Hello everyone, I am back!
Did you miss me..?
We had a wonderful week away.
I am refreshed and re-charged and this is the 1st non-scheduled blog post for over a week!
bore you all senseless fill you all in with some completely non-Make Do and Mend holiday shots in a day or two, but for now….
BigSmall got a party invite a couple of weeks back.
Then we went on holiday.
And kind of forgot.
I remembered while we were away, and in ‘normal’ circumstances, we would have just popped to the shops in lovely Tenby and found something suitable. But this is My Make Do and Mend Year, and as we all know, normal circumstances do not apply… So I was trying to work out what I could make quickly on the Saturday evening when we got back, ready for the Sunday party.
When I mentioned this to hubby, who told me I was an idiot to even think of attempting such a thing.
So, I thought about having a quick scout around the charity shops of Tenby, but the beach and Small children, and boat trips and castles kept calling.
Then, on the way home, I had a spot of inspiration….
We have a stash of things that the boys have been given at various points that have been secreted away, either because they have something similar already, or they are at risk of present over-load.
Although obviously most of them are boy type presents, and I wasn’t too sure how chuffed a 4 year old girl would be with a couple of Thomas the Tank Engine books…
BUT, I managed to un-earth this little beauty!
Rustled a bit of ‘lightly used’ wrapping paper…
I do feel slightly mean. Not entirely sure where I stand on the morals of ‘Re-Gifting’ but it got me out of a hole on this occasion, so I am not going to looks a (Re-) Gift Horse in the mouth 🙂
PS. Entries are now closed for the wonderous Giveaway. Thankyou for all your lovely comments-the name drawing will be done tomorrow if you can bear the excitement!
PPS. It’s good to be back 🙂
