one more onesie

Morning, morning.  I have got a horrible day today.  I'm off to the dentist this afternoon to have a half-a-tooth out.  I'm dreading it!  When they go to give you the injection and say "it won't hurt", they're lying, it does hurt and it takes ages!  I've also got a traffic jam to brave... they've set up some temporary 4 way traffic lights at a crossroads I have to go through to get home from work.  I was there for half an hour last night and you know what?  When I got to the front there was nothing.  No work going on, no holes dug, not even a traffic cone put out!  What??  Are they doing it to annoy me??  If any of you do happen to work for road management in the Rempstone area (not sure if it's Notts or Leicester), can you sort it out please?


Remember the adult t-shirts I converted into baby shortalls?  This is the last one from the pile of t-shirts my brother gave me.


I love this little detail.  This was taken from the original sleeve and I wanted to preserve it.  It is all the details after all.  This was the last one I sewed up.  The first took me several hours, the next 2 took me about half an hour each, this one whizzed through that machine, 20 minutes in total.  A record for me.  I am, after all, a lame snail in reverse, eh Sandra?


Here is my proof that I did indeed sew on the snaps! 


I noticed a mistake on the brown one I showed you last time.  See that flap?  Spot the mistake?  I didn't notice it until I was sewing the snaps on, but, you know what?  It's still like that and will be forever more!  They don't call me a perfectionist for nothing.


And a last shot of them all together before they got covered in Jacob poo and Jacob sick!!  I will leave you on that last, pleasant thought!

Was enjoying the post until the last line, and I had just eaten my lunch too!

OMG HOW local are you?! I'm pretty sure Rempstone is Notts but it's that really vague North of Loughborough area...

I've had teeth pulled (never a half one though!) and the injection is definitely the worst bit. I can cope with a dentists foot on my face and a big pair of pliers strangely.

I SAY it's the worst- actually it's the stitches. I ended up cutting my own stitches out because they were so so itchy and loose after a week and I didn't see the point of waiting another week to get the dentist to do it. So I got the kitchen scissors out haha

HAHAHA kids do tend to erupt from all ends, LOL!! Husbands too, come to think of it! Jacob is very lucky to have an Auntie Wendy to sew for him :)

And they grow out of the onesies so fast too!
