Lazy Days

Well I say lazy, but don't feel like I've stopped this weekend! The kids school uniforms are ordered & paid for, the house has been tidied, new storage solutions bought (see above), a fabulously lush new chair from Laura Ashley in their sale which I just had to go back for, a new wardrobe of clothes for James who seems to constantly be growing at the moment.......................

..............James went to a party, Amelia & I went pottery painting, I went grocery shopping *phew* and then Ross & I had a lovely meal with a bottle of fizz in the evening (at home) - and that was just Saturday!

Sunday (today) was much more relaxed. Amelia begged for a day at home (suited me fine!) and James had requested a barbeque. They were both happy pottering in the garden & with their toys whilst Ross & I did a little more sorting, then this afternoon my parents came over and we had a fabulous lamb barbeque with salad & roasted veg & rounded off with the most amazing soft fruits with meringue & cream. James & Amelia ate so much today and now they are flat out in bed - it's lovely and peaceful and I am about to get the machine out to continue with one of my WIP's (not quite sure which just yet)

These photos are of some storage we found in Matalan on Saturday. It's meant to be a bathroom caddy (and we bought one for the bathroom too) but with a few WIP's on the go already, I commented to Ross how fabulous it would be to keep them all together & tucked out of the way. So that is what I have done - two WIP's in there right now with room for one more..................................great stuff - don't you just love it when you find things like that? So despite having run around, I do feel nice and relaxed now and it's been nice to have a "home" weekend this weekend instead of the usual "have to" things we have on.

Oooh clever idea! I could see that making a handy side-of-desk storage idea for scrapping stuff too - mists and paints could be kept tidy and at hand lovely in that! I wonder if Mr T will agree that we have some room for this in my craft room, erm I mean "our" study ;) xxx
