I love the way the sun comes through onto this table
Monday Melanie my daughter – separated, single Mum is sick. 7 am the phone rings “Are you free today???” Of course I say – yes. So I go around and get her kids organised, fed. The 5yo ready for school and the 4yo dressed. So off to school we go. Little Miss 4yo has ballet at 11, so Grandma goes off to ballet class. Then school is over and it is back home for the kids.
Tuesday morning back again to get them ready for school and crèche. Off we go and I drop them off. Then back to pick them up and they are having a sleepover as their Mummy is still feeling sick.
Wednesday morning I drop them back home at 7.45am for their Mummy to take them to school and crèche. I have to drop them off early as I have to pick up grandchild Number 3 – 6 month old Riley as his Mummy is working. Home again with Riley for the day. All the family comes for dinner and Riley and his Mum stay over.
Thursday babysitting Riley again and dropping him off to his Mummy at 5.15pm.
Whoa….. what a busy few days it has been.
Yesterday (Thursday) I just had to do something for me……
While Riley was napping ( he is such a wriggler and I never know what position he will end up in)I started doing the Seaside piece.
It measures 8 inches by 10 inches. I used sheet music for the back and a page from a childrens book over that.
I have had these buttons from Laurie of Charming Designs since February and I finally had the chance to use some
I used black glitter for the flowers on the hat and corner, outlined the bow on one little sweetie and the boat in the other ones hand. Then I put red glitter on the bow and doll of the little one in the apron
I love their sweet faces
