My biggest little boy has been at preschool a while now, and he loves to take a wrap for his lunch. Every school day, I’d make it and wrap it up in baking paper, and think to myself, I really need to make him a reusable one. So for our craft time last week, we sat down, and Mr 4 rifled through my fabric box,
I started on some quilts for the boys. Two jewelled square bed toppers, with matching doona covers. But 6 blocks in, and I was over it. Too fiddly for the quick results I needed.

Neither of the two shops had anything remotely like what I was after.
After two boys, the whole “pink” thing has gone from “odd” to “overwhelming”. There is pink everywhere. I can do a whole load of washing, just of pink things.
