I toyed with the idea of seven pictures of Dixie, but seemed a bit silly when she has her own starring role in a blog post already.
Been using up some odds and ends out of the cupboard. Eeking out the dregs of the wages to get through to payday. One of the things I made was a chocolate krispie base with a tin of oranges layered across the top and then a nearly set milky jelly poured over the top. Very nice it was too. You can see my post and other ideas here.
We had Dixie out for her first walk today. She has never walked on a lead before this, or seen street or walk passed moving cars.
We have had some snow here, not half as much as other areas of Ayrshire but enough to be unpleasant. DD1 did not want to drag Spud back out in the cold again and SIL1 was stuck at work as he was struggling to get out for the snow. So I went and picked the twins up and got bombarded with snow balls on the way home.
They were loving the snow.
DD1 needed to register the twins for starting school in August but her car is off the road. The plan had been the other grandpa would run her in while I watched Bob and Spud but their wee village was snowbound with no passable roads so Bob came up here to stay with granddad and I took DD1 and Spud to town. We played in the puddles and the light layer of snow until she came back out.
We got back in time for me to pick the twins up from nursery while DD1 put her shopping away.
Sadly one of the mums of a school friend of Fifi's died recently. She wanted to go to the funeral to be there for her friend, to show her her support. I thought that was very mature of her. So I picked her up from school and ran her to the funeral, took a wander round Dobbies while she was in there and then went back picked her up and brought her home.
We had some nice conversation in the car, she was feeling positive about the results of her English prelim she had taken on Wednesday,and was looking forward to her art on Friday.
We were also talking about our funerals when they come. We both want to be cremated, I want " the wonderful thing about Tiggesr" played as I go through the curtain, she wants some popcorn kernels added to her coffin so she can go out with a bang.
A fellow comper had these samples of material that he was nice enough to send to me for using.
The baby blanket is ready for handing over. The yellow is towelling, the white and purple fleece and the elephant material is padded.
Following on from last weeks Giggle Knickers it got me thinking. So to reduce my impact on the environment I decided to buy some reusable towels. No more going to landfill from me. Not tried them yet but will let you know what I think of them next week. Not quite sure why they make the bacl of them from silky material, will be interested to see if they move.
