Sewin' and fixin'

The other day my boots gave out. I have a very lovely pair of sheepskin boots (sorry Peta) that have a stitch down the top stretching from the front of my shin to my toes. I got up from dinner and felt this tug and a strange breeze and realised my entire foot was poking out my shoes. I had trodden on the one loose thread that held the whole merry thing together.

So I decided to be very thrifty and got a needle and thread and sewed it up myself (yay me). And while I was doing this I looked at my sewing box and decided to have a rummage through the internets for a lovely up to date option and I found this! Its currently on Etsy here. I love the colour and bold and functional design which really says anyone can use this. Also all the little things inside look pretty handy.

Looks like I'll have to rip up some things to justify this purchase... where are my boots?

Did anyone else wake up Wednesday to no power? I thought I'd counter the whole thing and skip the emails and go straight to the news... then realised that wouldn't work either

In fact it was so bad, and myself so distraught at what must have been 20 minutes (gasp) of no morning telly, that I found I couldn't write my timely blog even when it came back on. That's right sun, because of you, no inane timely waffle!

Anyway, here are some very lovely and very calming packaging solutions for all your present needs, don't forget Mother's Day coming up! You can find these at the Sundance Catalog website here, and I am seriously re-thinking how I pack our prints after seeing this.

So new it's almost shiny...

You can now buy the above at notonthehighstreet, and it comes in a lovely pink version too. Though the green is definitely my favourite, both are fantastic and sure to fire and inspire little minds. Why not check it out and get for your loved little ones?

I'd get it for mine but the naughty little beavers don't deserve it. When they finally understand what the term "too early for Lego, go to bed" means, I'll be there like lightning!

Now if only there was some way to distract them, some colourful prints maybe? hmmm? Oh well, looks like you've got to get it whatever now. Or just for yourself, that green is almost edible!!
