two fat ladies

you, and your mam...
i've always enjoyed this manc scally version of the traditional bingo call. woke up to find i'd had my 88th sale on folksy, thanks everyone. i love palindromic numbers!

i just sustained a mum injury while putting on my slippers (actually a pair of ugg boots), spiked my toe on the herd of plastic farm animals which, unbeknownst to me, were secreted inside. ouch.

mum tip #4

i love the idea of documenting the kiddos' growing up, weekly photos next to a metre rule, height charts, monthly foot prints etc but i never seem to be able to remember to do the necessary regular photographing/measuring/printing. another problem is what to do with and where to store the resulting items. so now, when i give a book to m or other family members i include o-o's (and now wee baby j's) prints next to my written dedication in the front.

happy belated birthday love to sweet m who's birthday falls on the same day as wee baby j's half year birthday. we gave him the history of the world in one hundred objects.

way-hey now available in grey!

i've managed to take a few photos of the new background colour option for the shipping forecast and cuppa screen print. it's a true grey, i'm calling it 'dark clouds grey'. available here and here. please specify your colour preference when ordering.

sinister thoughts

more conversations with the kiddo here.

shipping forecast and cuppa third edition

i've finally finished the third edition of the shipping forecast and cuppa print. the perfect christmas gift for a tea enthusiast or radio 4 aficionado. I've misplaced the camera, the listing photos are of the second edition. i have two background colour choices now. 'stormy seas' grey-blue (v. similar to the colour shown in the photos) or a true grey. available here and here.

the lollipop guild

the wizard of oz is o-o's new favourite film. the lollipop guild song is an earworm, that's for sure. i have to sing it for him before he goes to sleep.

wee baby j is six months old today, his half birthday. he's started eating solids and spends many happy minutes trying to wrestle rice cakes and such into his mouth. here he is enjoying some broccoli. we love him very much and are so happy he's ours to keep. 

sorry i've been away from the blog for ages. we went up to manchester for half term and while we were there wee j was admitted to hospital suffering from bronchiolitis, very scary and sad to see him so poorly. wee j seems to have inherited my grandpa's penchant for pretty lady nurses, we knew he was on the mend when he started charming them all with his gummy smiles. the staff at the royal manchester children's hospital did an amazing job of caring for wee j (and me and m!) and we are really grateful to them all. the NHS really is aces.
