the middle of february

15 February 2015

Seeing as the whole internet world is saturated in romantic nonsense at the moment, I thought I might as well join in! My mister found me some lovely things when he was last in London, whilst all I could muster was a card. Oh dear : /

As I may have mentioned before, I'm really busy with work at the moment and maybe that doesn't come across on my blog which usually focuses on all the jollities of homelife ; )

Behind the scenes I am always panicking about something work related that I have to sort out and I am turning around orders and getting them to customers before their deadlines every week. I think all of this plus the daily boring chores of maintaining housely duties, have left me feeling a bit overwhelmed in the last few months.

Anyhows, my mister has a trip away planned soon to redecorate the Tokyo shop so my blog may have a little break during this time whilst I keep all the plates spinning!

I am also planning to design a new jewellery collection and sculpt them from wax for casting (a bit like this) within the next week or two, so I'm pretty excited about this (if I can get the time to do it!) and I'll look forward to showing you what I managed to come up with very soon.

But for now, here are some photos from our slightly chaotic, mid-February days...

We made Valentines cards for Nao (her pops, my mister) with our hand prints ( I think I found this idea on Pinterest but I don't know who was originally responsible?)

Our nipper loves drawing around her hands and she helped cut them out, she's pretty good with scissors surprisingly!
Then she painted them with glue and paint mixture and then dusted them in glitter (every project we do has to involve glitter!?).

We also decided to rummage in the recycling box and think of things we could make out of them. She decided on spaceship, I guess because she is soooooo into Buzz Lightyear and all things Galactic!!

We chopped up some sweet wrappers (that I'd saved from 2 xmas's ago!?) and used it as the rocket booster. Egg box no its made from a terillium-carbonic alloy.

When we are indoors, our littlun basically jumps on the sofa and runs the whole length of the house, all day.
I found some tiny violets growing in our lawn, which gave me infinite joy...

and we've been going for walks in her new-found fondness of the buggy (which she previously hated from birth!). I have now invested in a better off-road buggy so I'm looking forward to more long walks in the countryside. (sunrise photos by my mister btw)

So I guess I'll be back at my blog in March sometime, spring will be well and truly on its way then!!
