Satisfaction

On Saturday I had one of those awesome days where I achieved stuff

Finished 2 dresses

Made a cover for our supplementary number plate (by the way you can get a supplementary plate for $17.50 or you can get a fine of $150! – for use when we have the bikes on the back of the car).

I made a couple of personalised pencil cases for birthday presents

and a couple of clear velcro cases for the marbles and a very exciting new lego game (more about that next week)

Starched the boys initials above their beds new bunks!!!

(that’s a whole post some time – when the room is a bit more finished!)

and….. insert drumroll here…..

I made my first ever batch of jelly (the jam conserve type rather than the dessert type).

I am stupidly proud of myself – although I haven’t eaten any yet so I’m hoping the pride is not leading up to the fall!!

I love days like that!

And we’ve had 2 parties, a library trip, a black tie/Oscars themed 40th,  church and a whole lot of crazy…..

What’s your idea of a good weekend?

  1. Wow! that’s super impressive. Did you have time to breathe??????? I can’t believe you didn’t try the jelly, I want to dip my knife in and spread it on some toast.

  2. Amazing! I really dont know how you do it all. That jelly looks yum and the marble pouch is such a good idea. I collect marbles… I dont know why… Just because they are pretty perhaps? I was lucky to get a couple of things done off the ever growing list in my head… You should have the most enormous grin 🙂

  3. WOW the jelly looks simply perfect – I normally make crab apple and mint jelly each year – but this year our crab apple tree was a complete failure.
    LOVE the starched walls!
    You’re so clever xxx

    I’ve had a crazy busy saturday being a Bridesmaid and an incredibly lazy sunday recovering from the week!
