This is the June bank holiday weekend. The sun should be shining, children should be paddling, dogs should be panting and mums and dads should be quaffing white wine. Alas, someone forgot to tell the guy who is in charge of the sun and by heck it's a cold 10 degrees here. In fact Hugo was off at a three day Scout Camp  (along with 2,000 others-gulp) which got cancelled on day one -and- a- half due to the 'inclement' weather. Ahem. It rained so hard they were sleeping in puddles and it blew so hard their loo tent flew away. So they were whisked home and we decided it was the sort of day to visit the Dinosaur Exhibition at the Ulster Museum  in Belfast. It featured Real. Moving. Dinosaurs. Mide had to hold onto Kevin's neck very, very tightly just in case! The boys loved it, needless to say...

it's behind you...

Will wants to be a palaeontologist when he grows up 

Today I packed up a small something for Lucy and Ryan in New Zealand. I had a lot of fun making the bits for them. The chicken on a wheel was inspired by Joel Henrigues. He is soooo cool. Love it.

Squishy Fishy

Slightly Bonkers Chicken on a Wheel


  1. Lucy, Ryan and Mum totally loved all of the things in this particular parcel. The bunting and bird mobile have pride of place in the kid's bedroom. George, the squishy fish, has made his way to the toy box. And the chicken on a wheel is getting a good work out everyday. What a truly talented sister/auntie we have. Thanks xxx

  2. Hey Kate! Am so glad you liked them! I've made some star and bird bunting which I think you'll like too!
