Little P made this cubby house for Kermit and her baby doll on the back deck (the doll is under the bean bag, you can just see her bald head) The kermit came from Big D's Nan, and he's made from the most revolting feeling kind of fabric, he's a harsh softie!!
I love the little things she makes when no one is guiding her play, they are fascinating little things! This morning walking up to Daycare I had to grab her and pull her off the road as there was a car coming, when we got to the other side she said to me "Mummy don't pull me like that, I'm not a tractor you know"- made me laugh!

...in the shape of an overlocker has come into my life, thanks to Big D's Nan, it's old, but it works (thanks to Big D) just not sure how I feel about it. It's quick, and seams look 'finished' but then again are we just used to seeing our seams overlocked? The fact that it comes with tweezers for threading doesn't fill me with joy!!
On another note, I took Little P to an open day at her pre-school on Thursday, it was fraught! She was tired, it was hot, and when it came time to leave, she lost it, running and yelling 'nooooooooo I don't want to go, I want to stay and do pasting' - she was doing that yell and run thing so her words were all bouncy, and her nose was all snotty - and I was trying my best to stay calm, she was so loud though that I couldn't really 'use my words'!! The only words I really wanted to use were "fucking hell, why today?" Any way we made it out of the front gates, and home in one piece, and we did look lovely if that counts for anything?!!
