Got my crojo back

Among us dudes.. no, I don’t know what they are either, but the kids keep asking for them

King Lizard, or Mr Gecko, inspired by a colleague’s message on a particularly shit day at work

The Child/Grugo/baby Yoda.. whatever the fuck it is (more husband requested than child)

‘Picklechu’ I’m not even gonna try and explain this one… they ask, I provide

Pickletta/Rose / Made on request from girl/child

I’m now making a blanket, followed by another blanket, followed by.. a blanket. And whatever random creatures get requested in between. I may have ordered Black Friday wool, I’m literally tripping over it.

Holidays and fun days must end :(

Back to school soon. New shoes, trousers, shirts, water bottles….. Lots of money spent, hopefully they’ll look smart for more than 5 minutes!

Memories from this summer – the accidental minion Clan Lanaghan for Tyneside rocks (not that they ever got hidden!)

And there were 4 in the bed…


Whilst having the kids for the summer has been a little stressful at times, I’m gonna miss having all the minions around! This was the only summer we’ll ever spend all together like this and that makes me sad.

Although there’s a plus side – I’m glad to be back in my own bed, and this year the midgies decided I was tasty and bit me. A lot. And I have Pilates and aquafit tomorrow, I’ve missed my exercise classes (although walking for miles wearing a baby should have helped keep me fit!)

And maternity leave is running out.. Still waiting to hear about a job, so just trying to ignore the impending sense of doom, panic and waves of stress til nearer the time 🙁 never felt this bad about going back to work after mat leave, I thought I’d manage better third time round!
