When I get home…

Here comes the sun.

I look back on these posts in the winter with longing. Bonnie just lives the moment, happy in the sun.

Rio.

This is Rio, my kid’s school mascot. Rio is a blue raven and is teaching the school kids about their rights as children.
I promised Rio he could make an appearance on Doodlemum as he has told me how well travelled he is!

Grassy.

Nothing like a play in the park after school.

Blanket.

Crocheted by Grandma, this is blanket. It is Bonnie’s special thing.
Blanket gets arranged lovingly around her crate by Bonnie to make a handy pillow, (yes my dog likes a pillow).
Blanket is always brought out when we return home to great us.
Blanket smells, of dog.
But blanket is loved.

Good morning rain.

What’s it like to run up and down the garden in your pyjamas Mammy?

Wet!

Expletives.

I bumped my arm today and it really hurt.
You’re lined up at the bottom of the stairs, aiming for the top step, teddy in hand and the throw has already been made in your head.
You take aim.
You hit the bottom banister as hard as you can with your forearm.
Oh……

Toothy peg…

…is still here! Our lovely dentist says it’s very nearly out anyway and wants Evie to be the one to pull it out. She’s been set very important, specific wobbling exercises. toothy peg 2

Sewing…part two.

Oh for pity’s sake I sewed the flippin’ badges on the back of the sash!
Off they come…

Sewing.

Evie is now a Brownie and I’ve just sown on her first few badges tonight. I’d like to say that my passion for creating things extends into needle and thread.
It doesn’t.
I have a very sore thumb to prove it but I will have one happy Brownie in the morning.
