Sunday Sevens #7

I cant believe it is Week 7 of Sunday Sevens, time is absolutely flying by at the moment.

#1 Lego

Our house is full of lego and everytime I tread on a piece of lego in the night I always say NO MORE! But it is a fab toy and it’s better than being on the xbox all the while, so this week when Smyths had their 20% off for one day only; we were there so littlest boy could spend the rest of his birthday money on another huge set (which he built himself!).

#2 Another Card

A thank you card for the placement I have been at for the last 12 weeks. I’ve waited and waited for my sentiment dies, but I got an email today to say they aren’t in stock anymore! Luckily I have lots of sentiment stamps.

#3 Pretty flowers

I had these pretty flowers and card from the placement I have been at.

#4 Summer Evenings

Well, summer returned and I had a lovely date night with Mr W on Friday night, it was so nice to be able to sit outside in the beer garden, a nice start to the bank holiday weekend.

#5 Curry

Date night ended in a fab curry, the best butter chicken I have ever had, calories don’t count on date night!

#6 A-Z

I am a little bit obsessive about the dvd storage in our house, they are a-z in boxes (both sides of the chimney!). Not accessible to the boys though, so this week I had to give in and let them put the discs in a big folder (and they’re not in order!!!) Its going to take some coming to terms with.

#7 finished!

Finally, today I have finished my craft book cover! I’m so pleased with it. It’s the book where I plan all my craft projects so I wanted it to be bright! Hopefully if I get chance I’ll do a post on how it came together.

News from the Coop: All Change!

Well today I purchased a new coop having only had the existing one 2 weeks!

I all honesty the one I have bought today wasnt exactly spur of the moment…we have been disappointed with the original one since it arrived and only kept it as the hens were due the next day and there was no time to change it. It would be perfect for two hens but we have four and want two more so it’s just not a long term option for us really.

So this is what we got:

Yes its a place house but it was on offer and we have a plan to adapt it. Unfortunately due to problems in the store which took an eternity to sort out, we had no time to get our other items: 4 slabs, anti weed membrane, forest bark, timber for perches and door and 3 cans of woodstain!! Quite annoying as we both finished work early to get all this done in one go!

Oh well! At least now I can sit and have a good think about woodstain colours, I cannot believe there is so much choice. I plan to do the shed/coop/run all matching colours, either blue and cream or green and light purple I think.

We only just got home in time to get the boys from the childminder, A was so excited as he had been on his first school trip!! He is only 3 and spent a full day at a farm and now wants a goat and a peacock 🙂 We will have to add them to the list forif we ever get our dream house in the countryside. He has gone to bed with a selection of their farmyard animals which I knitted for J’s 3rd birthday. Its nice to see them still playing with them after 3 yrs, especially as they took so long to make (Alan Dart pattern).
