Something funny is going on. After logging into typepad, I've just seen several comments on the last post that haven't been sent through to my inbox. But I am still getting emails, so wonder what is going on there? Maybe they'll show up eventually...
Anyway, today I finally got started on my Green Swap parcel. You would think that, as one of the organisers of this thing, I would have had a pretty good idea of what I was going to do for this swap, wouldn't you? I have actually found it surprisingly difficult. I think the main problem has been that I don't have very much in the way of recycled fabric with which to make anything, and that was giving me a bit of a mental block about the whole thing. But today I pulled my finger out, and have 4 parcels all wrapped and ready. Just need to sort out a few more bits and then I should be set.
Talking of swaps - remember Dolly Dollops Colour swap way back in March? Well, this morning I received a parcel from the postman, and didn't have the first idea who it could be from! It wasn't until I opened the card that I figured it out - it was from Kate, who I had agreed to an extra little side swap with. I had sent my parcel to Kate at the end of March and not heard a peep from her. No email, no blog posts, nothing. Very peculiar. So receiving this parcel today was a lovely surprise.
Look at those lovely goodies! I realise that these are dreadful photos and that you can't even see that in the little plastic bag at the bottom is some gorgeous miniature bunting!!! I'll try and get some decent pics tomorrow. I must admit, I'd pretty much written Kate off as a swap partner, but this just shows how wrong you can be sometimes. Thank you so much Kate for a wonderful parcel!
Tomorrow is the last day of this term for Joe (Will broke up today) so next week will be a lovely lazy one. I can't believe we're almost at the end of the school year already! Next year Joe will be in year 3 - juniors - which is quite a big step so I'm starting to feel a little anxious about how he will cope with it all. There will be a "transition" meeting soon, so hopefully the school will do what they did last year and try to make it as easy for him as possible. William, on the other hand, has stayed true to form and breezed through his first year at secondary school! Long may it continue!
