Brekky anyone?

There are only two lasting
bequests we can hope to give
our children. One of these
is roots; the other is wings.
-Hodding Carter
Hi everyone, today I did something that I
haven't done in my entire married life...
I went to the city and did some shopping
by myself!!! I did go to some shops that
I wouldn't usually bother to stop in
and I hadn't been missing anything.
I did find some nice shoes and tops for
myself and made a start on my
Christmas shopping.
 
Since starting holidays I have had that
extra bit of time to surf the net and look
what I have found.......
 
Yummy! bacon and eggs.
Fancy some breakfast? Or perhaps a
hamburger?
 
 
I thought it might be fun
for the kids at school to 'play with
their food'. Eekkk! Better not let any
parents hear me saying that. There are
patterns around for you to make
some yourself. I actually just stuck
some stitches on my crochet hook and
away I went. I haven't followed a pattern
for any of this stuff, just made it up as I
went.
 
'
 
Lettuce and carrot rings!!!
I also found these gorgeous little bootees
and I have made a trial pair to see how
they knitted up.
 
 
Cute little bootees
Click here for the
pattern. The price is $3.99 US to
buy the pattern.
I'm hoping to get a bit more done on the
garden as the weather is starting to be
all silly again. I'm having to take
preventative measures against
hay fever this year as the wind is
really kicking up its heals.
 
Some of my garden. Below is a favourite garden statue of
mine. Notice all the straw around her!!

 
A most pleasant day to you all
and to everyone at home with small kids,
really enjoy the pleasures that your
children bring.
Catch you all another time.
 
Cheers, Anita.

I am so pleased you had success with your shopping trip. Sounds like it went well.
LOVE the breakfast foods. And the burger. They are really good fun!!!
The bootees do look interesting. These are the ones you said were a bit tricky?
Your garden is growing well. I still can't get used to the idea that you are having hot days in the 30s already.
Keep enjoying your holidays!!

I need to find a knitted version of the eggs and bacon. So fun!

Another saying I like is "a good childhood lasts a lifetime ~ " Those knit foodie items will be lots of fun for your children to play with!
