Congratulations! Always visit your page on the net.


Sorry to hear the little lady has been poorly - hope she's soon better :) x


Oh I love this post - having one of these days my self: we have had a hurricane here (east coast of NC, USA) and even though we're all clear now, I have a flat tire so I'm stuck missing a football game and a date, so sad :( I'm trying to make the most of it though, cleaning and decorating, maybe even sewing later. Thanks for the encouragement that these days are something of a sidetrack but could also altually be pleasantry in disguise. Hope the little one is feeling loads better!!!


Could you share the colors you used in your ripple blanket?


Hope she's better soon and the school start goes smoothly for you!
I love flowers in jam jars so simple and pretty!


Oh dear, sorry to hear little lady has been poorly. Certainly hope she perks up over the weekend and is well enough for school on Monday. Good luck wishes sent to both of you for when it does happen.
And what a beautiful card!

Hope she's feeling better, at least you managed to sneak an extra two quiet days alone together!
Our bath is too long to enjoy a good magazine read. Unless you're 6'7" you end up sliding under the water whilst trying to keep the mag from getting wet, not a pleasant or relaxing experience. Think I'll try the slippers, pj's and hot water bottle version instead!

I hope your little one is feeling much better now. What a lovely post today - a wonderful caring Mummy - a Blessing to your family.


You look so cosy there under your crocheted blankets, still I bet it was strange, psyching your self up for the big day, only to have it postponed. I hope she is feeling much better now - Natalie x P.S - I haven't forgotten about our meet, its just been really busy round here lately, are weekends still best for you or could you manage a week day?


Aww bless her. Hope she's feeling better now. My two aren't the cuddly cuddly sort of kids (well, L is more cuddly than A) and when they are ill (which isn't that often, thank goodness), I get long & lovely cuddles, esp from the son! lol. And I cherish every single second of it. Lurvely!


If I was poorly I would love to be at your house!! But you would have to make me toast and marmite though...it cures EVERYTHING! Hope little lady is feeling perkier soon.x


Are you sure she was ill!!!!!!! I know she was - what a lovely gift. They want even more hugs when they are ill. Pasha started her new school on Thursday and it went very well. Jasper and Skyla really missed her and really miss being at school. They start on Monday - I have to turn a deaf ear to all their 'wish we were at school' comments. Dont they know how much that hurts - cheeky buggers!!!!

Do you know what colours you have recently bought for all your crochet and where do you buy your wool from. I know you got some from Peter Jones but I am sure your crocheting outways your blogging of purchasing wool.

Have a good weekend! Love Emma xxxx


shame she wasnt well but secretly i would have been pleased at a day of cuddles and laziness :-) hope it goes well for next week!! i really need a new flannel now and i hadnt even realised :-D

Your pictures are so comfy and cozy. What little girl wouldn't adore a mommy that is so good to her. Plus mommy is really good to herself too and if mommy is happy...everyone is happy!


Glad the little lady improved by the afternoon. I like the stripy face flannel and the bath soak. I like the idea of flowers all around the house too - even in the bathroom!


oh I hope your little one feels better soon, and that when she does start school it all goes really well xx

To Little Lady, hope you are feeling much better, and I love the card you made for your mummy.

Hope she's feeling better, sounds like she had a lovely nurse to look after her.


So sorry to hear little lady was sick but it sounds like you definitely made the best of it.


love the little sock slippers - hope little lady is well again soon.

Hope the little ldy is feeling better. How nice to have that one extra day to cuddle up. Hope the school drop of goes well when it happens.


Except when they're REALLY sick, I've always liked when the kids have been home from school with a cold. When they were little it was because, if they had a teeny temperature, they were so blessedly QUIET. And sleeping! Now that they're older (9 and 12), they are extremely cuddly when they feel yucky and make me feel they just might need me a little bit, still.

Shameless but honest!
