Boys bonding and fairy fun

This weekend Julian took Kalem and his cousin Joe to their very first game of rugby to watch the Christchurch team the Crusaders. They went out for pizza first so it was a real boys bonding night. They had such a wonderful time and Kalem came back a very tired boy brandishing his very own (foam) Crusader sword and a face covered in red and black stripes, the team colours. I had painted couple of stripes on his face before he left home as having been brought up in a family of very keen football supporters I know the importance of showing your 'true colours'... Go the REDS....

Of course as my mother-in-law likes to say 'there's no show without punch..'. Talia had to have a sun and a heart on her face before we settled down to our girlie night in with a big bowl of popcorn and a Thumbelina DVD.
Talia had a fairytastic time last week, here she is making some flower fairies. We actually had a kit, but they would be super easy to make with just a few fake flowers and some pipe cleaners.

The eeny weeny flower fairies having a rest after a busy day flitting around...
Talia also had a visit from her little fairy friend 'FIZZY' who lives at the bottom of our garden. We arrived home from school and found glittery fairy dust all over the doorstop and well everyone knows that means that there has been fairy mail!!! Talia rushed to the mailbox to find a little bunch of flowers, a toadstool card and a little parcel all for her...

Inside the parcel was a little flower fairy trinket box with this little bracelet inside. A magical day indeed..................

Are there any fairies living in the bottom of your garden?????? X

Oh Julie what a lot I've been kissing by being so busy!!! Your sewing is awesome - you seem to have well and truly got the bug! I know exactly what you mean about having to get the machine in and out and I am now so lucky to have somewhere for it to stay permanently (I actually stole the room from Cassia and she now shares with Maia - some mums eh?!!!). All the tomato goodness looks great - so lovely to have that to open in the depths of a southern winter! I too think I will have to fairy dust and see if any fairies come a-calling ... xx

I love it ! Very creative ! That's actually really cool Thanks.

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.
