The good thing was that I hadn't quite finished her bag until I got up so I got to see her face when I have it to her and she loves it!!
She said, "All my friends are going to be asking for one of these you know mummy."
So I said, "Tell them they can have one made if they want one :)"
I ended up using almost all of the acrylic paint that I bought :o on just one bag! I need to find something to stop the hessian from soaking it all up, like mod podge or something.
Does any one have any ideas?
I do have an acrylic spray that's clear that I am going to use to cover it when it's completely finished so that it won't run in the rain, but when I used a sharpie pen on the bare hessian, it ran!
The hessian is really really absorbent!
I'm going to make a few more for Willows friends and see what they think of them.
Willow is having a sleep over on Wednesday night so I might make one for each of her friends to take home after.
Do you think they would sell? I might sell them too.
So yesterday (day 7) my parents and David took all the kids to the beach hut and stayed for a few hours while I got some rest. I also did a little cleaning, packing and I made this for Willow to come back to :)
I just wanted to do something nice for her :) she brought it home too :)
After they got back we all got ready and as I had already showered I was ready first.
We went out to a pub for a meal but it was really really expensive. It was £3 just for a pint of diet coke! Fruit shoots were £1.50 for a SMALL one!
A pint of Guinness was £3.50! Ridiculous!! The food bill came to £85 for 4 adult meals and 4 kids meals plus £20 for drinks for us all. 2 pints of diet coke, half a lager, 3 small diet cokes, 1 orange juice and a pint of Guinness. Oh and two small tubs of Pringles came to £19.87!!
The food was okay but David only had a burger and chips!
I had a gammon steak with egg and the egg was runny but so was the white and it made me feel sick. I don't mind runny yolks but runny whites are like snot!! Eugh!!
Anyway my parents stayed with the kids to play in the play area and me and David took Kaia back to the cottage to get her bathed and put to bed.
Willow said she had a great day and was very happy with her presents :)
My parents bought her digital camera for her birthday. My brother bought her an umbrella that you can design yourself and then she has gotten £55 in amazon vouchers. (She had some money but I've given her the money in vouchers to spend on her kindle and on why ever she wants :) )
Her dad gave her a voucher and so did my sister. The cash was from David's grandma and my other brother.
I think ill let her have £30 worth of books and music and then the rest he can have something material. (Not digital)
So all in all she had a great day that's the main thing!
I on the other hand had an awful day yesterday. I was in sooooo much pain and David was ratty with me. I would have needed my wheelchair to go out and he moaned so I said I would just stay behind. I didn't get much sleep though.
Last night I slept rubbish until about 3.30am when I finally fell asleep and I was that shattered, I was apparently snoring!
I must have been exhausted because that's the only time I snore.
We woke up really early to pack as we were supposed to be out by 10am but Helen the owner have us an extra hour so that I could get some sleep.
I woke up before that in absolute agony. My whole body was screaming in pain and so was my mouth! It hurt so much I couldn't help myself!
David did most of our packing and my mum did the older kids and theirs.
I went back to bed for an hour and a half while they got everything into the cars.
We set off to Mablethorpe to collect our prizes from all the tickets we had collected while in the arcade and I got my mum a present to say thank you for taking us on holiday. :)
It says I love you mum on the box :) I thought it was perfect.
She also loves her new necklace and bracelet that I made for her :)
It's made from purple paracord :)
Also she loves the dress I refashioned for her!
It was a size uk22 and now is a size 12 and it had lining in it too!!
So that's all folks! We all for home safely and we are all super tired so we've gone to bed early!!
Hope you all enjoy the sunshine while it lasts and remember, if you see a dog in a car in the heat, break the window and all the police because even 10 minutes will kill that poor thing. If the windows are open it's better but still not okay. Heat kills so get breaking those car windows!!
(And not just for dogs but any animal or child!)
