Mondays are our lazy days. We normally hang around in pyjamas, play in the garden, and just generally potter around recovering from the weekend. I love not having to go anywhere. It feel like our lives are so busy these days with a different planned activity almost every day of the week, so I have made a point of keeping Mondays free. Sometimes friends pop in or we may have a wander up to the park but that is as far as it goes.
This morning was raining yet again so we spent our time inside and I whipped up some yummy berry pancakes for a late breakfast. They looked so lovely on this plate of nana's that I had to snap a pic
And then while the kids built themselves beds with the sofa cushions on the lounge room floor I finally made Lottie a blanket for kinder. I knew she needed one as the little bunny rugs she has been taking are no where near big enough, but I felt like such a bad mumma when I picked her up on Friday and one of the teachers told me she thought she was getting cold at nap time. So to try and redeem myself from that bad parenting black hole I went to Spotlight yesterday and bought the most delicious soft ridged fleecy fabric. It is so snug and the most beautiful shade of blue. I wasn't just sure how I would use it for the blanket but then I remembered my stash of flannalette paper doll fabric. They work great together, the blue tones down the candy pink of the doll fabric, and both sides are just so soft and warm. It rolls up nicely and just fits in Lottie's sheet bag. Now my girl will be toasty warm at nap time.
