A couple of weeks into the new year and I still find myself on a bit of a go slow. Just quiet day to day routine with some nice creative slots here and there.
It’s great having a daughter old enough to treat you out to coffee…
And a boy to make you laugh.
The boys in Josh’s school, when the fruit is satsumas, save a section for the afternoon lesson and see who can make it last the longest. When asked what do you with it when you have to speak to the teacher he said ‘put it here’…
We went to see my dear old Grandad at the weekend. Hubby was putting up some extra rails on the stairs. He is nearly 94 and still manages on his own, cooking his own meals and just having help with his cleaning and garden. Some of the grandchildren take it in turns to do the cleaning and my Mum helps with other bits and does the garden. He has 16 grandchildren and 49 great grandchildren with another on the way. Most of us are fairly local and so are able to pop and see him which he loves. There are always sweets and biscuits in the cupboard for the children!
There are so many nik-naks in his house, mostly gifts from grandchildren over the years and a whole long wall of photos. (I couldn’t fit them all in!)
We are just so blessed to still have him with us.
We have finally had a little sun which Abz tried to catch a little of while she read a book, all bundled up in the garden.
I’ve been enjoying some chai latte my Aunty brought when they came to tea and I absolutely love it! A lovely alternative to hot chocolate.
Abi put fruit teas on her list and got this lovely tin with some great flavours in, she usually asks me to surprise her if I’m making her a drink, so I get to pick out what I fancy trying a sip of!
So far our favourite is peach and ginger which surprised us as neither of us are great fans of ginger drinks.
Josh is drinking herbal tea!! He is really having trouble getting to sleep at night and this seems to be helping.
Are you a traditional tea and coffee drinker or do you like to experiment with flavours?
I have some crafty bits to show you soon but for now it’s goodbye so…
Happy Crafting and have a great creative week.
