Bit of a cheating Handmade Monday for me this week. Although to be fair I *have* managed a tiny bit of crafting thins morning, so I do have something to show on Handmade Monday. But in my defence I have been otherwise distracted by the squirmy little girl in my belly making a rather belated, although speedy, entrance to the world last Tuesday, at 6 days overdue. Bit of a whirlwind labour really, just about 6 hours long and somehow I managed to stay at home until the very last possible moment. Part of that was because I didn't think I was in labour, and a chat to the midwife on labour ward led me to believe if I was in labour, I was very early doors. Something about the fact I could talk to her or something. Apparently you can't talk through contractions. (Obviously not met me before!) Would love to have seen her face when I rolled up at the Labour ward an hour later fully dilated and ready for launch! I was a bit too busy to ask which midwife it was who thought I was only in the early stages, as Teaghan Alice arrived about an hour later. Does she count towards Handmade Monday?? :)
I did manage to knock up a thank you card this morning for the lovely midwife who delivered her.
And there was a bit of time for a bit of messy play with the Flip Flop as well. We made a telescope to go with the pirate sword and eye patch she got at Blue Planet on Friday.
Off to fulfill my role as Milk Machine now.
Til next time!
