My mate Julie makes these fantastic cushions, blankets, door stops and draft excluders. Her business is called Totally Tartan. She also has two little boys – slightly bigger than my Boy Three yet smaller than Boys One and Two.
When Boy One was born she made him a funky fleece blanket with his name on it. And she also started bringing her sons’ cast offs – bags and bags of them.
You see, after Boy Two was born I wasn’t going to have any more children so I got rid of all the clothes as he grew out of them. Although even if I hadn’t done a reproductive U-turn, with a seven year age gap there would have been too many clothes to keep.
But Julie has saved me from having to buy it all again. Regularly she turns up with huge bags of gear for my little chap to wear.
I’ve been wondering how to properly thank Julie and the best thing I could think of was to blog about how lovely her Totally Tartan merchandise is. And it is.
PS If you can’t face more scratchy pants, overpriced roses or nasty perfume, there’s still time to get an order in for Valentine’s Day. Start hinting now.
