Chris' mum also bought me this giraffe and spot fabric from Sprout Design which I'm having trouble finding a project for. Cute but very orange. I was thinking about making a pencil case. Suggestions? Suggestions for how to tone it down also welcome!

Turns out my little girl was tripped over by one of the other kids. 'It wasn't an accident, mummy' she tells me, 'it was mean.' She also tells me she tried to make friends with two twin girls and a boy we vaguely know from the park and that they didn't want to be her friend. All this of course makes me so so sad. Day 2 of kindy and she's already having to endure schoolyard politics. I thought at that age if you like Peppa Pig and they like Peppa Pig you were automatically friends.
On the up side, she painted this hilarious picture of her baby brother and did some beading which the kindy teacher photocopied (I think to hang on the kindy walls and send to mensa).
It's no surprise she's the not-popular-but-smart kid in the class since that was the burden both myself and her dad carried through our school years.
Anyway, I cheered her up with some scones and cuddles and we're hoping for a better week next week. It takes time to make friends, you know.

Anyway, my blog-stalking really paid off this time. He is just perfectly made and wonderfully crafted. Amy is very talented indeed. The only problem is that he's gender neutral so I'm forced to rotate him between bedrooms depending on who is my favourite child that day.
Oh, and by the way I still haven't had anyone sign up for my Pay It Forward and I'd still like to participate so here are the rules:I will make a handmade gift for the first 3 interested people who comment on this post and I have 365 days to do it in....You must have a blog to join in and be willing to do the same for three other people
I will change the rules and 'pay it back' to Amy if no one signs up.

We also managed to fit in some stair practice and Rory made it very clear that even though I can walk now Mum, your hip is still my preferred mode of transport.
