Want to buy a Renault Scenic? And a competition!

This is my car, it's up for sale as we have found a VW T4 caravelle for sale in the street opposite us. It's metallic aqua, about 16 years old and gorgeous. The girls have already asked me if I am going to make curtains for it and Maddie wants to put flower stickers on the outside. She's named the van 'Louie' because it is blue :)
MaryAnnLucy - remember this blanket? Sullivan loves it and snuggles it up to his face when he is going to sleep :)
Here he is in his Peace Baby jumper. I really enjoyed making this set (I've left the hat at a friends house) and plan to use the crochet embroidery technique on lots of other things. Pattern from http://www.jujubeandlolo.com/ I used Brown Sheep cotton fleece for the green and Mirasol Cotonani for the white.
Maddie giving Sullivan his first pc lesson!
I love my bath! This is a tummy tub bath which Mum and Barry bought for Sullivan, he really loves it and has great fun trying to drink the water! He is such a good boy, he sleeps from 6:30pm to 6:30am every night and has at least 5 hours sleep in the day too. When he is awake he plays and gurgles and chats for ages.

I'm feeling loads better, I go to the children's centre 2-3 times a week which is wonderful. The breastfeeding group on friday mornings is a life saver. I've also started a therapy called Human Givens. It's really quite amazing and I'll be having my next session next week. It takes a lot out of me and I couldn't have a session every week as I'd be too exhausted to function!

What else can I tell you? What do you want to know? How about you leave me a question to answer about myself in the comments? I'll answer them (if I get any questions!) in my next post. Everyone who leaves me a question will be entered into a draw to win a mystery prize from my stash as well as a few other goodies. Come on...they may be more than one prize....

I shall leave with a joke my dear friend Sharon sent me....

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway.Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind thewheel was knitting. Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lightsand siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn andyelled, "PULL OVER!"

"NO!" the blonde yelled back, "IT'S A SCARF!"

Have a happy day xxx

what a happy post! That little Peace Baby jumper looks adorable and the embroidery is so neat. I can't stop looking at the darling photos, especially the one of Maddie and Sullivan at the PC or do I mean the one of him in the bath. He looks delicious, so happy and as if he knows where he belongs. I think you should get some flower stickers for your new car, and a roof rack so J can put his canoe on the top, Scoobydoo anyone? A question for you...do you have time to read again now that Sullivan is sleeping through the night so beautifully?

Lovely pictures! I am going to ask, How much knitting time do you manage now with baby around!? I used to manage none as my brain was so dozy!!

That "Anonymous" was me, because obviously it was too hard to add my nick at the bottom. Sorry, I forgot ;)

How very adorable he looks! And he and his sister actually seem to get along. Remembering the long, long time my sister and I spent pulling each other's hair, calling each other names, and hitting each other before we became best friends... How in the world do you get your kids to get along like this?

I love that Peace Baby shirt! Adorable!

Both the vest and sweater are adorable - how on earth do you find enough time to knit in your busy life? When my girls were little I barely had time to breathe let alone learmn a new knitting skill ( cabling sans needle).
I think the wee vest would be perfect for the occassion esp if you can find/make a wee clip on bowtie.

Awwwww - I am delighted Sullivan likes his blanket - that is lovely. He is growing up so fast. Great news about your new car - my DD will be so jealous, this is her idea of heaven!
