Coming of age

In 8 days time I will have left my 30’s.  This milestone seemed like so far away and now it is here….
Not sure how I feel about it.  I certainly don’t feel as old as I had imagined I would all those years ago.

I am mad busy washing, drying and folding clothes in order to get back to the caravan for “The Final Countdown”

For the benefit of the young ‘uns out there…..

Watch this 

From Saturday I have my family arriving! I seriously cannot wait! It will be the first time all the family will be together at the same time.  We can’t count the Christmas we were together as Shamrock 2 was still cooking.  The excitement is bubbling and I fear that I will be a squealing wreck by the time they all arrive.

In the meantime to take my mind off the reunion I will show you some of the photos I took in the last couple of weeks.  

At the campsite we go to, there have been loads of bees in the area and they have joined me whilst sitting, drinking coffee and crocheting in the sun. I have some cracking shots.

The campsite is amazing for kids.  They go off all day long with their friends and we only see them when they are thirsty or hungry.  The way childhood should be.
Shamrock 1 wanted to show his cousins how he enjoys the “Lazy River”

As usual, when the kids are entertained/playing I get on with my orders and my ongoing project. I had to bring my “whole” stash along with me (although I couldn’t justify taking all of my yarn)

Photo shoot of the boots available to order on my Facebook page here

These booties have become my best seller.  My plan was to make children and adult’s high top slippers.  I am currently waiting on a delivery of non slip glue for soles so that I can start making the order of 6 pairs of children’s slippers that I have already.  Not to the mention the whole load of baby ones that need to be completed.

On that note. Must rush and carry on with the orders and packing.  I won’t have a lot of internet over the next few weeks.  

Next time I come here I will be a 40 year old *gulp* 😉
