What Rocked My world This Week?
I woke up.Number one I'm stealing from you Virginia. I love that you are thankful for it every week - and so am I. I woke up this morning. Surrounded by people that love me and that I love back. We can put food on our table and clothes on our backs. We are all reasonably healthy people and we have a lot of fun together with not many pennies. We are rich in the ways that matter. And I don't care what anyone who is crying poverty at the moment says. If you have that - you have enough. I hate these news reports with people bemoaning their lot in the recession. Yet more often than not they are dripping in gold and living in show homes with massive tellies... Poor? Sell your stuff and get your priorities right more like! Sorry, mini rant!
CreationsLast week when Devon came home from school she presented me with this wall hanging. It was her first go at Batik in her textiles class. I love it - I think the cat looks like it's underwater or maybe staring into a fish tank :P
This was the card she made Craig for his birthday this week. I love that my girls are as crafty as their daft Mum!This post on Anne's blog reminded me of the Tree House I used to have when I was little. It set me off on a Google journey and I ended up on eBay with my finger hovering over the 'buy' button. I resisted - blimey but the stuff we had as children sells for a lot! The Palitoy tree house is one of those ones I can remember getting hours of fun out of. I loved it and can remember someone always falling down the lift shaft - the amount of times my Dad had to get his screwdriver out to launch a rescue mission! My favourite one was always the little girl. when I wasn't playing with the set she would sit on my desk while the rest was put away in the tree. I vaguely remember using the dog kennel as my 'secret' hiding place and feeling oh so smug at being able to hide my little treasures in there. I'm contemplating saving up and getting one as Ruby's main Christmas present this year. Of course Mummy would have to set it up and test it out - make sure all the parts were working... maybe store it on her shelves... what?? WHAT??
