Time for a new hat.
I have been struggling this week to find time to crochet, this has been due to Christmas parties, Christmas concerts, last minute Christmas shopping, wrapping presents.......the list goes on....and on.... roll on Wednesday when the children finally break up from school and we can lock ourselves away for a few days.
I did finally manage to find a little bit of me time last night, I knew I didn't have a long, an hour at the most, so out came the hook and a quick little hat pattern found at the wonderful Aesthetic Nest and in no time at all a new little cloche hat for Isla-Rose, in a beautiful plum colour.
Christmas wouldn't be complete with out a visit to Father Christmas, this is something else we have managed to squeeze in. We braved the elements and headed off to the local garden centre to visit the old man himself.
Isla has been merrily saying HO HO HO for the last few weeks each time she sees santa on the t.v or a picture, so we thought that maybe this year she may be pleased to see him, or maybe not.........
This santa was definitely onto a money spinner when we walked into the grotto, 2 minutes work for £8, luckily Lucie decided she was to old to see santa or it would have been £12, for 2 minutes in a shed with a screaming wriggling toddler. We will still do it all again next year though!!
Isla-Rose quickly forgot about the whole the thing after a visit to the coffee shop.
We bumped into another old fella on the way out of the garden centre, the kids loved him, we may just visit this one next year.
Speak soon xx
