Time out

It's been some time since i last blogged....oops

I could give you a heap of reasons for this but the truth is i just haven't wanted to (gasp!)I haven't even been keeping up with what's happening on the blogs i follow. So much to catch up on :)

I've really been enjoying my 'time out' though. I've been doing Mummy/housewife stuff , sewing, reading, but mostly enjoying life. Here is just a few things I've been up to lately.

Earlier in the month, Diddle & Ro had a stall at the Sisters' Market in Brunswick, Melbourne.

Wow! What an experience.

After a stressful unloading of the car and setting up the stall , John and I settled in and had a great time. City markets certainly have a different feel to country markets. There were heaps of fantastic stalls there. I will definitely be coming back here as a shopper.. I just loved it.

Miranda celebrated her 9th birthday this month (Where has the time gone?)

We decided to do something a bit different this year, so we had her party at a scrap booking shop called the Imagination Factory in Ballarat.

Miranda and her friends had the best time. They each got to create a diary to take home. I got so wrapped up making my own diary, I completely forgot to take much fun. At the end we had some cake and some treats. I certainly noticed a change in their energy levels after cake and lollies. So glad I left the sweets to last :)

Of course we had to make good use of the beautiful Autumn weather we have been having lately.

We did a few family drives in the country. Victoria is just so beautiful this time of year.

On Saturday, we attended the Daylesford Easter Makers Market. There is John in background trying to look glad he gave up his Saturday sleep-in to come to a craft market with me. The 'Gnome Town' Pinafore has been a real hit. I've been kept busy this month with orders for this cute dress (yippee).Hope you all have had a lovely Easter long weekend.

Take care :)
