So, um, look what the postie brought. More Spoonflower organic cotton knit.
They're having a free shipping offer soon, even on international orders. I found that out after this package arrived of course. But nyah nyah, mine's here already.
Tempting as it is to just sit around stroking this fabric lovingly, I knew I had to get working on it and justify my splurge.
Pattern was Ottobre Best t-shirts yet again (I'm certainly getting my money's worth from this pattern!), but this time I went for the straight-cut version rather than the more fitted one.
On a completely different note, we've had our first brush with head lice this week (brush - geddit?).
I was in the shower with Clem and noticed something in his hair. I think it's pretty amazing actually that we've managed ten years of lice-free parenting until now. Pure chance I would imagine.
I posted on Facebook about it and the flood of marvellous advice from experienced friends has been overwhelming. Tiny little buggers incite some very strong feelings!
So I think I've got the whole 'how to break the cycle' thing sussed, but time will tell. We're using only natural products with teatree oil, eucalyptus oil etc but theoretically they should be more than adequate.
It was a little tempting just to get the clippers out and shave dear Clemmy's head to get rid of all the teeny, tiny, clingy lice eggs... but I don't think I could do that to his curls.
After rinsing out some lice treatment, he was walking very, very slowly and carefully out of the shower. "Hurry up," I said impatiently. "I can't, I've got eggs in my hair!" says he.
(This is the boy who recently had two bee stings in three days, both times while holding an egg from the chooks in each hand, and didn't drop a single one.)
Right... so I've just brought the topic around to yucky bugs again. I hope your week has been bug-free!
