My dream of working at home with kids is coming closer to fruition. I suspect I won’t know whats hit me when it does happen but I’m doing what I can to prepare. I am doing a 3 week training course at the moment and between that, being sick 4 times in 3 weeks with totally different germs each time and trying to find time to do the odd day of paying work I am running flat out and looking forward to doing diddly-squat this weekend. Nothing, not a sausage.
I’ve been preparing a kids area in the living room with toys which I will show next time. But one thing I found I am having trouble putting in the kids area, I much prefer it in my studio:
I suspect it’ll become a kids toy soon though, the living room will be kid central, our bedroom will be the kids sleeping room and that means I’ll have to clear part of the studio for the cat to take refuge in! Poor fella!
One thing I probably won’t do this weekend is sew, however I can’t say I don’t have inspiration after the swaps I received this week! I asked Mette ages ago to do a private swap and we finally got around to it and she sent me this parcel of gorgeousness:
Then I drooled over a fabric FallingUtopia used from Ikea which we don’t have here (and won’t be getting because some smartass thinks that they are so popular that it’ll cause traffic problems. Traffic problems?? Who cares? I want me some Ikea!!) and when she offered to send some to me I suggested a swap. She not only sent me the one fabric, she sent another one and some patterns. Spoilt rotten!! And it feels good!!
