inthelightofthesun This lovely soft and golden bento bag is travelling to the UK tomorrow. It's going to live in the little village in Hampshire where I lived as a child. It is journeying in my mother's suitcase. It's going to sit on the shoulder of my beloved 'other mother'. I'm just a little bit jealous that these lovely mothers and old friends are catching up without me. Their friendship was forged over the chaos of raising small children while their partners were off flying in the Airforce. I guess they've earned their peaceful adult conversation time!
I'll be listing some bags over on my insta page soon @inthelightofthesun_shop. It's been a long time between posts over there. This mothering caper has a lot to answer for!

inthelightofthesun Best part about scooter park?! The dirt.
I'm going to have to strip them before we drive home though
Was reading an article about a Choice report on laundry detergents and that water alone removes 49% of dirt and the brand we use (Eco store liquid) removes 53% I'll be interested to see how clean they come out now.
Also just so you know, I don't *just* read about effective laundry detergents in my spare time just listened to the Colin Farrell @nerdist podcast and it was delightful. Also loving the Note To Self podcasts too. 🏼
Podcasts are great when you're a chronic solo parent because it feels like you have adult conversations not just negotiations with small tyrants.
Ironically, I listen to a lot of podcasts while folding laundry...

  •   craftastrophies Do you listen to The Longest Shortest Time? 1w
  •   inthelightofthesun @craftastrophies no, but I will now! Thanks adult! 1w
  •   craftastrophies I actually just reluctantly deleted it off my feed because I had over 309 hours of Unlistened podcasts and that's just silly so I had a massive purge. But I highly recommend it and I think you'd like it. My fave podcast though is probably Pop Culture Happy Hour because then I can pretend I know things about movies and other things that normal people spend their time doing. 1w
  •   littleearthstories Hehe. I miss your posts! Not because you've gone anywhere. Obviously! Xx 1w

Wolf has changed his mind about his adult job from master builder to firefighter. As long as he doesn't join the police force his dad will be happy

  •   wovenspiritmakercreator I know where your steam went, lovely... they're called children I was wanting to commission one for my sisters birthday (in July), if possible? Do you do commissions? Do you know the brand Spell? I was wanting a Spell-esque-vibe-ish style... is that at all possible? Just say no if you're not keen, I won't be offended!!! xx 1w
  •   inthelightofthesun I'd be honoured @wovenspiritmakercreator I just googled them - do you mean textured embroided type fabrics or the fringe though? Anyway, let's chat xx you'll be the luck up the bum I need right?! 1w
  •   inthelightofthesun And yes, you SO know where my steam went @wovenspiritmakercreator 1w
  •   wovenspiritmakercreator Yay!!! Hooray!! Nah, not fringes and such - just those kind of fabrics! I want a practical style for her... and fringes (so pretty, but...) give me the heeby jeebies I'm not thinking identical to them, just that kind of vibe... if you know what I mean? 'Inspired by' but with your own flair!! Yes, let's chat!! And yes, I have my own personal steam stealers, so I know it very well 1w

inthelightofthesun A while back my sons were introduced to Jatz. They loved them. I'm personally not a fan, so I thought okay, I'll buy them for snacks so it's something in the cupboard I won't eat
But I felt bad putting them in lunch boxes. And today when I was shopping my with husband we stopped in front of the Jatz and he said 'I think those are pretty bad for you... Anyway I'm gonna go get a frozen pizza for lunch ok?' 🤔
So I did a little googling and looked in my cupboard and requested a sprig of rosemary to be picked on the way home from school pick up. The result - Rosemary and Parmesan quinoa crackers. They take a little longer to make than going to the store and buying jatz and they didn't last as long - gobbled up in a flash 🏼🏼🏼🏼🏼
But I don't think I have enough time to make enough to satisfy their needs on a regular basis. Sigh.
