Inspired Move...

You know those times when you just hit on a good idea and it works really well? Today I had one of those ideas. The children do not go back to school until Thursday and Colin had gone back to work. After initially waking up in a good mood, they started becoming cranky. Not good.

So I decided to take them to Runabouts, an indoor play area nearby. It was a bit of a gamble because during holiday times they can be heaving...but today we were lucky. It was virtually empty, which means unlimited play!!!!

They all (even Lucia) ran off and played beautifully which meant all I had to do was grab a coffee (nice coffee there) and a comfy sofa and chill out. WHAT BLISS!!!

As always I had come prepared with February Creating Keepsakes, LO sketch book and pencil.
Had time to finally read my CK and there are some great ideas in there...which really got me in the mood. On one of my many trips round to make sure the kids were ok or to have a go on the slide (got to do it!!) I noticed some fashion magazines....always a good source of inspiration!!!

Well ....I wasn't wrong! So watch this space because I got loads of ideas from just two magazines. There are some seriously gorgeous fabric prints and designs.

As we were packing up to go I was counting the cost of out little trip...it adds up when there are four of them! I was musing over this and was reminded of the Barclaycard advert....it lists the costs and then adds the line but.. (something) priceless......I could feel a scrapbook page coming on...
Cost of entrance...
Cost of drinks...

Mum's sanity ...priceless!!!! (ha ha)
