today i have been making...

Had a pretty productive day so thought I'd share it straight away....

Peg dolls for the pre school table at the church fair this weekend

Possible image for pre school christmas card ( I actually did this a few days ago)

And an oil pastel and collage illustration that has been floating around in my head for a few weeks.

There are times when having four small ish children wears me out, sometimes I get frustrated, sometimes I worry, sometimes I am bored... and then sometimes I am reminded that having four children is just perfect. You see you need four for a decent game of piggy back wars....

The past couple of weeks have been brilliant. Things seem back on a more even keel, the children seem settled and happy (obviously the odd scrap every now and then, but..), Rog is around a bit more and we've had some great nights with friends, I feel on top of chores and work and we've even started the ball rolling getting the roof fixed! 

This is always my favourite time of year, the colours and the light and the anticipation of hunkering down for winter. I'm hoping to do some creating later in the week there's a few ideas bubbling away that I'm keen to explore.

Baking: bread rolls

Knitting: unsuccessfully trying to get the size right for Roger's slippers, this one is the right length but wide enough for 2 or 3 feet!!

Reading: having another go at Wolf Hall, already slightly loosing track due to falling asleep, book in hand...
