Happy Daddys' Day Dad!!

So Georgia nags me all week....."Mum can you help me to make something for Dad.?"...."I'm working all week Georgia it will have to be on Saturday afternoon when I wake up!" I said....

7am Saturday morning......me migraine very tired...Georgia "Mum you promised we could make something today" ...sigh....sinking heart.........


Completely non functioning brain suddenly has a brain wave!! 5 minutes later...Georgia is taught how to ink and paint......eg: "Mum shout me when you have finished peeling the cardboard that bits boring and Hannah Montana is on telly!!"

So I get the kids to pose for a new photo in their PJ's at about 7:30am....the last one like this was at Christmas 6 months ago!! I still can't believe how quickly time flies when you have a baby!!

By the time Dad woke up it was prepped and glued and nearly finished.....Daughter happy Mummy no longer has a sinking heart.....job done!!

Happy Fathers Day Mark, Peter and David
From Georgia and Ben xxx

How do you do it, you always pull the hat out of the bag for others. You're so thoughtful.

Hello stranger,
Man I had some reading to do. 16 posts.....you have made me regret not catching up sooner. I have just popped over from Helena's blog and she had 16 posts too. I am all blogged out!!!
I just want to tell you that I totally adored your canvas you did, it is soooo gorgeous. Of course the Fathers Day wallhanging is just delish too! I didnt even think of doing anything like that for Steve. He just got a grumpy, bad tempered and over tired but would not sleep baby all day!
I too loved Kirsties homemade house, some of her ideas were a little out there for me but on the whole I loved it. I went to hemswell car boot the other week and got some pretties including a small wooden spice shelf which needs a vintage touch. I see vintage style wallpaper, duck egg blue paint and lace. Just need a spare moment to play about.
Hope you are well Ruth, everything reads well so I am guessing you are.
Well mush dash I have other blogs to read through......I think I will be here all night.
