Monday happy things – Week 73

Yay, we made it to half term! I’m writing my weekly post about the things that have made me happy before I get back to the important task of enjoying being with the kids.

I stitched a cute little mini quilt inspired by love hearts. I totally meant to hand stitch some messages on each one but didn’t have time. I gave my children boxes of Love Hearts yesterday and was surprised by the modern sayings on them. I think I prefer the ones I grew up with.

Last week I had the termly Parents’ Evening for both children. I’m lucky that so far my children seem to be enjoying school and both got great reports.

My mum has been visiting and for some reason her visits always inspire me to make more than usual. With her around I made a Star Wars blanket, Star Wars bean bag cover and Star Wars lampshade for my son who turns 6 next month. I also covered the seat pad of the vintage Lloyd Loom chair which sits in my daughters bedroom.

I’ve spent lots of time crafting with the children too. We’ve made crafts for Valentine’s Day, St Patrick’s Day and Easter and my head feels all over the place. Fortunately we’re away over half term and our craft supplies are packed away at home. For once I need a few days off.

I received Lego for Valentine’s Day. This was a first but I was happy to open Lego set 75099 Rey’s Speeder.
