Many years ago....

...when my children were small, I thought I was so busy and had no time to do anything. It always felt like that. But I managed to lovingly cross-stich these special Christmas stockings for my girls. (My mum sewed them for me)
I was lucky to be able to stay at home with my babies until they were both into their school years. This allowed me to do many CS projects and also be a reading mum, help out in the classroom on special days, be on the Parents & Friends committee, do fundraising etc. Looking back, they were action packed days. We organised cabarets, garden days, catered for functions, held fashion parades & cake stalls etc.

Now I work in our business 5 days a week, from 10 til 4. I can have a day off if need be but usually I am there all week. Getting home at 4pm after I pick up the girls from the bus allows me time to think of dinner and chill out before then.
Even though the girls are getting older now, I will hang these above our fireplace (gas log flame, he he!) in the hopes old St. Nic will call.
