On Good Friday I had a visit from my little brother, his wife and their two amazing little beans. Here is a snippet of what the weekend was like... mostly...
Willow is, of course, the only being in the house that matters to my niece and nephew. They ADORE her. It gives me palpitations though. No matter how hard I try and train the children and the dog there is always a moment where it's all a bit too loud and hectic. It's hard to get across to everybody that the children and Willow must NEVER be alone together EVER. It doesn't matter how lovely Willow is.
Willow does have her limits and she will just walk away after looking at me and checking. However, before I could do it, Willow told off my niece for hugging her too tightly. Just a whip round of the head, but enough to shock my niece into coming over to me very quickly for a hug. As I said... Palpitation's.
I love that little dejected look on my nephews face. He spent the whole time following Willow around and wanted to be next to her all the time. Willow was having none of it!
Exhausting. At this stage I was about to join Willow for a nap. This photo was taken 15mins after they had left. :)
This isn't just a picture of a bin, well, ok, it is. It's actually my interim willow soaker until I get a large enough sheet of plastic to convert my trailer into one.
I managed to make a basket with my dodgy willow but refuse to give it to anybody because the willow is just not right.
Would you look at this pendant Leo made for a commission. I LOVE it!! I know it was a bit tricky to make, but I really think it was worth it! I love it when he makes something but hate it when it's not for me!
