I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day? I’ve been a little quiet as we’ve had (what must be) a final 2012 incident but I wont bore you with it here! Suffice to say whilst I know 2012 has been really really good to some of you, I’m done with this year.
A massive positive though was that all the hard work me and Husband had put in on Boy’s new bedroom paid off. He absolutely loves it and disappears upstairs to play in it and have adventures!
I suspect his favourite bit is the lights under the bed – it’s an LED ribbon and there’s a remote control that you use to change the colours, or make the flash! He’s mastering climbing up and down to the top bunk too, although I’m quite pleased that he’s sleeping in the bottom one at the moment… I don’t want to hear a crash in the early hours when half asleep he gets it wrong! Lots of practice first I think!
There’s a lot of ‘Me Hearties’ going on too as he has a pirate outfit which he loves – a last minute ‘impulse’ buy by me in the Early Learning Centre the weekend before Christmas. My sister bought his some foam cutlasses and if I can I’ll get you a picture of Pirate Boy on his hobby horse brandishing a sword. He tries so hard to look fearsome, but is just too darn cute to pull it off!
I got the blind and curtains done, finally hanging the curtains Christmas Eve (so late partially due to some idiot moments on my part during construction of the blind and having to re-do the header tape on the first curtain as it was too close to the radiator when hung). I am so pleased with how they came out though. It was definitely worth the effort and I hope they’ll have a long life as they’re not babyish…
I was a very lucky girl and got some lovely sewing goodies as well as my swap items! I now have the Alma Blouse pattern by Sewaholic which will be made up with some leopard print lawn with a black peter pan collar. Perfect for Pretty Grievances Jungle January!
I also now own some pinking shears – Gingher ones no less too and oh my, they do cut beautifully! Also some gorgeous lengths of fabric which will be pre-washed today as I fancy some very selfish sewing.
I hope you all had a wonderful day and were spoilt rotten.
