It’s been a glorious week here in Cornwall, and the kiddos were back at school. We didn’t do a lot on Monday, and Tuesday the youngest was at nursery so I sewed and made (see the bunting, bags, and mixer cover posts).
As Wednesday was forecast to be yet another beautiful day and I didn’t want to miss out I arranged to go to the waterfront with a friend. We are so lucky to live where we live. The waterfront is a 10 minute walk from my school. The view is beautiful.
The youngest and my friends little girl had a great time 🙂
I’ll say it again, we are so so lucky to have this within walking distance.
After a few hours in the sun we went for lunch, in a ‘posh’ wine bar – perhaps not the best place to take the youngest but the two of them were really well behaved.
That thing with the egg timers on is apparently a steeping timer, to let you know when your tea is stewed, was still far too weak for my taste though… I like a strong builders brew without the sugar… pg tips for me! yum! haha
Was a lovey day 🙂
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it but, I’m poo free/no poo – which means I don’t use shampoo. I stopped using it because my skin is very sensitive on my face and scalp and having used everything I could and my scalp still being in a mess I stopped. I didn’t use anything except water for 3 months, and have been using baking soda and apple cider vinegar for the last 2 months. The kids got nits as soon as they went back to school and ‘kindly’ passed them on. No poo meant a scramble to see what I could use… I came up with olive oil… and cling film! hope it worked! lots of nit combing too…
Had my Jamberry launch party – didn’t go very well fortunately and didn’t have the interest – I’ll keep trying but was quite disheartened. Although I’m still enjoying them immensely!
I also voted in the EU referendum and I proudly voted to remain, for a myriad of reasons, but everyone will vote their own way 🙂 I am terrified if we come out though hat it will mean for families and our children.
In order to cheer me up after the disaster of the launch party the hubby ordered me a new handbag knowing how desperate I was for a new one, and knowing I’d seen one I really liked in the national trust shop at antony house at the weekend, bless him.
I have also been practising m papercutting.
Papercutting was featured on make! craft Britain – a bbc four programme. They all said the same as I – that you get so absorbed in it that everything else fades away – which is why it is a fantastic mindfulness activity. I thoroughly recommend it 🙂
Finally, I’ve got a few sewing projects in the pipeline that I cut out with my new rotary cutter. I have completed one already and am part way through another! All of them I shall detail in blog posts 🙂
I’ve got a coffee afternoon for my Jamberry on Thursday this week at a community café – really nervous but hope that goes well. Wish me luck.
Hope we all have a good week 🙂
