Syd painted a dolphin, Ash did a hanger thing for the wall or a door, she made it with tiny dragonflies for Aunt Kim cos she knows Aunt Kim likes dragonflies. Sweet. I did a spoon rest for the kitchen. There are not ready yet but when we get them I'll be sure and post the fruits of our efforts!!
What I get most from the pics above is that Syd tends to concentrate more than her goofy sister!!!!
Update.... went and retrieved finished items last night... boo... they messed up my spoon rest...yay...they are letting me go back and do another one for free (uuhhhh yeaaahhh, you better). So will post again with finished items later.
Today is the day we go and get the kids back, feeling a little weird about it all. One part of me can't wait to see those beautiful little rascals and hear all about their vacay with Nanny, while another part of me has really enjoyed being just me and him for a few days. So the guilt slips in and I'm thinking "am I a bad mother", "should I have even had kids in the first place" "will I be able to cope when they come back into this peaceful, tidy house". One thing is for sure there are deffo gonna be some changes around here matey. Like, Spongebob, haven't missed him one bit and if they want to get their fix it's only gonna be in their rooms... they both have TVs for Pete's sake so why does mine have to be contaminated with that crap? Another thing, I am only gonna cook one meal at dinner time, you don't likey, you don't eaty. I will, however, endeavour to include them in food preparation that way it may encourage them to eat what they just made. Oh and one outfit a day unless there's a major spill or disfigurement to the garment, I am saving the planet by cutting out at least five loads of laundry a week. Most important change... Date night for the parents... dig it... we were here first and we want our own time... deal with it.
So dearest readers.... the struggle of woman versus mother is about to begin again, I love my girls to the ends of the earth but this week has taught me that I love me too and adore Mr McG, the princesses are gonna have to realize that they live in our house not the other way around....yeah... good luck with that one Missy, as soon as you see those blond curls and big blue eyes it's all gonna be right back the way it was Miss Melted Heart around those adorable chicklets!!!! one can dream!!!!!
