A rainy day activity...............x

I bet, like many parents, this weekend we were looking for things to do. We played board games, we watched a film, and then we made mice.....like you do.

Cardboard boxes ( teabag and smoothie ones ).....check.
Old fabric odds and ends.......check.
Mod Podge....check.
Felt, needles, stuffing, and threads......check.

The bumblebee's picked out their favourite fabrics, chose their mousey colours, ( big bumblebee thought hard about this, contrasting her pink mouse with a pretty house is ever so tricky.......or so she found. )
To be truthful, I could have sat there all day and made a little mouse town, but the bumblebee's are old enough now, that they don't really need mummy hovering over their crafts anymore. They can cope, and I should stop interfering. ( they didn't say this, oh no not at all, they just simply announced " mummy we are fine, you can go and cook dinner"....great. Thanks for that....I'd love to.......)........though of course ever now and then...." mummy can you just un- knot my thread pleeeeeease?"....and I run to their aid.

These mice do like an adventure, they really do. Riding on toy cars and lorries, is their preferred method of transport at the weekends.

You know I found them scampering about the bumblebee's bedroom last night, in the dark, squeaking excited squeaks, playing hider and seek in the girls hair......

And falling asleep on my cake stand, they look like they need a blanket don't they?

 I saw a mouse...where? There on the stair....where on the stair, right there.....

I think little bumblebee has sneaked her mouse into school, as she;s not in her house....or is she being a bad mouse? Hummm.......

*Sorry for the blurry pictures folks, still dealing with camera issues....makes me wanna sweeaaaam.

Guess I should toddle off, I've got moshi monster cupcakes to make before work this afternoon.......yes you heard right, MOSHI MONSTER CUPCAKES......I may have overstepped the simple make a few cakes for the cake sale mark. Who cares, I'll me one coooool mum hehe xxxx
