Jack Jack Jackie

I love this photo.....Jack is 17.5 months old. As I type he's watching "In The Night Garden". I owe this show big time! It allows me half an hour (or multiple half hours when I tape it) to get dinner prepared or have a shower, you know the basics in life! HA!

busy, busy

It's been a busy week..and I've been sick *cough cough* I wish I could lay on the couch and rest but alas the show must go on! These little gift tags are on their way to i dream a highway. I will be adding some more cards to the shop soon (i promise)

your it!

So I was tagged by the very talented curlypops

The rules are:

1. Link to the person who “tagged” you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.

Here goes..

1. I've been with my husband for 11.5 years
2 I'm turning the BIG 30 this year! EKKK!
3. I have always wanted to be a nurse and still think about going back to uni to study for it
4. I'm a member of an online parenting forum where I have met some of my best friends
5. I got my drivers licence when I was 30 weeks pregnant with my son
6. I've moved 10 times since I was born

I'm going to tag

I've been knitting again. Another neck wrap. This one folds down like a collar. I can't wait to wear it. On last count I own 17 scarves. That's not too many....is it?

worth the wait

I was down to my last 5cm square of this fabric....the lovely lady who sold it to me said it was sold out and no longer available BUT I found some! I was browsing some blogs and stumbled upon a link to Etsy store which took my fancy..and there it was. Waiting for me

neck wrap

All finished. I'm pretty happy with it. It's chunky and warm. It sits right up under the ears and just on the shoulder.

knit one, purl one......

This is how I spent my child free time today (while my little one was sleeping)....knitting and a cup of tea. Absolute bliss!
I'm knitting a neck wrap....hopefully it works out like I imagine it will. I'm going to fasten it with a big covered button

Jack and I went to the zoo yesterday afternoon. Despite all the rain in the morning the sun came out about 2pm. I really enjoy the zoo...I always have. Since having a child I have more of an excuse to go now. For Jack's 1st Birthday his grandparents bought him (and us) a yearly pass. So we are now FOTZ

Jack had a ball of course. He fell over in the mud and walked thru every puddle. As mentioned in a previous post Jack's favorite enclosure is the trail of the elephants. I remembered to take the camera this time .
