Foggy and Rainy and Spikey Tree

That title describes what P saw out of the window one February morning.

February usually my most depressing month has actually turned out to be quite bright for 2015 and the dark gloom that descends hasn't as much yet.

As usual I don't know what the date is so I have no idea how long we have until March but everyday should be loved.

This post is a catch up with pictures.

This is Bear, T's most treasured possession, he has a new microwave friend called Joe I think I found them reading for a couple of days at the top of the stairs.
Joe doesn't get much action because we don't have a microwave but he is hanging out with Bear everyday.

I was 41 on the 4th. G bought me these cakes and some other really nice stuff.

In the evening I made a craft kit for a children's play group I am helping out at. Raining outside sitting and crafting in the quiet sheer bliss before leaving the house for dinner because it is good for the children to see you celebrate your birthday even though you all would rather stay in!

This is a gift from my mum. I would never buy metallic tape, can you even buy metallic tape now it isn't the 80's. This roll must be from when I was a tween. I held this little package for an hour the tape is so cool.
It's late night Christmas wrapping, it's fiddling trying to find the end, it shines in your eyes when you are looking in the bag of wrapping paper looking for the sellotape trying to ignore it because if you take it out then you'll need to find the scissors to cut it. And it goes with nothing so perfectly.

We got new phone's the camera on the 6 is incredible.

I am even considering using the flash.

P had some firsts this month.
She looked beyond cute in the helmet and harness, I can't tell you I could have smothered her but lardy arse mother would have never got both feet off the floor to catch her she was so fast.

She also managed her first decent platt. I don't mean that she put it in herself just that her hair is finally long enough.

And I bought comfortable boots from ZARA
I really rather like their printed leather espadrille but I might look like I have bear cub feet.

Roll on March. It is really just what we all need just keep those bright mornings and afternoons peeking through.

Lets Try Sherbert Sweets!

Bennion with 3n's is a friend of ours.
He used to be an Ice Lord in Dr. Who and had a part in Zed Cars so that gives you a time line.
This year he bought sweets for the girls Christmas presents. A bag each, wrapped in white baking paper with a square of silver foil, probably from a chocolate bar and then tied with string.

Let me tell you when I held them in my lap I nearly cried at how simple the idea was and how
Ballet Shoes Christmas they felt.

One of the bags had fruit sherberts in them.

They tried all flavours, jury is still out.
T received chocolate eclairs and handed them to guests because although she likes them, there are so many in a bag she feels that she won't ever get through them.

Neither of them like Liquorice Allsorts. I've told them it may be some years before that happens.

Anyway, it was a funny five minutes.
