Scrapping and other crafty bits

My spongy parrot...



The word for today is sponge!! Now I have loads of sponges around, but none as spongy (?) as this one! I call young Shamus my super spongy parrot, because he takes everything in, digests it, and then repeats it!! Therefore, the new swear word in our house is crikey!
Today, when he had spilled his drink on the table, he muttered 'oh god'. I think. Now this isn't something that I say, so where he has got it from I dont know.
He also says - do you wanna brew? And also sings along to the tune of 'in the night garden'. He quite likes The Gossip - on the way back from school today he was trying to sing along to 'standing in the way of control' - and doing pretty well, I think!!
My head is slightly mashed today - it has been one of those days where you dont seem to get anything done, despite being on the go and not stopping. And I have a ton of stuff to get through tonight - social science and society's fascination with crime. It's really interesting stuff (honest) but I am not up for it in the slightest! Might get a bit o scrapping done instead I think, I havent done any for a day - and am now having withdrawal symptoms!!
I have been rather naughty, and ordered myself some stuff from the stamp man. I am blaming this momentary lapse in my currently 'OK' spending habits, on the fact that I have had a cacky day, and therefore needed cheering up. There's nothing like a crafty parcel landing on your doorstep to brighten your day now, is there? But I promise, I wont be buying anything else for a while, scrapzo's honour!
Hope you've had a great day folks, will catch up with you all now, thanks for reading!!
