Long ago in a galaxy far, far away .....

I ran a giveaway.

This lovely lady won and has been patiently waiting and waiting and waiting.
She must have been wondering whether this was some sort of scam as the months have ticked by and nothing has arrived.

But at last, with kids at school and some time on my hands (ie chosing to ignore the dirty clothes, floors and bathrooms), Australia Post delivered these goodies to her on Monday.
Thank you for your patience Hilary. I hope you enjoy them !!
(Next time there is a giveaway, I promise to be a little more prompt with the follow through ....)

A red bag

This one was a special request from a girlfriend's Mum who is now on her way home to the UK.

The photo's don't really show how lovely the red is - and all girls love a bit of red, don't we ?? (especially if it is a pair of shoes...)

It was based on this pattern.

Hope you enjoy it, Pearl, and have safe trip home!



PS Hilary - I promise you're next .....

Slip, Slop ...Ouch

This is what you get when you're slack about the Slip, Slop, Slap*.

Slip, Slop, Snip and off to pathology to make sure they're not slip, slop, ugly.

Now for a couple of days I am a slip, slop, freakshow sitting on the couch with a quilt or embarrassing my kids at school and sport pick ups!

(PS. Don't forget your hat!)

* For those that don't know it's an anti-skin cancer campaign.

The perfect man

If you want something done properly ... do it yourself!
Ha, if only it were that simple.

Found on Etsy and designed by Melbourne girl Sandra Eterovic.

It's going to be a year of change here.
A big change started today.
My smallest joined the bigs and went to school.
Lots of excitement and no need for hand holding (from her anyway).
A really big smile, a quick kiss and she was off ... leaving her Mum feeling quite lost.
When she was 3 and ferocious I would count down the days.
Now the day has come ... and I'm not cheering and doing the happy dance that I had always imagined. I'm a bit lost and do miss her.
I have a had a little person attached to me for over 10 years.
She did reassure me last week that at least I would have the dog and the goldfish to keep me company.
Hmmm, change ... sometimes it takes a bit to get used to.
