I love doing the advent calendars, it's a lovely mix of hand sewing which I adore and using the machine to put it all together to get a great final product. And it's great to know they will become something that a child will use year after year. I've also just had the idea to create filler packs so people can buy the toys to go in the Advent Calendar at the same time, to save chasing round trying to find 24 little items to go in them! Why am I thinking about Advent when I've barely decided what I'm having for tea! This is my problem, I get distracted with ideas for Mummy Duck and forget about the boring stuff that needs doing today! Anyone else find this?
Top Tip Number 4
As much as we'd like to think we are Supermum and can do everything perfectly, we have to admit that we can't be perfect at everything and not beat ourselves up about it. My downfall is definitely housework and cooking!!! Everyone asks me, how do you manage your jobs, and Mummy Duck and 2 children. The answer is very clear if you look at my house and our 'menu'! But I figure I can just do my best, so we muddle along and one day I'll suddenly find the time to do everything perfectly, but not today!
