ok so as im writting this post outside there is a massive down fall of hail stones... i think winter has finally set in! The only bad news about this seeing as i love winter is that i walk to work on a morning and it takes me 45 minutes to get there so im guessing that im going to have to do some serious shopping and stock up on wooly jumpers and wool tights to keep myself warm! lol :)

Ok so this is going to be my halloween post as i wont have time to post tomorrow. Im planning to watch horror movies with a friend and stuff my face with sweets and toffee apples! Yummy! I hope you all have a great halloween and i would love to know what you all have planned?

Also despite having an eye infection this week and feeling like every time i blink my eyes are being cut with glass i have managed to get some more stitching done on 'the first day of spring' by sarah kay and i have found that i acctually have my stitching drive back! how good is my timing! hehe (if you ever get an eye infevtion i found that if you sit in a car with the heating on and the air vents pointing at your face it really helps the scratching feeling and stops them hurting as much! just a little bit of positive in my rant lol)
Have a great weekend and a fun halloween night :)

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…
