a first day to remember!

"Mummy, I can't sleep!" said a little voice this morning at 4.30am. So in she hopped for a cuddle on the morning of her first day of school. "Mummy, my tummy hurts!" "You'll be right Lace" I said. She tossed and turned and was just sooo nervous. Finally we got up and as requested, apple and carrot juice was to be made for breakfast. No tears and some excitement was in the air! All dressed, hair done and bag packed it was time for some traditional "first day of school" photos. We all walked Lace to school together and saw her classroom. Air conditioning thank god! A few tears by Lacie and we said good bye. I'll skip straight to when we picked her up.... and I'll summarise..
  • She sat in her slushy (shaved ice drink) and had a nice BIG orange stain on her new school dress. She thought it was hilarious!!
  • I snuck in some lollies for her as a surprise at lunch time but they melted and made all of her lunch sticky and "gross" she said. Oops sorry Lace.
  • We got home and I noticed a TATTOO on her stomach!!! ??? No more getting your head flushed down the toilet, these days it's a rose tattoo stuck on your stomach by the girls in the year above! You know who you are! ha ha...
  • And finally... tonsillitis! Doctor said no school tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, we will wait and see how she is in the morning.
Ahhhh, what a day for a 4 year old! Here are some pics from this morning.

last cuddles
I'm still working on my scrappy project. Thought I would have had it finished tonight, but we had such a big day and afternoon. I was able to whip up a anniversary card for Heath while Bon had some quiet time and Mitchie slept. It took all of about 20mins. I sewed the red felt heart straight on the cardboard and printed the words on calico feeding i straight through the printer. I cut it to A4 size and ironed it first. But it worked using just the calico. I also wrote some nice little somethings to my husband on the inside and sewed that in too. I would have liked the font to have been a little smaller and not in bold, but I just couldn't be bothered doing it all over again.

You don't even need a sewing machine to "sew" a card. Just a needle and thread and some imagination! Make and sew your next card and email me a photo of it and I will post it on my blog!! The next card I make, I think I will sew some actual colourful fabric on the front?? a button too??? a pocket even? Embroide something??? ahh the ideas are endless.... what is your idea.. and just do it! Then show me of course.


  1. hey Sarah, this is the first time i have seen your poppet since our kids were babies - she is so adorable! I only remember her with no/fair hair - so got a big surprise when I saw all that gorgeous thick dark hair - she is a splitting image of you though!!

  2. Awwww so glad to hear Lacie had a good day. Wow the tummy for the tattoo that's a new one. Only ever been the arm in this house. Crazy 1st graders ;) make sure Lacie avoids that mean, crazy chick on hot slushy days!!!
