holidays and day care...

whoever invented the feeling of guilt should feel guilty! the problem with being a teacher is that i need day care for the weeks that i work but not, of course, for the two weeks each term that i get to stay home. i know that i could keep mia and claudia at home with me but then i have that little voice inside my head (and mick) saying 'you are paying so you should send them'. i know that they are having a great time and the staff are so very caring but i still feel guilty:( and then i also feel guilty about how much i love getting all those little things done that i just couldnt possibly do with them around. i know that i am not the first to feel like this and i wont be the last. lili was very good at painting and really enjoyed it. here you can see the white under coat and the colour we chose, actually we didnt have much choice as it was the only colour we had:) trying to save money! one of the things i wanted to get done over the holidays was to paint the inside of the cubby house mick had built a few months ago. lili and i managed to get most of it done, all that is left to do is to go over the frame parts with white again to make it all stand out. i also have photos of the fabric box mick managed to make for me. i have the most dismal collection of fabric, but i am only new to this game.

all that is missing is a latch on the front

remember this old butter box? i bought it for mick for $6 and he turned it into my fabric box.

oh and i forgot to mention this little fella, i made him the other night and have decided to call him lopsy cause he is a bit lop sided, but he is so cute it is hard not to love him;0) look out for his jungle friend coming as soon as i get the time. lili loves him, click on the picture to make it larger. this photo is blurry but it shows his cute little tail. for some crazy reason i cant load any more photos on so i cant show you my fabric collection inside the box or the rattle toy for alyssa! very sad about that. i will try again another time. it is micks birthday tomorrow do i will post some photos of him and his cake as well. big smoochie kiss noises mmmwwah rosey

Hello there gorgeous girl, do not feel guilty remember a relaxed happy Mummy means everyone is happy!!!!!! Can't wait to see the rest of the photos the cubby looks wonderful, good job Lili.
I am not sure whether it will work with blogger but if you write your post in draft mode and then save your post after every four photos, you should be able to get more in. Just don't forget to publish it when you have finished. Speak to you soon, kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
