End of term gifts and boating fun
Phew, teacher's pressies done for another year. Yippee! Five handmade notebooks for my middle one to give to her teachers... she wanted to make something special as she's leaving the school to move on, and so I helped her make covered notebooks. Hopefully they will be appreciated. The plainer ones are for the male teachers... thought they'd not want pink and flowers!
All things considered, I've been having a pretty difficult time lately. We all do from time to time, and sometimes it just goes on too long. I think I've had more than my fair share over the past year. But I've had a chance to think this w/e about how lucky I am and count my blessings because we've had such a lovely w/e. It started with my middle one's play at school, called Ye-ha and hilarious. Then a drinks evening, which I actually enjoyed because I didn't think I would - isn't that odd how the world works! Then yesterday was one of my best friend's birthdays, for which she has an annual picnic, always great fun.
And today we were at a water activity day, organised by one of the clubs my kiddies belong too. Best of all, two of mine jumped in, after being highly nervous about the thought. Brill. Here goes the eight year old:
And just sitting...
On to more frivilous things, a week or so ago, I was so lucky to pick up a gorgeous set of St Michael's linen, the sheet un-used and still packaged and the four pillowcases in pretty good condition. (Angel, this is when I texted you in great excitement, and got you out of the bath! LOL)
I just fell in love...
Now, my little fabric giveaway - Shabby chick, you were the only one to show any interest... honestly, guys, it's really nice fabric. Maybe I didn't do a good enough job of selling it. Anyways, that's great news for Shabby chick... please email me your address, and I'll get it off to you.
I also received a lovely package from Floss for taking part in her Birthday Bash, which was very special as I didn't expect a thing for simply attending. Floss - I'll be posting about it next time!
