Whatever the diagnosis, this strange bug is not to be confused with another designer affliction uncommonly known as stencilitis
of which I also exhibit classic symptoms.

I may not recover but I have the tools to cope.

My little girl is not so little anymore. Possible I may be in a teensy bit of denial so suddenly there’s a big time rush to get moving and get stationery. In the meantime I have found these fun but kind of not so practical items…

Giant pencil sharpener pencil holder by Suck UK spotted at Espresso 2108 Palm Beach. Used as sugar container. The lovely owner Sal has some very cute little bits and pieces on display. [They have a nice logo too, with a little help by yours truly] And great coffee. But that’s a given.

And there’s my nearly 8 year old. He’s moving up into Primary. So old school is not such a big novelty. Still cool though.

And now I get to me. [She whispers finally] Left soon with a lot more time to myself.  I’m getting a little edu-macation too.
At the School. The super talented and multi-skilled Megan Morton’s project/ business located happily next to Koskela and Kitchen by Mike. I’m starting with an Instagram course, because I am addicted and, I apologise people, I have been spending a lot more time on IG  at the moment than blogging. It’s  fun and quick and my camera is in for repairs so I’m i-phoning it.  After this class I’m pretty keen to do a screen printing session with Rachel Castle [who so brightly puts the love in the coconuts]

So much to do… There and here. Everywhere.

So yes, a big week for all of us. Smiling and waving. And with a few tears probably.

Who’d a thunk? Bizarre bunch of goodies…

Not the usual egg and bacon strips, these are band aids, comes with rad tin and free pig!

Red enamel egg cup looks like a campfire, my daughter Lily [3] made the little Easter chicky egg

No animals were harmed.
