I went to Oxford Street to recover and to buy some treats for my Mum to thank her for looking after my daughter last night. So I made the most of today by going to 'All the Fun at the Fair' at Canarby Street and Liberty. At Liberty I found this display:
How gross...all that plastic. I think that is the reason more people are into buy handmade goods for their children instead of mass produced toys.

It was the 100th anniversery this year so there were extra goodies and we bought a few things for Vivian's bedroom which I will post later once I get to take some decent photos.

The photo above is my desk at work, homemade lunch and my first attempt to knit a scarf.
I find it so difficult to find time for crafting....I don't know how you gals/guys do it (fellow crafters). I try to squeeze time during my lunch hour for knitting, but only if it is pouring down with rain. If its not raining, I like to go for walks and Fridays are spent socialising with colleagues at lunch times. Then I try to find time after the rascal has fallen asleep, but living in a flat means that I cannot use my sewing machine late at night, so knitting only. Weekends are spent doing housework and spending time with family, but I do try to squeeze some time then.

Yep, its true, I've got my own sewing machine and camera at 30. I guess most people own these things quite early (like when they're 18?), but its a long story which I will share later (if people are interested).
I'm SO looking forward to blogging about my 'attempts' at sewing, knitting, making things, while having a full time job in the City (hence the blog name) and being a Mum to a lovely but demanding little madame.
I just have to figure how to use this 'blogging programme' and how to load photos onto Flickr.
