My baby boy! He's noisy, tiring, demanding, never stops crying and yet he's everything i wanted....

We named him BOLT, Don't ask me why his daddy liked the name so i said OK because we'd already been though 100 others, plus the other hundred we went through trying to figure out a name for his sister, who has a new home with my BF's dad. We were actually looking for a border collie for his dads 50Th birthday prezzie but i fell i love with this little guy so ray bought me him!

His sister is named bonnie after about a week and a half of having no name and being called puppy! no pictures of her as yet, because she never sits still!

Bolt, on the other hand seems to sleep more than anything else! I swear he actually believes he's a baby! We've had him two weeks now and he's already learnt where he can and can not pee, and so stop and the road side when told! lol (can you tell that he has taken over my life?)

However there is one bonus to a dog that likes to sleep during the day, just not at night, i get some time to stitch between the walks, toilet runs and general amusement! lol
This is sleepy pooh bear and piglet all done and dusted, now i just have to find the perfect fabric to go with it. I like the star print with it but I'm not sure.

And one last pic just because its cute and its one of my two favourite guys lol. i don't know who is the biggest softie!

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…
