I'm really careful with them in the sun - apart from Mark none of us are lovers of being out in it for any length of time and any holidays abroad are mostly spent under big umbrellas in the shade. We usually come back as pale as when we went. I spent all evening applying after sun and making him hold wet flannels over his face.
We took Sienna vintage shopping this week - also known as charity! We went to the YMCA where they had a really good selection of baby toys and picked up this lovely bead maze for £3 which I didn't think was bad, although I'm well out of touch with toy prices.
When Granny takes her outside she definitely makes sure she's covered up.
I've put a couple of finishing touches to the garden this week and added two more tubs and a little watering can.
And I started a poncho for Sienna which was on and off the hook pretty quickly. That's the beauty of crochet, it grows a lot quicker than knitting. I bought the dress from Peacocks as a spare for when she's here. Sophie puts her in lots of pretty colours so I think the poncho will match quite a few of her things.
Amy started her job yesterday. It was a 2 hour induction session and she really enjoyed it. She said the staff are really friendly and she was shown how the stockroom works, how to re-stock the shelves, how to label and how to use the till, which I think pretty much covers the job. She starts her exams tomorrow, 5 in total over the next fortnight. She's been a little stressed lately about them which is only to be expected but thankfully, she's very much in a "let's do this" frame of mind now and is ready to get on with them.
I haven't treated myself to anything 'frilly' for a while so I bought this melon and rhubarb candle which smells lovely. I really need to do a bit of shopping and change over a few things in the house but what with one thing and another there never seems time to think about it properly.
And apart from the usual bits and bobs that go on every day, I think that's all the news from Number 38 this week.
Hope you've all had a lovely week. I've some catching up with people to do but it's been a funny weekend extended family wise and my time has been taken up with other things so I'm hoping to stop by and say hello to everybody over the next couple of days.
