Sibling LOVE....

So the madness that is December has begun......... I'm not complaining though, I absolutely LOVE the build up to Christmas. The kids are already beside themselves with excitement, but instead of driving me INSANE a strange thing seems to have happened, they both seem to be getting on really well together (tough wood, touch wood) and have been playing really nicely for a few days now. It is so lovely to watch and I feel as though I have been waiting for a very long time for this to happen, I really hope that it continues.

It could be linked to the fact that Talia seems to have grown up so much recently. Honestly I keep looking at my little girl thinking when did that happen, I have always thought of her as a baby, but she is so capable, independent and tall now, definitely not a baby any longer. She is such a little Kiwi kid with her tanned skin, deep kiwi accent and her love of the outdoors. Julian and I were just saying yesterday that she will be the most Kiwi of them all and she is the only one who was actually born in England!

Friends at last.......
I have been busy making little bits and pieces for Christmas, not sure how I am going to fit everything in that I want to do!!!!! I am off today to buy some materials to make Talia a Waldorf style doll, I have wanted to make one of these for a while now, but thought they looked a bit difficult. I recently bought one for Lola for Christmas and also wanted one for Talia, but the bigger dolls were soooo expensive. I have the book on making the dolls out of the library recommended to me by the lovely Claire who has also made a couple of these dolls, hers are gorgeous!!! So I am going to give it a go, will let you all know if it is a success or a disaster. Wish me luck... X

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
