Forgotten Piccies!

I'm going to be honest - my new fad is Facebook, and it takes me away from doing my blog! To such an extent I've forgotten to upload piccies of my son on his first day of school - they are a bit out of date now - well 6 weeks old, but so what! Isn't he smart, and handsome of course! Ignore me, I've put that one on to show how tall he is now. Can you tell I'm proud? How upset would he be by all this! Mortified!! You should have seen the emoticons he sent when I put them up on Fb!! If you look closely at his tie, you'll see he is being very patriotic to his adopted home city, it has the lily all over it!

Fairy frocks and Autumn

I'm stalling - I have a fairy frock to make before the St.James' Halloween party next week. Just in case you are wondering - it's for Antonia!

It should be easy, but I've been getting bad headaches this last week and I'm really not in the mood! I think the headaches are because my shoulders and neck feel really stiff - don't know why, could be I've been carrying heavier bags than usual. I've started using a small local supermarket to shop. I've used it in the past but it was expensive, but now Panorama have taken it over so the choice is better and the prices have fallen. It's also really close to my house. I take a big hessian bag with me and fill it. That doesn't stop it getting heavy though. As soon as any drinks go in I may as well stop! But I got enough to day for near enough the week (for two of us) and it came to €25, so a pretty good shop I think!

Any way I have a bag of net, chiffon and satin waiting for me, so I should go. But before I do, just to say Autumn is beautiful here at the moment. We went into the bigger garden for the first time in several months to collect pine cones - I use them as fire lighters! Coming back we passed a horse chestnut tree. As the garden is private the floor was littered with conkers! It was a dream come true. We now have lots of leaves, pine cones and a big bowl full of pretty brown conkers. Combined with the mild weather, it couldn't be a better season at the moment!

When the frock is done I'll post piccies over on Antonia's blog!!
