Handmade Envelope Pack

Apologies for the lack of posts over the last few days, but the entire family has been suffering from a particularly nasty bug and there just hasn't been anything worth posting about.

I've tried to get back into the crafting groove this evening (Monday, 23rd April) - although it'll be Tuesday before this post goes up!  I've managed to add another 5 squares to my growing stash for the bed cover blanket, knit up two pairs of bootees which still need sewing up to put with matching hats for the Yorkshire Crafts shop, and have put together another set of 6 handmade envelopes, again made from pretty scrapbook papers.

What with it being world book night and all, I had fully intended sitting down to read something tonight, but other things just took over and before I knew it, it was well past midnight.

Not that we haven't done well with reading today, just not any of *my* books.  I must have read some Mr Men books to Junior at least half a dozen times today, and he also did quite well with "Pirate Pat", one of Usborne's very first reading books - although he seemed more interested in reading the page numbers than he was in reading the words!!

Later he did some of his favourite geometry on the computer and then we worked through most of an M&S "Bright Sparks" maths book for 3-4 year olds that I'd picked up at a charity shop, which, considering he's not yet 3, he did really well at.

It did make me laugh though when we were doing a matching exercise to watch him pretend to "click" on the book page and "drag and drop" it on its mate!  I don't think he's quite fathomed yet that this only works on the computer :))
