Its Show Time

On the weekend the show came to town.

I haven’t been in years and I wasn’t planning on going this year as my little man is only 2.5 yrs and well to be honest I’m not keen on the huge crowds and loud music and I find it quite stressful  in those places  with my little man being so active.

But I agreed to go. Here are some pictures from our first time at the local show……  



This is my little man with his dada playing the clowns for the first time.

He also went on the big blow up Lightning McQueen slide, had a pony ride and went in the Mirrored maze. 

Then we went off to find the show bags and got a Wall-e show bag.

By the time we had finished all that it was time for the fire works

After jumping a few times as the loud noise scared him my little man enjoyed the pretty colors of the display


I will never forget the look on his face, It was just priceless :)

We then went home I was dirty, tired, and could hardly breathe for the dust but I must admit I did have a little fun.



Nappy making

Thursday 30th October.

Today I went to a special BaBs meeting where we had a nappy making workshop.

The workshop was run by Peep-O, who is one of the local mums.

there was 6 of us all first time nappy makers.

I must say it was harder than what I thought it would be.

I hope to do more so I will get better, eventually :)

I have a wonderful old sewing machine that use to belong to my mum but while I love it to death, it just kept jamming on me, right in the middle of sewing.

Aghh so frustrating

I also have an overlocker but no idea on how to re thread it and it seems to be quite a time consuming task that I have started but am yet to finish.

As I was on a time limit mine is still a work in progress but you can get the idea.
