Half-term fun!

Another week has flown by here, but it's been a good one!
There's been apple picking...

Once the tree was stripped, we could no longer see the inside of the basket!

A 6th birthday celebration...

I have failed as a Mum because I bought this cake! I do normally bake their cakes - honest!

A halloween disco birthday party...

My little pumpkin is dancing away and you can just see the birthday witch on the edge of the photograph! This was only this afternoon and my two halloween disco dancers are now fast asleep - wish I had their energy!

A trip to the beach...

And just a little crafting...

The skeins were wound into balls ready for those lovely Japanese flowers. I have decided to make a cowl by crocheting two rows of 13 flowers and joining the ends together. It is so lovely to work with; silky soft and worth every penny.

I hope you have had a good week too.

  1. What a lovely week you have had! That monkey cake looks fab - I don't think you have failed as a mum, I bet they had a lovely time and enjoyed the cake very much! Happy Halloween! x

  2. That is going to be the Best. Cowl. Ever! Can't wait to see it when it's finished :)
    ps I can't remember, I think you entered the giveaway on my blog, but if you haven't; there's still time! :) Today (October 31st) is the last day, so hop on over to enter & win! :)

  3. Glad you have had an exciting week Becky! What an amazing basket of apples!! Your first flower looks fab and you can nearly see how soft it is!!
    I really appreciate the line 'the skeins were wound into balls'....I ALWAYS get into a tangle somewhere in the winding process, whichever method I I know how long that must have taken. I wonder how much of crafting is the preparation?!
    Look forward to seeing more blooming lovely flowers!

  4. Looks like a fab week Becky! I love the little Halloween disco dancers - pleased you all had fun. I am very impressed by that basket of apples: we have a tiny apple tree that insists on growing apples that grow no larger than golf balls, and are pretty tasteless. Not sure what we're doing wrong, but yours look so glossy and delicious!! I love the colour combinations you've chosen in that crochet flower - looking forward to seeing how you use it. Bye for now,

  5. Glad you've had a fun week! Can't wait to see the cowl!
