I have posted pictures of my progress so far under the Theme-a-licious tab at the top. So far I have worked on Garden Shed and Roots to grow. Below are some photos of progress so far.
The bottom design is the final part of the RR that I am participating in on facebook. The colours are nowhere near how they have photographed. The fabric is a lovely spring green in real life. I don't know who the designer is for this one.
Our childminder has stopped minding due to health problems and as far as we can decide is unlikely to start up again, which is a shame. Luke especially liked going to her as she took the kids to the park every night that wasn't wet. Luke really needs this to burn off energy after a day at school. He is a livewire and is rarely still. Thankfully at the moment work are being good about me finishing early. It is really hard to know exactly what to do. At nearly 13 many childcare providers won't take Rachael but with her diabetes we can't just let her come home on her own. The after school club is mega expensive and we really can't afford it. To send Luke there every night for a week is about £220 a month if not more and only takes up to 11 years of age. That leaves us still needing care for Rachael. Part of me thinks it may just be easier in the long run to see if I can cut my hours and if not just start looking for another job. It's hard to know what to do for the best.
Both the children were back at school this week. Rachael was particularly glad to be back. She had her school report on Wednesday which was excellent as always. It will be such a shock if we get a bad one from her one day! She is doing really well in all subjects.
