Some making...but not scrapping :-O

So I have been wanting some new hair do's for the girlies for school, ones that keep their hair neat and tidy and away from head lice (hopefully!) I remembered when my sis Clare was doing ballet and she had those cute little crocheted bun net covers. Of course, I couldn't find them anywhere (you'd think with all the crafty old ladies out here SOMEONE would make them!)

I decided they couldn't be THAT hard to make...so I made two! And they seem to work really well! I shall see if they manage to tame Charlotte's hair for an entire day...so far the only thing that seems to work for her is two braids, and she HATES sitting still long enough for me to braid her hair...little monkey!


And another Charli funny...She was chatting to Mick last night about mobile phones (yes, one of the kids in her class has a mobile phone *sigh) and wondering if he had one when he was a little boy. She was horrified when he told her that mobile phones weren't invented then and asked "Where you a little kid in 19 - olden days???" LOL



She's a funny little thing!

Poor old Nat found out some sad news over the weekend. Her bestie Perinne is moving at the end of the year. Nat is devastated. She really loves Perinne, and school has been made so easy for her just by having such a good friend. My heart is breaking for her, but there isn't a lot I can do...I so wish I could protect my babies from everything sad and nasty. Sending them to school is just plain scary.

Have a great week! Sam and I are baking a cake today and then going to play 'Robot Dinosaurs' GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR (That was my best robot dinosaur roar!)

Love you!

and i know just what u mean about protecting them
lilly has a sometimes friend bella that she just loves...but bella can sometimes be just plain mean and try as we might to encourage her to other before the dreaded 3rd grade terrible girl thing happens she keeps playing with her...its so hard for them to understand friendships

I am so sad Natty about Perrine. Ginny was very shocked. You will always be friends and you can write to her. Maybe you could both do a blog!!!!
Kirsty congrats on the card stock. Pretty amazing.
