Ho Hum

6 May
I really have nothing much to update my blog with, but I can see that people just aren’t visiting anymore. And I miss everyone. I read everyone Else’s blogs religiously and love hearing the stories, but can’t muster any enthusiasm for my own blog.

I’m just not into writing about myself at the moment, and I am sure people are sick and tired of seeing pictures of Adam. So, that leaves nothing much else.

I have done my first advert for Urchins. (I know it looks skew, but that’s the way it is supposed to look). And I know the colours are dull (mother!!) but I thought they looked elegant but also funky. I will change it in the future so that it looks good for all you “in the box” people!

Then, (wild excitement) I had my first actual job. (rah rah). I designed an invitation of a little boy, Matthew. His parents insisted on having a version of Adam’s birthday invitation (not the one in the advert above), so I couldn’t get too creative. Ah, well. It all ended up looking quite good. They had them printed on card and I was pleased with the result. Here is what the front and back looked like:

Well, I guess I will have to end off with some Adam photos. As far as I am concerned, the best kept secret in our area is the Stodels Nursery. Anyone with kids should be there whenever possible. There is a trampoline and a jumping castle. Swings, Slides, Rocking Horses, See-Saw. fish (well Koi) and chickens roaming around. And, of course, plenty of sand to dig in. And the best part? It is FREE! Except for the cup of coffee you gratefully guzzle while your child is happily quiet and entertained.
