Daily workout

At last a proper winter, snow and below zero temperatures. As I work at home some days I hardly leave the house so I have been making an effort to walk/sledge the children to school. Good in many ways - it is alot easier to get A and E ready and out the door on time with the promise of a sledge ride and it's great exercise for me! I struggled yesterday morning as the Finnish authorities, with their usual efficiency, had ploughed and gritted the pavements so the sledges wouldn't slide!! Last night I got O to get down from storage,the big old wooden sledge my brothers and I had as children. We flew to school this morning - it is big enough for both of them and they rode in style!!
The easter eggs are multiplying, my brain is not quite ready for wet felting yet but I think tomorrow maybe and hurray I have just about sorted out my accounts!!

Great - the weekend away was planned, the kids already to go to their aunt and uncle and I get raging toothache. Now I (sorry) HATE going to the dentist. But go I had to and did. Well toothache sort of sorted and a lovely weekend was had by all! Inspired by all things teeth I have made this for my dentist. I guess she doesn't get many presents and I may not be so enamoured after my root canal work tomorrow!
Bunnies and Easter eggs are occupying my mind at the moment along with aliens, leaves and my accounts. No wonder I keep waking up at night!

Normal service resumed

Husband back to work, children back to school and day care, my workshop is no longer a secret stashing place for Christmas presents - finally back to 'normal'! I have got my next craft fair at the end of February which sounds like a long way off but as we seem to be almost half way through January I need to get my act together. I have got a fair few ideas rattling around my head so now I just need to get the wool out and create! Wish it was as easy as it sounds.....
