A New Optimistic Start - Kids Style

[Designed by my brother in law, Andrew Cheung]

Did everyone have a good holiday? I'm finally back to blogging and to work as well. Everything is back to normal, which is a good thing. Also, my health should be back to normal soon. You've may have gathered that my blogging and crafting went downhill from March/April last year. Well, I've been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid, which explains the unsual weight loss and tiredness. I'm starting to feel better now, my mind is also less muddled. Hee Hee Hee. Hopefully I'll be back to my healthy and organised pre-illness-self soon. The only down side is that I have to watch what I eat now.

What have I been up to during the break? Well;

  • spending a lot of time with my Rascal and her friends,

  • making gingerbread people,

  • visting the Childhood Museum again (I love that place),

[my hubs being silly at the Childhood Museum and lots of 1960s Sindys below]

  • eating lots of roast dinners, we also had two steam boat and several dim sum meals,

  • yarn sale shopping (I will blog about that later)

  • and sleeping really

There is so much to blog about this month, I want to show you the lovely christmas presents we received and a few that I made this year. This will have to wait to the next blog posts. :)

Have a good week everyone!

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your comment. The gingerbread people were made and decorated by the kids.

Hi Kyoko!

You should visit the Museum of Childhood, it is part of the V&A. We planning to go back again to do some drawing.

Yes, no more seaweed for the time being, although I did have a bite of some sushi, just one bite.

See you soon for some knitting.

Hi Ruth,

Yes, the Kids did all the work really, I just put them in the oven. They had a lot of fun making them. :)

Hi Jackie,

Yes, we didn't really want to eat them, but they were very yummy.

Yes, I need to take some photos of the yarns, I bought in the sale.

Sorry to hear about your thyroid troubles, and glad to hear you're feeling a bit better.

Love the photos - it looks like you've been busy!
Wishing you a happy new year!
