Father's Day Printable and Update on the Filth Wizards

Hellooo! Nearly Father's day! I've drawn a Super Dad illustration that can be coloured in and have a photo of dad's head glued on, plus a little fill-in-the-blanks greeting to go inside that is a bit silly, but fun. You can find the printable over at Alpha Mom here.


I've been a bit slow with the blog the last couple of months because I've been feeling rough as a badger's bum. This is because I am manufacturing another family member! So, come the beginning of November there will be four little filth wizards. We're currently all crammed into two bedrooms, so there's a house move on the horizon too, hopefully in the next month, and that way we can have the seven and eight year old sharing a room and Del (who is two on Saturday) and the new bairn sharing when the baby is big enough.

I'm feeling less exhausted and nauseous now that I'm nearly half way through this pregnancy, so hopefully I can get some more projects up on the blog soon. The kids have made a massive cardboard thing that I really want to share with you! Also, school holidays start here in a few weeks, so we're looking forward to lots of extra time for making messy things, especially now that it's staying light outside until 10.30pm! The house we're hopefully moving to has quite a dilapidated garden, so I figure letting the kids make another junk town this summer is on the cards.


In the mean time, have a lovely father's day weekend! I think we're taking the family to the roller disco on Sunday night. I will resist the urge to crowbar my pregnant self into some gold spandex Kylie Minogue hot pants for the event. Maybe Paul can wear them over his trousers for the full Super Dad look!

Thanks Marcia :) Finally I'm definitely rounding the corner on the morning, afternoon and evening sickness phase!

Congratulations on the impending wizard, and the house move. (Although, I always imagined a badger's bum to be soft and fluffy; it's getting there that I thought would be rough.)

Enjoy your lovely summer. I'm grateful to see a post and update from you.

Hi! I just found this blog through I-don't-even-remember-what magic of the internet, and absolutely love it even though I'm twenty and don't have any young children in my life! I've already made two of the milk-jug stormtrooper masks, and will make a milk-jug Batman mask as soon as I drink more milk. Making nerdy costumey things from household materials is one of my favorite hobbies, and you've given me a lot of inspiration for new projects!

Hurray for the new wizard! I hope your pregnancy continues to improve.
