I am writing this morning before Mother Day gets any worse. I knew it wasn't going to be great for a while. Chris is doing an ambulance course all weekend and left at 7.30 this morning and won't be back until late. I've just discovered the pram is still in the back of the car and Chris has the car. So my plan of walking with the girls to a nice cafe and having milkshakes and cakes has gone out of the window and now we are stuck here all day.
Isn't it ironic that all I really want at the moment for Mother's Day is peace and quiet some time out from the girls, maybe time to read or just be by myself to sit and saviour the silence. I haven't had time by myself or been by myself in the house for weeks. Nap time this week has not been good and definitely not relaxing.
So I think I'll make myself a coffee and some eggs for breakfast and just let the girls destroy what they haven't destroyed in the house and let them have a Wiggles marathon.
I'll finish with a hint that made me happy yesterday - perfect pocket corners. I remembered the tutorial from Anna Maria Horner on making perfect circles and realised I can do the same for pockets. Using foil and cardboard cut to the shape you want just iron it down, no burnt fingers and the perfect shape!
