Catching up and a Twisted Sketch
I am slowly catching back up with everything. I've done no blog reading for a while and still have emails to respond to, but I've managed to sort out something dodgy going on with my bank account today. Hopefully (fingers tightly crossed) I will see the money back again by the end of today.
Today sees a new Twisted Sketch. Visit here to view Sketch number #66 and see what this weeks twist is. The sneak of my LO is above. I managed to use odds and ends for this LO. A sassafras strip, mists, JB note paper, couple of primas. Bits and pieces.
Here is my LO from a couple of weeks ago.
It's mainly Studio Calico bits with a few extra pieces added and lots of hand stitching.
Do you ever feel that sometimes you go through life battle after battle. Just sorted (hopefully ) the bank problem today and now on to the next one.
One day back at school and I have a complaint already.
Now I totally agree with what Jamie Oliver is doing with regards to sorting out school dinners. I love Jamie to bits and use his cook books loads. I love cooking and baking and feel very proud of the meals I provide for my family. Everything is from scratch, no jars, no packets. My kids have cereals and fruit for breakfast, I then give them something for their mid morning break. If I haven't made fresh bread or something like breakfast muffins then I give them cheese and crackers, breadsticks, pitta bread, that kind of thing and then I always make them a good lunch to take too. I like them to have carbs mid morning.
Our Junior school have now decided to only allow fruit and veg at breaktime.
I feel so annoyed. I know this is all aimed at those that are over weight and don't have a good diet, but what about the likes of us with very small under weight kids that do have a good diet. I just feel Louis really needs as much as I can get into him, another piece of fruit is not going to benifit him at all. He's 8 1/2 and needing age 5 school trousers. He's such a skinny little thing.
So he got told off yesterday and wasn't allowed his cheese and crackers that I gave him.
I understand them not allowing crisps, biscuits etc... but this is just silly.
I'll stand down from my soapbox now and go and collect my parcel from the post office that I missed yesterday. I'm hoping it's my Cocoa Daisy kit.
Have a good day x
