Good morning, it's Friday again, thank goodness. I tell you what I didn't realise just how many things Charlie does in the week? When he worked and was away so much I just got on and did the every day things like taking the rubbish out to the bins and putting them out on the right days, walking the dog, going and getting the bits of shopping like milk and bread. Oh boy with him being unwell and not doing these things I have taken really bad with it. So I won't think " what has he done all day". The other thing Is he not doing the cooking ok he's not really eating either, just light stuff like scrambled egg and toast. So I have had to do all these things.
As its " Oldie Friday" over at Erika's blog I thought I'd show what I helped the girls and the others who do Pony Club quiz every Wednesday from the beginning of December until April. If they are lucky enough and the Fife Hunt Pony Club have been to get to the Nationals they are given the theme to do a board to take with them. Last year it was to do with their club and what it meant to them, they had the ideas but couldn't think how to do them on the board - of course Anna and Beth said " hazel will help". We spent a lot of time putting this together, they got to the finals with their board for the theme to be changed ( put it this way changed to make sure the one and only board that had the new theme just happened to be done with won). The team this year said they won't do the theme that's set they will do something different if they get through!!, it's a shame they are a good group of children who have had this happen twice to them. Any way here's what they did.
The jumper is all made out of card, I showed them how to do it and they took it all on board, the shirt collar was the hard bit I did cut that for them in the end. But it just goes to show what can be done with card and paper. Ok I had to scratch my head a few times and a lot of card was wasted to get it to this, but it's like making a card at times - how many get thrown in the bin???
By the way it looks like it will be Emily receiving the card. I think Granny will have to make a couple of Valentine cards don't you think?
I better go get dressed and get this dog out for his walk, then come home and have a hot shower and clean clothes on, it's so muddy out there and I can't see the point of putting clean trousers etc on to come home and have to change. I have a pair of big brown eyes looking at me saying " come on mum". So I'd better go. Thank you for stopping by,
Take care when out and about.
