Well can you believe it , still snowing looking pretty thick with snow out there now . Yes all heating sorted , just tried to get out with hubby's 4 x 4  but traffic is moving very very slow and my little car , which is white is totally covered now with snow !!
      No milk left in the shops , good job i got some on the way to work and not on the way home today !
  Only shame it is a Friday and i was off work anyway on a Saturday and a Sunday    , but then again all the kids in school said we are having more next week and anyhow they promised me they are all doing a snow dance over the weekend for some time off  hahah 
  Ok keep warm everyone , wrap up warm in a crochet blanket .
     take care  Helen  xxxxxxxxx

Child minding exam

   Evening everyone  , what a miserable cold wet day here in wales.
    Been up early again , after a full week of work and more work next week !  Been today to sit my child minding exam ! think it was a bit OTT to be honest . I have been working all week with 3 years old , on time on my own with 23 of them , now just to look after 3 children , under three been going back and for to college on Saturdays and Tuesday evenings and today had to sit an exam!!!???  
 All tables set out like we were in school , all silence etc etc , do not turn over paper and start ??  seemed very unfair i think as some people go to pieces in exam but will go to college , have all police checks , first aid cert , hygiene cert but still need to pass this exam !! brought 5 of my own kids , all seem to have or are turning into "normal "human beings . Oh well  , watch this space , all i can say is i asked how long can you Wait until till you sit it again ??? hahah 
    Have a nice evening everyone watching X factor and  /or strictly come dancing  . Me i need to get on with my ironing but   i prefer to start another crocheting project . 
  Take care and enjoy your evening whatever you decide to do  
   Love   Helen xxxxxxxxx

work again !!

  Been to work again today . Fun times with the smaller children and so sad that even today some children , look so sad and so poor . Hard to believe in this day and age .  It is so  good  now that many have free breakfast and free school meals now  . These children are generally the most loving and caring of the all the children and are like little sponges and  absorb all the info and all the loving care you give them .   Hope my kids realize how lucky they are .
   Take care everyone , lots of love   Helen xx

Hope you like my cushion cover !!
