Bargains, Sock Monkeys and Other Things

It has been a hot couple days for Cornwall amoungst other places in the UK. Had a bit of a time adjusting to it but a burst of sun has done everyone a bit of good, even if it is a bit weird in October!

First off, my sister in law started making sock monkeys last week, which i thought was quite cool. Now i've made a couple myself. They aren't fab, nothing special, a bit rough around the edges, but I find it very relaxing sewing them. So far i've made 2, 'Penny' and 'Two Tone:


I've got a good number of pricks and scratches on my fingers, not to mention actually snapping a needle (how? I dont know)

Also have stumbled across a couple of bargains recently. One was a great drawing table for Little Miss in a charity store which I got for £5 (couldn't believe how cheap it was!) and the other was a teddy with a CD attached to it for £1 from a local bargain shop. I know the last one doesn't sound so cool. but this CD was a Christmas one, and I cannot wait for christmas! I have a cuboard packed with gifts already and just finished my PARK order of vouchers which I should get this month. Anyway, when I wake up and realise it is infact the 1st of December I will be playing my new CD and I cannot wait!

As you can see, Little Miss is already enjoying her desk
He is pretty cute no?
A part from all that, there's not much to say other than all is well. Little Man's teeth are really poking through now which is so great when he gives you that great big smile! Little Miss has enjoed another day of school. Turns out there was a birthday today as both her and her cousins came marching out, big smiles on their faces with chocolate cake in one hand, a (clean and unused) paper towel in the other and the rest on their faces! Great!
Have a good weekend Cupcake Mumma x
