Toy Story and the Big Apple

With Tompom growing rapidly and with him taking his arms out of the car seat straps every time we strap him in it was time to buy a new car soon as he saw this Toy Story one that was it, luckily for us it was also in the sale so a great bargain too.

Looking very pleased to be in his new big boy car seat.
Although this new car seat is very comfy and Tompom is keeping his arms in the right places I did notice that the seat belt strap will rub on his neck especially in this hot weather so after dropping him off at pre-school this morning I headed off down to my workshop to make a seat belt cover. I've had this Woody fabric for ages and after a quick search of a couple of tutorials and a nice cup of tea I whipped up this...
Tompom was chuffed when I picked him up from pre-school this afternoon at least it took his mind off the fact I hadn't made his Wales cushion!

As for the Big Apple, look what I picked up at Matalan the other day, a giant ceramic red apple, not sure what I'm going to put in it yet - might be my secret stash of biscuits!!!!
