Apologies (once again) for absence from these parts. Just two weeks before her second birthday Ginger is busy cutting her two year old molars. And, while we have not been having the night wakings that accompanied earlier teeth arrivals she has been one clingy bub during the day.
Also, Mr Provincial is back at university and has the computer mornings and evenings, leaving me only Ginger's naptime to post. Frankly, at 8 months pregnant I have been taking that time to nap too:) Oh, and lastly we are weaning Ginger from TV. She has only ever really watched one playschool episode a weekday, but lately she has been asking to turn the TV on. Mummy had a little freak out; so the TV is out of bounds for the moment. We are a week into the new regime, and all is going well but there goes that useful half hour of tidying or blogging time. I know as her imaginative play develops I will win back that time many times over, but the beginning stages are tough.
Anyway, I have found time to finish Ginger's birthday crown. Finally. Just a year late. I have a reveal of her birthday presents, which are also homemade, coming later in the week. I used Nicole's tutorial, which was really simple. Did learn something too - did you know in Australia you can label something as wool felt even if it is not 100 per cent wool. Not overly happy Jan (sorry, old yellow pages ad reference there)
