Playing and Bunting...



We had a lovely morning with my mum this morning. We took my kids and my sister's daughter to Heathcote Park, South of the River. It's a gorgeous playground set up very high that overlooks the river. After the kids had a play, we walked down to the rivers edge to collect shells and inspect jellyfish (mostly washed up ones). Then we had an icecream and headed home. Silly me forgot my camera, so all the photos are on mum's camera. It was a great morning and the best part is, once you get home the kids are usually happy to amuse themselves for a while.

I've been promising to make some bunting for my friend's two little girls for a while now. But the thought of cutting out all those triangles was putting me off. Soooooooooooo, yesterday afternoon, in between dinner preparations, I decided to make a start on it. I had all the triangles cut out within the hour. Then after dinner, Glenn took the kids across the road to the park to play cricket, so I was able to sew the bunting together (that took about half an hour all up). And soooooooooooo, 'Tah Dah'....we now have finished bunting. Sometimes I don't know why I spend so much time procrastinating about things. Once you get started, it's usually not as bad/difficult/time consuming as you think.....USUALLY!!! The bunting photos are not the best....it's very tricky to photograph (and I'm a BAD photographer). But I think you can get the idea.

Hope you're having a happy day.
