A Hot Busy Day

The girls were back at school today so Nathaniel and I can now return to our manic schedule.

We did the supermarket shop this morning, came home (via the stationers for tags, explain later) prepared all the veggies for tea, Nathaniel settled down with a banana and some juice and I knocked out a few girlie t-shirts before lunch;

Made us both a sandwich and had a little snuggle before returning to the sewing machine and making some smocked dresses for the fair and some shorts and matching t-shirt for my baby boy;

Nathaniel is very little and skinny (don't know where he gets it from) and when I dug out the summer wardrobe for him it just looked ridiculous. 18-23 or 2-3 are massive, his tiny shoulders disappear in t-shirt and shirts. And don't get me started on the shorts!! So I managed to find some things from last summer but the shorts are great round the waist but too short from crotch to waist :-( no boy wants his bits squashed up when it's hot and sweaty!

I'm quite pleased with how they turned out and am very glad I bought the car fabric when I spotted it on ebay ages ago. I also have a piece of nascar fabric in blue so there may be more summer ensembles for my little man.

Hopefully I'll get some pictures of him in them tomorrow, before the sun disappears. Apparently it'll all be cold and grey again by wednesday, makes me very sad.

Then we hot footed it to the centre where Nathaniel went to play in the creche and I went to drink tea and talk about sex (again)!!
