A bit of this and that

I am feeling pretty tired, yesterday I had a delightful but totally exhausting day with Millie.
She came with a list of things she wanted to do, she and her sister Celina, who I had looked after once a week until she went to school over 10 years ago had had a chat and Millie wanted to pack into one day all the things Celina did over years.
I made play dough and then found I didnt have any food colouring, not that that mattered, we watched 4 old disney tapes I had that she hadnt seen, she painted, she drew, made a button bracelet, stuck in stickers in her special pink book, talked me into making her a pink horse, I forgot to take its photo and it was pretty strange any way but she was pleased with it and told me that the material she had chosen was the same as on the blanket I had made her when she was born which she still uses, I had forgotten that untill I saw the shape cut out of the material.
By 5.30 I was just about ready for bed, just as well through the day I had made soup, a casserole and biscuits that she had to taste to make sure they were ok.
It was a fun day but as Tab hasnt worked since before she was born, and now is full time, it was a bit of a shock to the system to be needed and again today when I had to collect older sister Celina from the high school as her ears were playing up, they have all had a virus of one sort or another all through the school holidays.
But I did walk this morning, the bottom two photos and finished the top two little textile pieces, not sure what I will do with them but they are waiting to be used for something.
I even managed to clean the house today, so I am sure I will sleep well tonight.

I used to love it when Ebony and I would do all those things together.
I think the worst part about it is cleaning up the mess.

Sounds like a very full and wonderful day!
I like your pics and the textiles you created. Hope you had a good rest.

Kids are so easily amused at that age, even if it is exhausting for their grandmother! Your textile pieces are lovely. Cheeers

Oh my, - it makes me tired just thinking of it, - but there was a time when three home schoolers came to see me one day a week so their Mum had a day off and I loved every minute of it!
