Did a search for a knitting pattern earlier and its selling on ebay for 27 pounds!!! so am keeping an eye on that.
Anyhow have made three golf club covers just need to make the pompoms for them and have decided to have a go at making some knitted cakes. Will take some photos to post when they're done.

Then onto the reception at the sculpture gallery in Woburn Abbey. The boys got party bags to keep them quiet during the meal. On of the items was a note book with an animal on the front that had large googley eyes and a pair of sunglasses. We had great fun with them!
They also got a flexible ruler which they decided was a bracelet except for Oscar who thought it was great fun to wear it on his head The next day Lewis decided that when he grows up he wants to be a rockstar.
I can't imagine why!!
Sunday was spent playing in the garden at Grandma's and travelling back as we were all very sleepy people

Jason guessed that today was green day, managed a whole outfit and matching jewellery. Recieved a few complements as well! Thank you Hennie for this idea. I even managed to coordinate my music to fit in with the green theme, of course it had to be Green Day.
Had to take Oscar to the doctors as he's been having a green day too ( out of his ears!!)
I did have a suprise when the postie came my MISI swap arrived it was from jai jai - whose shop can be found on MISI some beautiful hand beaded snowflakes. I will be putting these away for later in the year and when they come out Iwill remember the swap and how I enjoyed it.
Off now to find out what the colour for tomorrow is. Might even try to coordinate the kids clothes as well!

Yesterday we had to wear the colour pink. I really struggled with this the only pinkthings i own are a pair of socks with hearts on which have been residing in the bedroom bin for the last few days! I very nearly had to get them out to wear. However i did manage to find i thin light weight pair at the bottom of the draw.
Today's colout is purple. Thank goodness for that a much better choice. Started the day by wearing my purple little Miss. Naughty dressing gown, got dressed with a purple top and even put on earrings to match. Then guess what i found a necklace with a pink faberge style egg doh! could have worn that yesterday. Will go to bed with a purple nightie on! I think the colour tomorrow is either red or green will have to check.
This set me off thinking about cakes( not sure why) so have spent most of the day hunting down a pattern that i like. After may hours searching i found some. When i've done some i'll put the picture on here. Thought they would make good teacher pressies.
Well i'm off now to undo the knitting i did last night as i don't like the results. Got to get it done as it's for the swap!

The reason for this? was a particular thread that was taking place it was rather funny. It is still making me chuckle even now! As a result not only did I not do anything but ended up going to bed much later than planned but worth it!
If you want to have a laugh read the thread titled i nearlt had heart failure today...
Been feeling a little guilty too, as Lewis (the middleone) went to his first party today on his own. Seems to have thoroughly enjoyed himself. The two elder ones are playing races with the whistle he got.
I'll be back later hopefully having finished some of me things

Thought I'd better give a brief oultline of who I am. My name is Julie and I am a 37 year old mum of three young boys and wife to Dan who is in the Royal Navy.
I decided to start this blog as way of recording the things I do so that Dan can ( hopefully) read whats going on at home.
Today I took the boys to a local indoor play centre with a friend of mine. The kids loved it I however came away with the world's biggest headache. Some of the parent there just let their kids run riot, letting them scream at the top of their voices.
Oh yes forget to mention I do have a tendency to get cross about somethings!!!
The boys had a lovely afternoon playing together whilst i created a pair of shorts from a school pair of trousers and made a pe bag for the the middle one ready for when he starts school in September.
Thats all for now going to finish off some items for my misi shop. I'll let you know how that goes tomorrow.
