And just for his Daddy here is a pic of J off to the school teddy bears picnic
It was school sports day yesterday and J did really well. In fact he would have won lots had he not stopped to wave at mummy! And poor Mummy herslef was forced to make a fool of herself in the parent race. Thank goodness I have no pics of that.

Here are the pieces for my first ever cross stitch exchange. I have joined the lovely ladies at Exchange Heaven and the first swap available to me was a scissor fob. I was sending to Michelle http://stitchcraftplace.blogspot.com/ (modelled by my scissors!)
Its always nerve wracking sending a stitched piece to a fellow stitcher for the first time. I popped in a bar of choccie and a postcard and Michelle was kind enough to say she loved it all.

Slow wormAnguis fragilis
Slow worms look superficially like snakes, but are actually legless lizards. One way to identify them is that unlike snakes, lizards (and therefore slow worms) have eyelids.
They are not often seen basking in the sun and prefer to hide under rocks and logs. If caught by a predator, they have the ability to lose their tails, but the tail never fully grows back. They hibernate from October to February/March under piles of leaves, within tree roots and in crevices of banks. They hibernate both communally and solitarily, and sometimes share hibernating sites with other reptiles. They sometimes burrow in soft substrates so that just their heads are visible
Needless to say I am delighted to have met this little fella.
I can't show you my current stitching finishes although there are two as they are for an exchange so I'll pop up a pic when my partner receives them.
And here is J with a pic he did at school. He doesn't often show interest in drawing, being more a climb and leap and scare mum to death kinda kid so I think this is the first time he's drawn a face.
Also must add many congratulations to Jackie and family on the safe arrival of baby Thomas May 2nd 8lb 5oz.
Finally Tel this bit is for you.... Love you lots and miss you like crazy
