Present & correct
How gorgeous is this stuff? My girlfriend Jess sent me the link from London. Present & Correct are based in the UK and do the most beautiful paper goods - you must check them out!!
This sort of design really inspires me. The website is divine too.
I've had a shocker of a day.
Little Theo was a screaming banshee for most of it. She managed to poo all over two outfits which required washing her body down each time, spewing cottage cheese style milk 3 times at one venue (which was all over me too), screamed at every opportunity and wouldn't sleep. I finally got some relief when I got her and Nelly (the dog) into the car and drove around Katoomba and Medlow Bath. I have always wanted to drive around the streets in Medlow so it was fun for me.
Anyway, motherhood makes sewing and creating more than a little difficult and doesn't leave me much time to myself.
So, I am sitting here with a peppermint tea, a peanut butter sandwich and my computer. It's 6pm and quiet now as she has finally passed out. I am exhausted and can't wait for Steven to turn up to take over and make dinner so I can get in the bath.
I found out today that I didn't get into the Autumn Finders Keepers market in Sydney and it left me with mixed emotions.
Really, I wanted to be able to do a market soon and regain a little of my 'pre-Theo' life but I am also glad, as it would be incredibly hard to do a 2 day market with a 3 month old baby all the way in Sydney.
Motherhood is so much more demanding than what I thought and I don't seem to get much time to do anything more than tend to her needs each day. I am amazed at some mums who are managing to do their business and newborns though I expect they aren't getting that much more done than me!
