I'm still here,RIP Modem.

On the 13th of April due to an electrical strom our internet stopped working!RRrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!.
It is so frustrating not being able to access the internet and not knowing what the problem is.
We are back on line now and the prob is sorted.
Missed you guys!!!
It was good to live without the internet for a while too.
A little time away made me realise I've been obsessing a little too much(bloody Librians we have next to no sense of proportion) about my little page in cyberspace and I've set myself a couple of rules do not turn the computer on before the school run in the morning.....always ends in tears!
So in running order this is what we've been up to.
Hosted a party for 35 5yo's.(Indoors due to the shocking weather)
We went camping with friend's.
Made some bunting for Mairi's friend Sarah who turned 5 on the 10th of April.

Check out the photo's.:)

Mairi turn's 5!
We had a garden themed party,as she really wanted to be the sun,unfortunalty it has poured rain here for nearly 2 weeks,so we had it inside.

Daylight savings

(photo by very talented photographer husband who was grumbling that I don't credited his photos on my blog(it was one time!)All other images are mine)

My poor bubba's sleep routine is completely topsy turvy.She has had a little cat nap this morning,but pretty much cried the rest of the day.Thank goodness for the wiggles,she's dancing to the cd now....I have managed to update my shop during the reprieve.I made Skye this yo-yo singlet last month and decided to do a couple more on the weekend.
More colours and sizes to follow through the week.

Dolly Birds

Ow!I have a headache.
When I woke up this morning I decided to list these 2 dolly birds on my etsy shop.
Little did I know it would take me 1 1/2 hours to take the photographs.
Wow!These little babies are hard to take.
Time for a cuppa,me thinks!

Domestic Goddess' and Mail Bliss

When Mairi was born I was over the moon to have a healthy baby and I had secretly wished for a little girl,I got my wish but I was determined to bring her up free form gender stereotypes.
But come 18 months old,she really did seem to prefer baby dolls was interested in social happenings and domestic stuff more so than anything else.
When Skye came along it happened for her even earlier I saw her at 10 months old nursing and playing with babies.
I guess the point is, before I had children(and my experience only being girls thus far)I would of never imagined posing for a picture like this,but the more I get into this game(motherhood and housewivery)I realise that it's a really important job we do and more so in my experience something fundamental to being a female whether we are mothers or not is the need to nurture.Whether it's looking after our children,partners,friends and/or animals.
So why not look spunky while we are at it!
Wow!That was a deep paragraph to show off the little pinny I found for Skye at the oppy.
Don't we look great?

Also received some lovely mail this week,some Ottobre mag back issues(they really are fab check them out)and a book 'The Kept Man'by Jami Attenberg from Nikkishell,which she sent to me after I commented on her review of the book on her blog.Thanks Nichola!

More Kitties

Been a busy little crafter this week,I have renewed vigour this week,sparked by a solution to childcare and a decision to do a local market fortnightly starting May,so I've been hard at work producing some Kitty Cats and I've also listed some Babushka doll hanging ornaments that I made at Xmas time for the tree,but I love them so much we've had them on display on top of a bookcase hanging off an Ikea display thingo and they look Fab! Would also look good on a door handle!
They will be listed in my etsy shop,from 1pm today.
