Wales Here I Come!

I knew there was something i had to do! lol

sorry for the long pause, its just i haven't really had that much time to post or even stitch for that matter!. I've been helping my friend move homes, getting ready for my trip to wales (more about that in a minute) and generally freaking out! It feels like I've lost a week somewhere along the line but cant think how! Oh well there is nothing i can do about it now;)
Right first of all I'll explain the trip to wales, its for a job interview and it last all weekend from the 12th till the 14th, i have to travel all the way to wales for the interview and them on the Sunday I'll find out if i get the job! if i do i say for an extra weeks training and then i come home to collect my stuff ready to move to which ever center i get placed in. The job will be an activities instructor with a firm called kingswood, where we do everything from climbing to archery with kids. I've been waiting nearly a hole year to apply for this and am totally excited from the weekend! My bag is already packed! :)

OK secondly i have managed a little stitching on a new Christmas project...

This is a Sarah Kay design, Ive been wanting to stitch one of her designs for a while now and i decided that because i have recently finished one cross-stitch project i had room for a new one! :) plus i couldn't resist! hehee. I hope i have enough free time to finish Christmas projects if i get this new job!

Good Luck for your interview, my daughters went to a Kingswood local to us a few years ago and loved it - it'll be a very rewarding job.

Happy Halloween

Hi guys, Happy Halloween to you all :D


Little miss had a very fun day dressed as a kitty all day. then her grandad and auntie took her trick or treating for hour while mummy handed out sweeties to other little 'monsters'. I love Halloween just because you have an excuse to dress your little humans up all cute or scary for the fun of it.


I have no doubt that this wont be the one and olny time my daughter wears this dress as she had fun pretending to be a cat and wiggle her tail all day.

Hope you all had fun too

Till next time

Is Having To Much Spoiling My Childs Chance Of A Happy Future?

So tonight i have been completely awakened to a very real possibility, that i am unintentionally ruining my daughters chances of ever just being simply happy. No I'm not just beating myself up needlessly, i read a blog post tonight that made me take a good hard look at what I'm teaching my two year old without even realising it!

My daughter is two and already she has a bedroom full of toys, half of which i could throw away and she would never even notice and with Christmas coming up its bound to get worse! At home i very rarely see her play with one toy for more than 5 minutes before she's running of in search of something else and when i read this post by chance tonight, it made me wonder if she would take this habit and carry it with her for the rest of her life. Would she buy herself something nice only to want more because the first item is not enough?. Am i setting her up for a life of credit payments and living paycheck to paycheck?

I have seen this habit myself in m…

Tutu Expensive!

OK my first post on the matter of saving money when you have a two year old that likes to shop (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!), Is about tutu's. Me and my daughter are taking a holiday in a few weeks with her grandparents to Devon and every year the site has a fancy dress competition. Now naturally I want my daughter to look the part so I ordered her a hand made tutu in the style of Cinderella, It drop kicked by bank balance by £38.50! now don't get me wrong its lush and I love it, but it got me wondering if I could do it myself. They would be perfect for Christmas presents for all her little friends and no doubt little miss is going to want a lot of dress up stuff too! So I looked to see if I could get the stuff and do it myself, and guess what? Of course I could! This tutu cost me £6.60 to make and I have enough fabric left over to do another!  Its made with Two 6inx 25yrd rolls of tulle one pink one purple and a waffle crochet top from china, found on eb…
