we'll never be the prime minister, but we're very crafty.

This is the sound conclusion my 5 year old came to one day after a long discussion about who the prime minister was and how to be one.

I am supposed to be making nappies right now. I have some fabulous pieces all cut out and ready to sew....

But I have been slightly distracted making this for our school fundraiser. The theme was arts and crafts.

welcome to the mangolime blog

I have been told I need a blog. Apparently everyone has a blog now. Is it true? The whole idea makes me feel sort of weird. I don't know why, I suppose because when I read old diaries I have written they are just so....cringey. But I do avidly read other people's blogs, and I don't find them cringey, so maybe that's just me. (Or maybe we were all just very cringey when we were 15?)

For me, this blog is more about the behind the scenes at mangolime, the nitty gritty of nappy making, juggling kids while creating, getting inspiration at 3am, and then losing it because I didn't write it down on that piece of paper next to my bed. I hope you enjoy it, or at least you don't cringe! I can't promise to be a super-regular blogger, but I'll do my best, and I'd love to have your comments along the way.

If you are looking here because you want to buy a mangolime nappy or other mangolime goodie, please go to my shop
