Catching Up.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. And a big Thank you to everyone who is now sending a card for Ellie , looking forward to seeing more of them.

  Last weekend after having a bath , my Daughter cam downstairs and said "Mum ,I want my hair cutting , can you get your scissors and do it please?" After my horrified squawk of "NO" , I persuaded her to give it a week and if she still wanted it doing , I would make her an appointment at the hairdressers. Until then ,she had been adamant that she was growing her hair down to her bottom , so I was not convinced that she would go ahead with it. By Friday , I was fed up hearing "I am sure I want it doing. "  So off we went . From this,
To this


It is taking a bit of getting used to, but she likes it which is the main thing. Though , she keeps saying that she wants it even shorter.
   The weather is pretty rotten at the moment . Wet and murky today , which is an improvement on Monday evening ,when we had a terrific hail storm which lasted for quite a while.


Finally ,some stitchy updates . Here's where I'm at with my boys' Pokemon
And my Daughters' Disney squares

 Ariel now has a full head of hair , but nothing else yet . This will be remedied quite soon. Tomorrow I am planning a serious case of stitch ass. Hubby has a play date , so when he has gone , I'm planting until it's time to fetch the kids from school . Hopefully , then I will have some decent progress on LK ABC Lessons.

 Still getting used to the new blogger layout ,slow but sure (hopefully , lol.)

Until then ,thanks for dropping by ,

 Cath

Now that is definately a chop at the hairdressers.
Aerial is one of my favourite Disney characters, she'll be a lovely stitchy project.
