we started making bookmarks for Mother's Day presents. Then the postie arrived with a new, bargainous wrap. I am being a seriously hypocritical wrap-ho by getting one as I fell out with the Evil woman and swore I'd never wear another, but it was super-cheap, so principles? meh.
We also recieved some wonderful wooden toys from Kerry today that I have started to paint - will oil them to seal once they have dried.
Planted(!) our avocado stones.
Our trip to Asda was a very windy one, Tilda found a ladybird, we read the poem on the sculpture, then went and bought Haribo!
The poem reads;
Come all you people
Pause a while
And I will tell you a story.
A story of this enduring valley of ours
Of factories and flowers and furniture
Of lace, bobbins, planes and pencils
Of mines, railroads and canals
Of water and willows
Where Kingfishers and Herons dive
Where quiet flows the Erewash.
