I was able to take this candid shot of DS at teatime while he was watching his daddy try out the new Dyson on the stairs. DS was entertained for 10 minutes and I got a job done for me - bit of a result!
After seeing a bubble maker in action earlier this week, we got one for DS. Initially he didn't really take any notice of it but yesterday it caught his imagination and he had fun trying to capture the bubbles before they popped. The most simple of toys seem to be providing the most fun!
I finished the DLO last night and am pleased with how it turned out. Thanks to BF & her family for making the day more fun & interesting!

... tomorrow is Scrap Your Day (number 3 of 12). Hopefully it will be extra fun because of BF & the children.
Yesterday afternoon DS went to sleep in the car on the way to a BBQ in Oxford without the help of his soother so I took this window of opportunity to help him go Cold Turkey!! His 2 soothers have been removed from view and although he was awake in the early hours for an … Continue reading So Long, Sucker!
BF and her 2 children arrived today to stay with us for a week, which is really fab and I've been looking forward to it for ages! BF's DS is 2 tomorrow, which I can hardly believe! Both of the children are so gorgeous!
