Show and tell....

 I don't remember show and tell at school
Back in my school days I don't remember there being very much of a cross over between home life and school life, unlike today where parents are expected to attend workshops and go on welly walks...

But I have snapped some pictures this morning and apologies for the bad lighting but I think someone up there forgot to put some money in the meter as the sun doesn't seem to be able to shine today! ;D

 a lap sized blanket... finally finished!


 My love of wall vases shared....


 
 Old enamel ware looks perfect with spring colour...



 Eggs, Birds and Mums Sylvac vase...


 Valentines gifts from wonderful blog friends, I love my new bunny and the bunting is perfect 

 Thank you Pat  xxx



So many treats and goodies, Haribo, chocolate, biscuits, cookie cutters and ribbon,
a beautiful hand stitched felt heart... an e-card from Canada too!
Jim, Lisa, Clare, Pat and Nina you are all so very kind....




and I thank you all so much, your kindness has jolted my man from his stupor and I ... wait for it!
received a card and gifts.... yes I really did get a card! ;D

I cooked a simple meal of Pork steaks, new potatoes and Cauliflower cheese... all our favourites and it tasted amazing... I bought locally produced Cherry wine and it was beautiful... we chatted and laughed and it was wonderful... 


Its a little rainy today... and I am going on a welly walk with Daniel and his class mates tomorrow... there are quite a few parents going so I am looking forward to a morning having some fun in the woods practising the children's super powers as they are designing Super hero's and learning about make believe and using there imaginations! which Daniel has no difficulties in doing! ;D

Fingers crossed the sun shines for us tomorrow! 

Love and hugs to you all!
Take care
Alex

That blanket is utterly gorgeous, you clever, clever girl.

And such lovely gifts. I really like that bunting. I've been thinking of making some bunting myself. Did the sender make it? If not i may steal that idea.
