited Madame Tussauds which was brilliant. Em was delighted she could have her photo taken with Britney Spears and Shakespeare. Cool! We enjoyed it too although it was very busy. Friday we went to Ryde in the Isle of Wight. It brought back many memories of childhood holidays spent with my Aunt, Scruffles her little dog and Boy cat Long sunny days spent on Ryde beach cockling and building sandcastles with Mum. My Aunt died in 1993 and this was the first time I had been back. It was full of poignant memories. Friday evening Em went to Guide sleepover and had a wonderful time, she came home this afternoon happy and tired. In my previous post I mentioned the Handmade help appeal for the families/people affected by the bushfires in Victoria, Australia. I have now added the button to my page so you can have a look at the appeal too - you never know there may be something you could help with. I have also added the followers list to my side bar, please add yourself to my list. Happy crafting, Jane

Hi Jane,
You did have a busy Half Term. I hope the weather at the sea shore was warm enough.
So, you didn't do any crafting or knitting? :)

Good grief! Britney Spears in wax? What is the world coming to? Hope the whole dentist thing went well. I totally bond on dentist fear!
