10th Time lucky

Lets Go Picture Crazy

Lets start with the walk from yesterday

Here she is walking down to the quiet road that leads to the shops
(wouldn't dare walk all the way down on the main road unless she is in her buggy
This is the Grass where she carried on walking down to the gate and got picked up on the way back
The gate into the park

Greeting some ducks before turning left to go around the pond

Behind that dodey there is a cheeky grin and rather awsome cackling happening

Her lady bird bag...  the lead has been taken off so that she doesn't trip on it
One Konked Tilly... too tired to keep her eyes open any longer... poor tyke.
Back to randoms over the last few weeks

Being Bonkers... there is no point in asking faith to smile...  we have to mimic Stitch (lilo and stitch) at the moment  to get a smile or grin for photos...
Though, ask her to pull funny faces.... that's more fun.

Mothers day cards.
Tried to get them both as similar as possible
and mums is on its way to NZ in the next few weeks ready for Southern Hemisphere Mothers day. 

Just woken up smiles for mummy with "ahs" (ta) for lunch


Mr. Jamaican Humming bird



Mr. Woodpecker.. who needs finnnishing



face down panned out.... snoring could be heard


nearly skinny tummy! in new dress with Tilly looking up the skirt

Mr. Heron by far my favorite so far


mummy drew a chick and a bunny on the card ... Tilly wanted me to...the rest was all up to Tilly



bloody computer will put pictures up as sooon as I can... Promice

Well I have managed to get big slow started up and onto the internet....
but for some reason I can't get onto the site that I put my photos on so I can show you what Tilly and I have been up to...

I can tell you I have managed to get some painting done....... Mum will agree to that, she has seen a couple of the pictures,
and that Tilly is getting SOOOO GROWN UP.

Yesterday Tilly and I walked from home  to the shops on her lady bird lead (harness doubling up as a little bag big enough to put a teddy or treat in) around the shops and half way backup the same road...(managing about 2 miles before wanting a carry)
I carried her from there to a patch of grass not far from the near by park and let her show me the way to the park...... so    over the grass.... through a gate... took the path  around the Pond the long way.. greeting all the ducks (about 20 of them), Canadian geese (about 15 of them.. bloody pests trying to follow), and moorhens as we go.....(another mile there about)
She had a 20 minute play in the play area and 15 minutes worth of it were going up steps and down a slide repetitively  ALL ON HER OWN.... I didn't even get a chance to put my handbag down.
we then sat down for a cuddle and some juice and a natter about what to have for lunch..
Soon It was time to go... she walked from the play area down and round the short way at the pond... and stopped at the grass...(not even1/2 a mile not including the running about at the play area).
Finally she was tired....
I carried her to the front door of the flat... she wanted down so she could walk in and up the stairs... through our door and straight to the TV... after her lunch she had a good 2 hour kip...

Today...  This morning   she has TV....  this afternoon  we visit  Nana Mumbles and Popop's for tea.
It is Mine and Hubby's 2nd Wedding Anniversary. we get to meet him there and then, when he has to go to Air cadets to teach the Kids Banner Parade Tilly and I will camp out in the Living room to watch a movie  and get ready for bed.....  (even I will be asleep before hubby gets home tonight)

Right, off to try and sign into where the pictures are again....  if it doesn't do it.... I'll cry.

Mums and tots and cheeky goings on

Tilly has started a stay and play group (Mondays and/ or Wednesdays and Fridays)
but no pictures of there due to child/parent/ carer confidentiality

but we have a cheeky monkey that likes the birdy song....

"with a little bit of this".. yes the little chirpy bird  hand gesture
"and a little bit of that"... close enough to little flapping wings
"and shake your bum"... yes the bum is wiggling, but hands are behind the head  almost like a sexy dancer
"and clap your hands" ... if she can be bothered

ah to be a 21 month old..... she cracks me up when she dances and of course, MUMMY HAS TO JOIN IN TOOO.

On the study front.... just put assignment 2 in.
assignment one was a beautiful Pass...

I hope in the next few days I can mooch through some photos and put them up too..
including a crochet jellyfish and fish named Freddie that Tilly seems to have pinched

Growing up too quick and finnishing a project

As ever, there is no order to pictures....
My apologies..
But a study break is in order.
A diploma in Health and social care...
just typing up assignment One... (ugh I hate the assignment writing bit)
More on that when I get into it a little deeper...
Tilly's Piggie Tials
We are managing to sit still for just a little longer so mummy can brush and plait hair

soo beautiful to brush. We may need a trim soon, but I know she won't sit still for a hair dresser just yet.  Maybe try my trick of CRAYONS and paper?

Cheeky ! managing to press buttons on mummy's tablet to take" selfies "and unlock the tablet.

