Happy Wednesday to you all. This is the last Wednesday of the school holidays here which means that this is my last precious day just with my son, while my girl has her last day at nursery. It's such a rarity to spend time with just him and me and I have no idea how we will ever manage it again, aside from him being off school poorly (very rare) while she is at preschool.
Today we will be doing some sewing as he has just discovered those pre-hole-punched sewing kits. We will also be making a little Smash book type thing for him to record his lessons for September as he is going to be joining in with me for Learn Something New Everyday. I thought it would be a good way to encourage him to write outside of school as he really needs the practise. He reads beautifully, is okay at mental maths, has a great vocabulary and a wonderful imagination but anything involving using a pen / pencil and everything goes wrong - it's a bit like his brain and his hand are not connected!
I did have a clear up last week after we had both done some crafting and I sorted out my supplies for LSNED and put them in the box on the left there. The pockets contain pieces of punched owl (we would like to confirm that no owls were harmed in the making of this blog post).
The owls will be used as date markers / journalling tags and I'm sure Louis will want to make some of these too for his own book. Aren't they cute?!
If you stopped by last week then you will know about the mystery of the hospital tags. Well I solved that by asking a lovely friend who was also a stand-by independent midwife for me at the time and she said NHS midwives issues them in case the baby needs to be admitted at all. I did wonder if that was the case as they hadn't been worn, just filled in. Still no idea why they were in the car 3 years later though!
Well that's my desk revealed for the week, how about you? Care to share your crafting space? Link up with the Queen of the Desks Miss Julia and let other creative types have a nosy too.
Bye for now
