I am just delighted, my "Apple on Legs" print has made it to the front page on Etsy.
I missed seeing it but noted that one of my prints has a lot more views so I thought I must have been featured in someone's treasury. You can imagine my delight to discover that it actually made the front page.
We woke up to a blanket of snow this morning and my children just couldn't wait to get out there and throw snowballs and make snowmen.......
They managed to throw snowballs on the walk to school, but had to wait until after school to make the snowmen - thankfully it is starting to get much lighter late afternoon so they managed to get a good bit of snow play time.
There are now 4 snowmen in our garden (a mummy, a daddy, a boy and a girl) and a snowcat which is sat on a wall. It was too dark when I got round to thinking that I should photograph them to show here - maybe tomorrow, that is if the snow doesn't melt over night......
You make cakes..... Or at least that is what we did today. Nice fairy cakes with butter icing, sprinkles and a cherry on the top.
I am amazed at my tonsil-less babe's recovery so far. She is upbeat and wants to go out to play, but we have been told to keep her away from other children for about 2 weeks incase she gets an infection. So lots more cake-baking to come.....
What a hectic past 48 hours we have had. We got a cancellation appointment for my daughter to get her tonsils and adenoids taken out! So off we popped yesterday morning, teddy bear and dolly in hand.
She is only four and has coped with it all brilliantly. Remarkably, she was eating toast within an hour of the operation. No ice-cream these days - straight onto the hard stuff!
We just got home at 11am this morning after an over night stay (with me on a z-bed beside her) so not much sleep all round.
I think the run up to it was more traumatic for me as she was blissfully unaware of the operation - she was just looking forward to a "sleepover" at the hospital. Anyway, I am glad that it is all now over - the whole process went so quickly and relatively painlessly, a bit like ripping off a band-aid.....!
A huge thank you to all of the wonderful nurses and doctors at The Sick Kids in Edinburgh - you made my baby's stay very comfortable.
.....this lovely lady who is keeping her hands warm. I must have known that snow was forecast when I sketched this on Friday. She has been coloured digitally tonight.
We have snow forecast for tomorrow through to the middle of the week. I suppose we can't complain too much as our winter has actually been very mild so far. Will look out the sledges tonight incase we can have some fun in the snow tomorrow - knowing our luck it will just be slush!!