Tilly has Jobs....
She chooses when to help (she is only little). there are  days she doesn't want to help at all
jobs include:
Tidying toys away
Helping mummy put her own washing in the washing machine
help mummy put wet washing into the tumble dryer and out of tumble dryer to be folded by mummy
and put her dirty nappy and pack of wipes in their homes (bin and cupboard)
Yes she gets paid... In white chocolate buttons and pennies (5p per job in her big tin then when we see a toy she likes   we may get it when she has enough)

It had been snowing a little.... but rain takes over half way to the point of having anything to play with...
Tilly still hasn't played in snow.
This shot was a fluke...
We weren't expecting an ambulance to go screaming by (didn't start its whirling till outside the flat)

At nana's in Jammies... pinched Pop pops cushion
we saw no point in changing her if she was comfortable, we weren't expecting to go to nana's till 5 minutes before we left... good job mummy keeps a bag ready with everything in it (including spare clothes and snacks)

I wasn't tickling her ribs honest...  that and "fairy" kissing cheeks and neck.....
(little kisses that tickle)

Weyhey! A finished project...
Tunisian stitch double sided, extra thick and cosy, made from scraps colourful and sooooo me scarf  just for ME.
it is rare that anything is made for me....

Last but not least.... TILLY playing E. T. 
save this one for last because it is just tooooo adorable to put anywhere else...
that's enough from me for now.... back to Effective Communication and Confidentiality in the work place......(insert the sound of wooden cogs starting up and splinters and sparks in my head)

Christmas Day

Apart from teethies hurting and causing ROSEY cheeks...  I think she had a good day...
Love from N Z and nana Lou..
Two beautiful dolls, new swimming costume and shorts and t shirt
lets start at the beginning!!!!
somebody woke me up at 2:30 this morning....
it is now 5:30 in the evening now.
By this point it is 6:30am.. I've been awake the whole time
I thought of revenge... but who can resist this gorgeous sight,
I left her to it... she only slept a few more minutes.
whilst sausages sizzled away in the oven... we opened presents....
here you see her new dollies and magnetic drawing pad...
she loves cuddling her dollies   and well   everywhere she went around the flat... there be at least one magnetic shape left behind... often carrying the pad about

Once dressed in a gorgeous outfit sent from her GREAT auntie Emma back on the Isle of Man.
and got to Nana Mumbles house
(mmmm turkey was the first thing you could smell as you wondered though the garage to the back door), we managed to get a picture of plaited piggy tails

Tilly's outfit

Well we cant leave the house without a cuddly toy  and the boy dolly came with us.
So here we are.. Santa had been here too

with jigsaw clocks....
noisy books...
and the farm fun pop up set...
 "oooooooooh" for moo

of course we are lucky if pieces of jigsaw stay with the rest of it

being a poser...

being a stunner


ah   MEGA blocks... lots of fun

Mummy has to build things... and tilly dismantles it...

whilst she was inspecting Nana's goings on I the kitchen  ( both of them playing under the ruddy table)
mummy made a BIGGG tower!
it WAS taller than Tilly

gorgeous smiles all day... just a shame her teethies made her cheeks very pink and so detinox gel and a dodey to help take the edge off.
She is just having a snooze. Fell asleep before we reached the half way mark home (the lake from previous posts  where the park is) 
she feels she is missing out when at Nana's
still snoozing, I don't mind, we will get her back into a normality again soon

A little bit of everything...

My apologies for the lack of photo coordanation
But here is a MISH MASH  of Craft, Christmas And Tilly
Of course... I only add the best pictures
This was a few weeks ago....
Tilly was holding Pop's teddy hostage till he had gotten home,
in the process of his absence, there was a lot of snoring!

I finished this little fello within 24 hours of starting him, he has been stolen off his spot next to the TV several times to be asked to switch his little LED light on (changes colours)

Ah, Doctor Tilly!
She gets so inquisitive around Daddy's Insulin pens and blood tester and can show daddy what he does after he has tested his bloods.
(type 1 diabetic)
so we decided to give her one of her presents early... A MEDICAL KIT...
of course within a week she has managed to leave half of it at Nana Mumbles or somewhere in the toybox.... it's case often gets carted around like a handbag.

Oh the cheeky little monkey!
she can't do wrong with that smile...
I love to see her giggling and grinning like this!!
and I know NOONE can resist these cheeky snaps

OO a snippet of the tree. all together there must be roughly 20 or so hand made decorations on my tree.. no specific colour coordination as it was WHATEVER was to hand.

a little red and white bauble

when sat happily waiting for Sunday roast to cook, and you ask Tilly if she is playing with the tree, she shakes her head and strikes a pose

ah, same day she pinched Pop's Teddy, his name is H
Tilly can't go upstairs to follow nana, or Pops without sitting in Pop's Desk chair.
last time I got a shot of her on the chair, she was half the size.

Ah, Today.... Hubby didn't know where to start!
we treated Pops and Mumble to sunday lunch... you can just about see Tilly's Favorite, Fish fingers and chips (with a mountain of peas)... she ate half the peas and most of the fish fingers......  Oh  and 2 chips.
Meet Capitan Tilly Purple Peg!
every time she had gone into nana's Peg bag... one came out and got added (often got pulled off and ended up on the floor somewhere in the house.
was nice to have a brew (cup of tea) and dark chocolate digestives whilst watching sister act 2

SALUTE! not quite....   close to navy..... need to practice methinks

See!!! more CHEEKY grins because nana had a Pen Moustache that kept dropping

which makes this little monster GIGGLE...
which makes the rest of the room GIGGLE and watch

HMM...  where did you get a chocky biscuit????
(she stole it of Nana)
we didn't see until she was half way through!

The BIG project.... 
getting Bigger.... Slowly....
It just covers Tilly....
But it is to cover HUBBY
and see the scrap balls waiting? (there's a couple more hidden)
 Still too full to have tea....  
may have some toast with Tilly later on...
