Yesterday

the little one and I got a little bit of time to ourselves.  Molly needed to have her haircut at a new clipper, our regular lady moved to S.A. sadly.  The new clipper lives close by to a lovely local water attraction, so we decided to wait the hour until she finished. We went to the supermarket, picked up some fruit and a magazine and headed to the park.
Ate our blackberries
and watched the ducks.  It was nice to have a bit of one on one time together.
Today is our last day of holidays, the books are almost finished, 43 covered 3 more to go and I only have two at school!  Monday is the start of a new year, and a new school for Miss 7.  I hope it will be a good year for her this year, it's always so scary starting somewhere new (for me too) but her sister will be close by if she needs her.
I bought some new fabric the other day, a bit for me and a bit for Miss 7, a new bag for each of us.  One just for me, just because and one for her, a gift for her birthday coming up. It's going to be a busy week, school and birthday preparations, I'll will be feeling the end of the holiday well and truly I think.

Have a wonderful weekend

  4. I love one on one time with my kids too. The reversible bag looks like it will be great - a similar design to my favourite bag of all time! 43 books - you deserve a medal!

  5. Lovely fabric and lovely pattern. Thanks for the link. And you've also added some more validation to my decision not to send my 4.5-year-old to school this year - another year before I have to worry about covering books!!!! Phew!

  7. Beautiful fabric. I am sure it will make delightful bags.

    I am glad you were able to conclude the holidays on a high. The blackberries and time at the park sound enjoyable.

    Good luck to Miss 7 for next week.
