Back Home

It's so nice to be back home but I must say, it was so hard to say good-bye. When I got picked up by the Airport Shuttle Bus, there were hugs and tears all over the place. The bus driver was very sweet and his comment "Don't cry cause it's over, smile cause it happened" actually really helped.

I had a wonderful time visiting with my daughter and grandchildren while hubby was away working. We played, watched The Fairies several times with Isla loving Buttercup's swim cossy and Mia wanted Rhapsody's cossy. So needless to say, we had a trip to Spotlight to chose fabric. Let me give you a little advice, NEVER ask a 3 year old to choose fabric. Little Mia loved anything that sparkled, any bright colour and anything we didn't choose. LOL We finally agreed that both girls were happy with Buttercup's outfit.

Of cause there was plenty of Craft Time. I took my Cuttlebug with me and a few templates, lots of sparkling stuff, papers, glues, fimo etc. We had a lovely time turning paper into masterpieces.

Isla loves any kind of craft and since she was tiny could handle things like glue, stickers and sticky tape extremely well. She loved making the butterflies and when I showed her how to roll up a triangle to form the body, she thought it was cool.

Mia gets so excited when there is any mention of craft and when her big sister is there, well, it's double the fun. Like most 3 year olds, she can't wait to get things done and at times I found it hard to keep up with her. It was hard to wait for the glue to dry or the flowers to be embossed but in the end, Mia was very happy with her page.

We also had time to make these cute little purses that I found on Mel Stampz where you can find oodles and oodles of free templates.

and these cup cake boxes

On the last day, we were supposed to have a play with fimo but that was the afternoon that daddy came home. He had been away for a couple of weeks and even though he phoned every day, there was nothing like having daddy home. Way too much excitement that day.

Then there was Hamish. If ever there was a cutest, cuddliest, gorgeous, sweetest little baby ever, it has to be him (Do I sound like a gloating grammy). Since the first moment I walked through the door, this special little person weaved his magic and totally melted my heart.

Now I must not forget my daughter Cathie. We finally managed to have that long promised coffee together......actually we had several, to make up for lost time.
