A little work stitching

Just a little! ... I had one of those frustrating times when every bit I went to stitch, I didn't have the right cotton with me! It's been so long since I stitched this I'd say I've pinched the colours out for other things. I did manage to stitch the leaves on the left and the grey steps/walls, whatever they are, at the front bottom of the house. I'll make sure I've got the couple of missing colours to take with me to work tonight though!

I'm very tempted to join in with Katrina and the other needleroll SAL girls this weekend ... wonder how long/difficult it would be to find one of my long put off needleroll charts amongst my ... very untidy and unorganised ... stash.

It's the end of week one of two weeks of school holidays here - mostly I like them ... but then there are mornings like today where I've just sent Mr nearly 15yo to his room because I'm sick of his smart, not nice, comments to his sister ... and the whining reaction from said sister that goes with it. Although, I must say, I'm always relieved when he actually listens to me - he's a good few inches taller and bigger than me now and could quite easily to tell me to go get knotted! (of course, he knows darn well that would probably results in loss of phone, or no roadcode book etc etc which helps).

I have so much to do this morning. I need to desperately tidy and clean this house up a bit, Rhiannon has a friend coming to play. I have some matchbox cars that need posting out, but need to go buy the boxes to do those. Probably means I should get off here and get to it!

I love that little cottage!
My chores have piled up dreadfully too, and here I sit, reading blogs. But only for a bit. :D
Keep correcting the kids - I get so tired of it myself, but eventually Mom's voice gets in their heads and never leaves, lol! At least that's what my grown ones say.
