1. This week I am so very grateful for a walk along the beach with my beautiful dog Reuben. He get so excited as soon as he sees me put my runners on loves meeting all the other dogs along the way. I've been walking most nights for the past 3 weeks whilst the husband puts the kids to bed. Now that is something to be grateful for, if only they were actually asleep when I got home. Not his fault though, my monkeys are too busy talking and giggling to sleep.
2. I am grateful for my first child free day since last year. I crave time to myself and after the holidays with 3 kids and husband home the whole time I was desperate to have the house to myself. Taking a little time out to smell the roses. Bliss.
3. I am also grateful that my husband has mostly been patient with my crazy premenstrual mood this week. Despite trying to suck up the bitch within, it has surfaced on more than one occasion................ maybe that's why he is almost pushing me out the door to go for a walk at night!!!!
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
