This one was supposed to be a jacket but as it was one of the first patterns I found I'm not that happy with it what do you think?
As always thank you for taking the time to read my blog and guess what that's right I'm off knitting now.

These are the ones I've done for Lewis' Pre-School teachers. Seem strange that he will be starting school in September.

Also during my not so creative time I've taught myself to crochet and have made some hair scrunchies. It's a shame that I haven't got any girls (and for those of you who are thinking maybe NO I don't want anymore!) I think they would would make a lovely addition instead of ribbons. I have listed them in my misi store-if your interested why not take a look.
Then after making my friend her bag I thought I'd make myself one. I wanted it to be larger enough to carry a spare nappy for Oscar, wipes and his cup as well as my odds and ends, but not as big as the traditional changing bags. It sits well on the hip so allows a free hand. Typical me though showed my mum and she now wants one! (but she doesn't need the nappy bit), then I listed so might have to make some more. Its reversible so at least if one side gets dirty I can turn it inside out and nobady would know.
Lastly I took the boys to get theirs hair cut last weekend as Jason was in the school porduction of Joseph and he needed to look smart. That's all for nowI've got to go and do the ironingI'm afraid whilst Jason is at a party, Oscar is having his nap and Lewis is quietly resting and trying not to scratch.

Other than that not to much to report from the south coast. Jason will be performing in Joseph and his amazing technicolour dream coat next week. Don't think much learning has gone on at school this week other than rehearsals. I have completely lost all interest in crafting just can't seem to gather up any enthusiasm and when something is made I think its a load of old pants.
Going to do the washing up and a few other chores beforeI think about having a cup of tea.

I've recently come to the conclusion that there is something seriously wrong with my family.

Whilst dad has been doing that I've managed to fit in a little crafting. Here is a doughnut with white icing and chocolate drizzle.
I then thought that a chocolate cupcake with pink icing and 100s and 1000s would be worth a try. Also in between this I am trying to teach myself to crochet. The first pattern I tried kept going wrong so got cross thinking it was me, but when mum look at it she said the pattern wasn't clear. That gave me hope. Tried a different one and it worked! so when I get bored of the cakes i can try that instead. I've also been asked if I can make a knitted ice cream so am off to try that in a while.

Now what I must mention at this stage is that we'd walked into school this morning which is about 1.5 miles away so I was rather out of puff as I'd rushed to the school. By the time I got tere I was very red faced and out of breath. What I should also say here is that Jason had woken up yesterday morning with a gunky eye, which he'd rubbed clear, as a result his eye ball looked very red, so I thought leave it til the morning see what happens don't think he's got an infection as the eye wasn't weeping and he wasn't rubbing it or complaining about it. When he got up his eye looked loads better and he still wasn't complaining so sent him to school.
The receptionist said he got conjunctivitis so has got to see a doctor and must be taken home cand can't come back til it's cleared up AAAAAARRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH. Did they bother asking him the routine questions no. Rushed him down to the doctors thinking got to cancel his outing got a hospital appointment for myself what am I to do. Fortunately my mum and dad rescued me again and came down to help. Got him into the doctors pretty quick and guess what no eye infection.
Brought him home by now it nearly half past 11 and I have to collect Lewis at 1215. I then phoned the school amongst other calls I'd recieved told them he was ok they said oh well he can come back then! I told them no I would be keeping him at hime fo the rest of the day as they had found it necessary to send him home. I wouldn't mind but the person who said he'd got it isn't a medical person, as they would have asked those simple questions, but was leaving to go on a school trip all dressed in a skimpy top and shorts!
Once I'd collected Lewis things did become a lot less hectic and my hospital appointment was ok. Thank you for letting me rant and even more so if you got to the end of this I'm off now to do some crafting whilst watching Ashes to Ashes.
