On Monday Maddie and I left the washing, the cleaning, the crumbs and the chaos and went to our friend Nic's house for a spot of crafting! It was exactly what I needed! My teaching mentor used to call these kind of days "mental health days" and despite feeling a little guilty about the state of the house it was just so good to be in the company of my crafty friend.
The girls were so good while we were sewing. I wish I had taken a photo. Jazz had her own ironing board set up and contentedly "sewed" with some fabric scraps and a small pair of scissors (all the while chattering away to Maddie!)
Thanks Nic for a wonderful day (hoping we have plenty more like it in the new year!)
