When was valentines day again?!!!!

Think I may have missed valentines day!

I do love my longsuffering hubby and this is such a flattering picture!
Am struggling today, I lost my zigzag foot, ordered another one only to find it in my sling bag!
Am waiting for some new cotton fabric to dry and then I can make some more breast and mummy pads to go into my ebay shop.
Sometimes it feels like I have so many ideas my head will explode!
I flit from one thing to another but it is coming to crunch time soon, I have to make a decision about returning to my job and unless I can make a go of I'm not sure what to do.
I love tinkering, doing bits and pieces but find it hard to focus on one thing at a time!
I have for instance awoken with the mental pattern for a girls dress with snap shoulders which would be ideal for summer and our upcoming holiday. The material is laying ready for cutting on my dining room table.
I mastered using my snap press too so have the resin snap press world at my feet :0)
I need to do those posters for the car, so everyone knows what I am up too and my website is looking a little neglected to say the least.
On a brighter note I opened a folksy shop to sell my OOAK items as I feel they may sell better there than ebay.

Really should go to bed!

Keep thinking about it but, guess I should do it!
We had snow again today, please let the schools be open.
Cabin Fever anyone!
Managed to get out today for a short while to go to a well known orange coloured supermarket?
Got called home to take Ana to her rehearsal for the Shakespeare Festival on Thursday evening.
Made a coffee cake for desert today, it was very nice and will be using the recipe again.
Morgan donned her A ballerina apron to assist and is getting a dab hand at breaking eggs without leaving behind half the shell.
Toyed with the idea of getting my machines out as Ana has promised to be a guinea pig and try out my new washable facial wipes.
They don't have a name yet, but she has chosen bamboo velour one side and organic cotton flannel the other.
If they manage to get off the amount of eye make-up she uses they can remove anything!
Will post pictures when done.
Asked Phil to pass me my silk indio wrap from my carrier bag tonight and when he couldn't find it he remarked "How many of these things have you got?!"
3 long, 3 short, 3 mei tai and 1 ringsling (not enough imo, oh well!)
When I remarked I would like some Bruce Parry books he asked if I would like them for my birthday.
I said I would rather have an expensive carrier for my birthday to which he replied I would buy it anyway regardless of cost!
Be careful its a jungle out therex

We asked for a snowman not the end of the world.

This is my blog, somewhere to rant for no reason whatsoever, you may all join me on my quest to raise kids, run a house, build a business and grow old with my husband.

This was the view at 6am, after digging my husband out and pushing his motorbike back in front of the house!

Its looks beautiful the real power of nature.

Would like to thank fate that Mr Tesco delivered our shopping on Wednesday, that we live near a postman and he got all our mail and delivered it and for the fact I haven't lost my mind while being stuck in the house with 4 kids who haven't been to school since wednesday!
