feeling blah

Look at those beauties, been missing blogging about the darlings.
I've been feeling ambivalent about the blog recently - it caused some minor controversy (which I can't be arsed going into), however I've decided to reclaim it as MINES. I love writing about what we've been up to, it is so precious to me - being able to keep a record of and for the kids.
Also it is getting to that time of year again - our anniversary time, 4 of us in a row - how harsh is that. So grateful we found one another in our pain and we can help ease it, specially as the years roll on and people start to expect you to roll on too I guess. Not so, never - everyday I think of my boy, so if I can allow myself a few days of Alfie indulgence I will, I feel I earn it by being so strong and capable the rest of the year. This year we are going to a bday party for 3 wee ones on the day of Alfie's birth, however it is a sands mums babies party,  so what better company could I be in.

I've been keeping busy with the sewing, the above are my 1st attempt at a pair of wee ones slippers. I was quite happy with them, My friend Viv is due her 1st baby in a few weeks and I took these as a wee gift to the baby shower.
I've also been busy doing stuff for the kids ans socks for pugs but need to get organised and take photos.

a day of 1sts

Archie's first day at playgroup.....he loved it. Was up at 6.30am asking 'i go playgroup mummy', no bad considering he's had a yucky cold and been wabbit. He ran in and didn't look back. He stood up when his name was called for register and he gave his news 'mummy go coffee' - he got a clap and was apparently very proud of himself.

Sadie and I had 2 hours to ourselves, so what else ca a girl do but shop! Sadie got her 1st real shoes, they are called Ida Delilah, how cute are they???? Just chuffed we didn't have to go for pink. Not sure if the photo shows it well enough, but they are a lovely strong purple colour.

When we finished shopping we went to pick doodle up, I sneaked a look through the window, he was happily putting his 'red pinny' for painting away. He came to meet us in the cafe, covered in blue paint - apparently Adele had to chase him round the room, she said he was loving it and you'd never know it was his 1st day.....not sure whether i should be pleased about him more than happily trotting off with out me or not. It was lovely to shop without being shouted at, and to have some lovely girls time with Sadie x
