Thank you so much for all the lovely comments wishing Ben a speedy recovery. Thank goodness he's well on the mend now and feeling very bored, but apparently he did manage to make some wonderful Easter biscuits today all by himself. I wished I'd had telephone tasting.
Unfortunately Rosie (our Dub) is porely again, this time it's a hole in the exhaust, so I couldn't go and fetch Ben as planned for a studio day :-( it'll probably have to be the Easter holls now.

And now to some Mummyboasting, please excuse me but it was a very exciting occasion.

Some of you will know that our DS is an editor for BBC2 Wales and recently he was asked to take time out from his usual job of editing sport to work on a new children's series called Telly Tales. It's a series of Myths, legends and tales from around the world, "A mix of animation and live action where children help create the artwork and play all the characters. A mix of multi-layered pop-up book and magical stage play."

The series had a premier in Cardiff, where all the actors and the series makers had a great night out, which sounded very swish. And yesterday the first program went out on BBC CBeebies with our DS's name on the credits, so you can imagine the excitement on seeing his name on National TV.

If you interested you can see the episode here. This is the Welsh version as BBC 2 cut off the credits.

Ok boast over, and as I hate putting up a past without pics, I thought I'd show you the finished wall hanging that started here.

I'm just going back to have a another look at the i player, aren't we mummies sad.

Julie said...

Exactly my sentiment too! Congratulations all round! :o)

I remember this piece - it looks wonderful finished and hanging. Well done you!

I agree - not sad - that's what mum's do and grandma's.

That is a fantastic achievement and you should be very proud. Sons, no matter what age love to have their mums express how proud they are of them (even though my 16 year old pretends not to care, he loves it, I know!!)

Every right to be proud, I thought the whole thing was charming, I may have to watch some more.

Sad? Not a bit of it - I'd crow from the roof tops. Congratulations all round. Love the stitched textures on your wall hanging and the border fabric.
