Toddler OOTD | Spring is coming

I haven't written an outfit post in what feels like forever so I thought I would share Lil's outfit today.
We recently got a couple of tunics from Miniclub clothing at boots and this is one if them, a beautiful navy blue dress with a red and white floral print on. I think this is super cute and was really cheap at buying two tunics for £8.

I also put some blue floral print tights that I got from Aldi last year. These complete the outfit to make it a little more cosy and warmer for the spring weather.
I put her hair in bunches today, her hair is getting so long and I love doing different hairstyles on her.
I think she looks super cute today and wanted to share it. 

Chinese New year crafts

Today is Chinese New year,  the year of the monkey, so I wanted to do some crafts with Lilly to celebrate and teach Lilly about all the festivities. 
First is the Chinese dragon, this was pretty fun to make and Lilly loves it.

To make this I used a print off which I found on the crayons website. Lilly coloured it in and I cut it out. I made a concertina out of some paper and stuck it to the head and tale as a body. We had some gold shiny paper which I used as flames.
Second was a paper lantern with the left of paper from the concertina. I used to make these all the time.

Fold the paper in half and cut off about a 2cm strip off the end. The next part is cut strips about 2cm's apart from the folded end and stop about 2 cm's from the top. You then unfold and join the top together at the top and bottom to make a lantern shape. Now use the strip you cut off to make a handle.
Did you do anything to do for Chinese New year? 

I passed my driving test

I am still in utter shock that I have done this, but I have great pleasure in letting you all know that on the Friday just gone I  passed my practical driving test. I am so so happy and proud of myself.

This was the second time that I have taken my test and from the get go I thought that I had failed but luckily the mistake I had made was only a minor point. After this mistake my drive went very well. I had the three point turn as my manauver which I had last time too, but I find that one quite easy so was happy to do this one. 
I never have to take the test again and I am so pleased about that as I was so so nervous. I came out with just 5 minors which was a lot better than 7 minors and 3 serious last time.
I am so glad the hard part is over, I now have a bit of saving to do to get my car and insurance but I will get there and have some independence for myself.
