I promised a pic of the aprons...well, one will have to do for the moment, though they are now all finished. This one is a gift, but I've made myself one in the same fabric, minus the frilly bits (I'm not really a frilly person!)
One scarf commissioned by littlest munchkin...though probably rather longer than it needed to be. She wanted one just like the one I made biggest munchkin last year.
Then of course, biggest munchkin wanted a photo in hers!
Then a lovely lunch at a very exclusive alfresco restaurant.
Yes, dear readers, it is actually winter. Looks like it will be a very dry one.
The chef in her kitchen. The rather untidy courtyard/barbeque area.
(Hah! Beloved teases me about my paving efforts, but they're still there, still doing their job, after about 7 years!)
Ooh lovely, the kettle's on!
Here's the menu. I was going to make a comment about the frequent appearance of be-socked feet OUTSIDE (I'm constantly telling them to 'put your shoes on'!) Then I looked at the next pic and though better of it.
Mummy in her gardening clothes...and socks! Very flattering I don't think!
Mmmmm, pizza! And Flynn makes another appearance. Looking innocent and NOT digging up the bare patches in the lawn.
Then we were treated to a floor show of aerial gymnastics...by the chef...and waiter!
Just as well daddy wasn't there...children believe hills hoists are designed to swing on...daddies on the other hand, believe they are designed to hang up motorbike filters, tent flies, karate protecty shin pads, old tarps and the like.
And we discovered that faeries are rather partial to faery size pancakes with lashings of maple syrup! Littlest said she could see tiny footprints in the syrup, so they must be very sticky faeries!
And last, for now, this is what you might call an aural doodle. Sat down earlier this evening, after munchkins were off to bed, and muddled about with Cordelia and a little song melody, and thought, hmmm, I like that, I'd better record it so I don't forget it. It might even get words one day!
