Handwriting is hard work!

Hey all, hope you are all well. We are on the second week of summer holidays for the kids (vacation for those of you not in the UK) and as you might have seen in one of my previous posts, I made some cards for the kids teachers.

An example of the card.

Now while I was happy with these, I didn’t like my writing, and I’m hoping I can sell some to raise money towards the new chair I want, which means it needs a lot of improvement.

I have decided I am going to try learning modern calligraphy, I have watched some YouTube videos, and I have a practice book and pen set (but the fountain pen hurts my fingers, I forgot what it was like to write with one) and had a try today. I am definitely going to follow the advice on Natalie’s Outlet

I may also get some of the pens she recommended to make my writing better. These are my attempts so far

Not perfect, but happy!

Let me know what you think, and if you have any tips. Writing makes my hands hurt so so bad, but I want it to be beautiful for the cards as it’s the personal touch instead of a printed generic message.

Have a good day/week,

“Why is there a kid in here?”…..

Did you know that you can recycle a bouncy castle and a paddle/swimming pool? Me neither until yesterday!

We are currently homeschooling again with a 10 day isolation for both kids as someone at breakfast club tested positive. This is not a pleasant experience, Colby really struggles with schooling, and Moo hates when I have to pay him attention. By the end of the day….

Taken from an internet search.

I am tee-total, so I had a bottle of Lucozade instead. I also had some down time searching across the net where I came across this company who make AMAZING bags/pouches etc. How beautiful is this bag (I REALLY want one!)

These bags are made from recycled swimming/paddling pool and bouncy castles, how cool is that. Use and reuse.

I considered sending our old pools in to them, and rolling the kids inside them first, but. apparently I cannot do that however.

You mean I cannot recycle the kids into a new bike?

Check out my Instagram post about this amazing company, and have a look at their website and Instagram page.
