Wise Child

I was sorting through some paperwork during the week and came across a list that my son had wrote for me and my husband some years ago.  This is what he had to say:

To be helfy (To be healthy) 

drink milk before you go to bed 

drink woter when yor firstey (drink water when you are thirsty)

eat veje evrey day ( eat vegetables every day)

clean yor teath 2 times evry day (clean your teeth two times every day)

be good

carm down (calm down)

sleap proplee (sleep properly)

triy to not criy (try not to cry) 

forget about yor problems (forget about your problems)
pot clean cloves on (put clean clothes on)

let peple do your jobs (let people do your jobs)

Wise words at such a young age.  If only I could take heed of them.

  7. I like the sleep properly one it made me smile. I like your new look - I found if I read your new posts in my Wordpress reader there was no comment button so had to go direct to your blog site to make a comment, also as you know I often missed out on some of the pictures you posted. Lets hope this is more blogger friendly.

  11. Just found your blog, love it. I came across an old post of your regarding born to quilt book. Do you know if this book is available for sale and is it in English . I just live her patterns, have been to her web site but I think everything is in French. I booked marked your site, I will be back often, such inspiration. Kathy💕

  12. Hi Kathy, thanks for your nice comments! Born to Quilt was a one off magazine that I bought here in the UK a few years ago. It is written in English but I don't know if it is available any more. You could try to email Veronique as although the site is written in French, she also speaks English.
