I’m not quite sure what I was thinking but I kind of forgot about the half term holidays. I knew they were coming but I think I might just have been in denile…maybe. It’s not gone too badly, the boys were in need of a break and in all honesty are playing really well together, some of the time 😉 So far the boys have:
Made Pumpkin lanterns and gingerbread vampires, ghosts, cats and some sheep (the last completely unrelated to Halloween but I really wanted to try out my sheep cutter from Hus & Hem, I’ve just bought the Elk set for Christmas). These are C’s he doesn’t do scary so he just made normal gingerbread men.
Removed all the bedding, blankets, pillows etc off the boys beds and made cinemas/caves/boats anything that involves lounging in a pile of nice clean bedding on the floor. On which note, we vamped up the boys room last week with an Ikea trip. They chose a rug, a light and a clock so F can see what time it is when he wakes at some ridiculous hour and thinks he should get up (bloomin’ 4am this morning and with C in our bed from 2am I wasn’t a happy bunny).
I bought blankets for the boys beds, you can get the same from Hus & Hem (I really love this shop, can you tell?), they were out of stock when I ordered mine but I see they are back in at the time of writing this.
and I made cushion covers for the boys from their old cashmere/cotton baby blankets to try and stop them taking the ones off the sofa for den building.
We have also watched far too much TV and Apple movies. I know, I’m a bad Mother but it has allowed me to have a moment’s peace and make a start on some new little birds.
I also dyed my hair yesterday, it was supposed to be a mid to dark red brown. It’s more like purple black, I have a wedding to attend soon so there will be a lot of hair washing in coming days (it’s a semi-permanent but I fear may be more permanent than semi!).
On a final note, thanks for such a positive response to the Foxes, I wasn’t sure how well these would go this year, as I know most of you lovely bloggy peeps who wanted one bought them last time around, but I’m very happy to see them flying out of the shop. Always a huge compliment to have things so well received 🙂
Have a spooky Halloween!
