Report-age

You probably know I am in the throes of a massive house and life move….surrounded by packing cases, bags for the charity and mounds of laundry, I am contemplating life choices. Walk with me a while… Apart from the obvious catalysts for these reflections, I came across my old school reports this week as I…

Calm : Storm

It’s quiet chez Stitich tonight. Boys in bed. OH out. Me, wrapped up in a quilt on the sofa, tippy typing. No telly. Just the sound of Lego coming from Elder’s eyrie. The calmness that will shatter tomorrow because it’s CHRISTMAS EVE!!! Younger has been a human alarm clock each morning, counting down the days…

All mapped out

How are you all school holidays going? We are at the bitter end, full of wailing and gnashing of teeth. And that’s just me. Here’s what’s saved my sanity this afternoon. After a hard morning playing in the park getting completely covered in mud, the boys came home and were fit for nothing but sitting…

Key to it all

I made these for Other Half, personalised key rings. You can buy the blanks from your local stationers. Stamp your label onto your paper of choice. Et voila!! These are named fairly cryptically so as to make them hard to trace should you lose them and an unsavoury type pick then up. And it was…
