Today's prompt for HSMS is jug... we only have one jug in our space, and it is this one we use for juice. I t holds the 8 glasses your are supposed to drink in a day to stay hydrated, and I fill it to try and make myself drink enough... never seems to work though. If I did drink that much I would be constantly up and down the stairs to the loo!!!!
Yesterday I made a little altered clipboard using the September goodies from Scrapfairies. It is going to hang in our kitchen so we can write things to go on the shopping list... this will stop any of the 'why didn't you get such and such?'.... er because I am not psychic and didn't know that you had ruin out of shaving gel/branston pickle/sandwich bags!!!!

Well the obvious choice in this house would be the chewed bathroom sponge, or the novelty sponge cakes made for Oliver... but as I have used these for past prompts I went for the sponge scourers from the kitchen. You know the ones, the own brand cheapies... 100 for 10p!!!
College again tonight, so I have to try and get as much done today as possible. Wonder if both boys will sleep at the same time to make my life a little easier.... I very much doubt it...LOL!!!

HSMS ~ self portrait Saturday
Sorry guys but it's that time of the week again... here's a piccie of me taken this afternoon after I got back from the crop... looking tired and a bit rough, which is why I am trying to hide behind my fringe...LOL!!!

To look fixedly or vacantly at someone or something. Find ' stare' in your space today.
This wooden carving sits on my shelf staring in the direction of the door. Rob hates her as he says she stares at him and he wants to get rid of her. I love her so she is staying, end of. I'll tell you a secret now, she was a bought for me by my first love on a romantic weekend away, so she also has happy memories associated with her. Rob of course does not know her history... good job really as I think her days would definitely be numbered...LOL!!!
What a poo pants day we are having in Manchester... rainy and miserable. I was hoping to get some craft sorting done for tomorrows crop whilst Niblet is asleep, but decided to make rock buns for Rob instead. He likes something sweet at night time, and as sweet and lovely as I am, I provide him with baked goodies to keep him happy:)
Be back later:)

Something characterised by the peculiar or unexpected. Find something 'quirky' today in your space.
A friend bought me this nuts and bolts teacher after I passed my PGCE. Although they are quite common nowadays 10 years ago they were very unusual and quirky. She sits on my top shelf getting dusty, poor thing, must move her to some where she can be seen a bit more... Rob doesn't like her and Oliver thinks her boobs are really funny...LOL!!!
Last night was the first night of my pre registration childminding course... I hav a serious amount of work to do in the next few weeks, but on the whole I came out feeling very positive and raring to get started. Tonight I will start writing up my policies and procedures to go in my portfolio... I don't know eh, I just can't seem to escape Ofsted inspectors...LOL!!!

OK so here is my submission for round 5 of the masterchef competition (slide show above this post). We were asked to make an 'inspirational' mini book... not sure if it is inspirational but I am happy with it, and at least I have a record of our 4 visits to Sundown Adventure Land.
Tonight I start the college course to become a registered childminder. I am really looking forward to it, although don't Tameside know Tuesday night is CSI night and I will miss the start!!!
I have finished the mini book at long last!!! I am so fed up with it now, I can't wait to get some LOs done. When Reuben and Harry go to sleep I will take pics to upload and email off.... hooorah!!!

&edited in case of letterboxes*
Anyway, this little fella kept us entertained exploring the top of Oliver's sit in car. The pictures I got aren't in as sharp a focus as I would have liked but he just wouldn't keep still... and the wind kept blowing his feelers about!
We had a good time at the party yesterday... and guess whose child cried the most? In fact whose child was the only child to cry? Yep, mine!!! such and such did this, such and such did that... like he is the most perfectly well behaved child ever. Boys eh? they start being mardy men very young...LOL!!!
Last night I made real progress with the mini book, it is almost finished... although I had to stop once the alcohol had kicked in, me drink and a craft knife is not a good combination! I am going to try really hard to complete tonight so that I can upload pics and get on with some LOs.
I have drawn a template out to make a doodlebug style chipboard house. Not sure if I am actually breaking the law by breaching some kind of copyright, but if it is for my own use then I can't be doing much wrong, right? I want to have one on my shelf in the living room, and think I am going to decorate one for friends who have just moved in at the bottom of the garden... not literally in our garden as that would just be silly, but their house backs on to ours.
Right a niblet is a squealing which means it is time for dinner!!! be back soon with more mini book pics... hopefully!!!

Have a great day:)

An instrument for picking up small objects. Find tweezers in your space today.
My very old tweezers, they look a bit worse for wear but they are great for getting stray eyebrows!!! It seems every year I get a new set of tweezers from somebody in a stocking filler gift, but none are as good as this pair.
I went out last night with the girlies and had a great time. We went to a gorgeous restaurant and ended up being turfed out at 11:35pm, so didn't get home until 12:15... we had all told our hubbies that we wouldn't be late, but you know what girls are like once they get chatting...LOL! A good time was had by all, but today I am soooooo tired. Wonder if I can have a power nap the same time as Harry....

Be back later with another sneaky peaky of my decorated front cover.... yes that is as far as i've got...LOL!!!

AKA: Pucker up, swap spit, snog, tonsil tickling (tee hee).A show of affection by means of mouth to mouth contact. Go on, give us a kiss!
The postman came a knocking this morning, well ringing to be precise, with a box full of yummy goodies from Sam at Scrapfairies. This girl has such good taste when buying for the shop... everything is just so gorgeous, I am so excited to get playing...
Last night was spent sewing name tags into PE kit, more polo shirts and taking more trouser hems up. So no fun stuff for me, although CSI NY was a good one and I hadn't seen it before. Tonight I am going to get cracking on decorating my mini book, but here is a sneaky of it in it's naked form.

And here is a photo of Harry not sitting!!!
And one of both of my gorgeous boys together... although Harry does look a bit startled by something!!!
And another of Harry not sitting, and Oliver falling over in sympathy... I wish this one came with a soundtrack because the giggling from both of them was fantastic.
Edited to add... he doesn't like tomato, won't even try it. AND he won't believe us that 'dip dip' which he has on virtually every meal, is made from tomatoes!!!
