Rome wasn't built in a day! Sounds like it was good start. What were you sewing? I did too much messing on the computer last night also, bought fabric for starting my first proper quilt. Looking forward to that. The TV didn't go on because hubby was out. That stops me from getting dragged into watching something, however the computer is a trickier distraction. Have a good day.


Hi there
I love your blog, I am so happy to have come across it.Your home is beautiful,very inspiring,I think we have very much the same taste!
I am saving for a sewing machine and cannot wait to get onto the "sewing wagon"...
My little boy is 5, and I have a girl who is 10.I know how you feel about trying to cut down on the kids watching the telly. I am having a battle with the Nintendos at the moment, too!
Will be keeping up with your blog!
take care


You're doing well! I also wondered what you were sewing? Sal;-)

hi nicky...
good on you ,not an easy task to avoid tv all week ...if the good weather holds up you are saved!!!!
my 12 year old son is out every morning to play tennis however that is only for two hours... computer is another drag at that age.... i fully understand your 4 year old...maybe a scrap book with loads to stick..


Don't be too hard on yourself! It is a tough job keeping the little folk happy and keeping them away from the tv. Well done you for taking this on though. I am sure you will look back and see what a special time this has been.

Thanks for sharing all you do.
