Two more Sleeps

I am getting excited about the upcoming weekend away at Craft Camp. I have spent the week getting organised and putting my projects together, it is so much fun. Maybe I will finally catch up on my crafting things. I have honestly felt as though I have been running backwards on that front.

A weekend away without having to worry about answering the ongoing question of "what's for lunch? What's for tea? I'm hungry, what's there to eat?" is one of the best things about it. Even though my sweetheart does organise the food most of the time on weekends, I still feel the pressure of it, not to mention all the little jobs that need doing and therefore interrupt any time that may otherwise be used for crafting or doing something else that I might like. Don't get me wrong I will miss them all a lot, but it is a good kind of missing, one that makes me appreciate and love them all even more when I come back home. I think every wife and mum needs to have a little getaway time every now and then. It can really help put life back into perspective.

Well I had better not forget to pack the camera and hope to post some good photos showing a productive weekend. Part of the time will be spent teaching my sister a thing or two as she is coming along for the very first time. I am hoping that she will love it as much as I do.

Apology- Life Sometimes Gets in the Way.

I am posting an apology to those lovely ladies who I am owing a Blogoversary gift to. I am flat out at the moment and feel bad that I haven't had time to get your things to you. Please be assured that they are not forgotten and they will arrive in your letterboxes soon. Just think of how excited you will be when that package finally does appear in your box when you least expect it.

Happy Mothers Day

Happy mothers day to all of you celebrating today. I was once again a spoiled girl and had a very special day. My sweetheart and boys gave me these beautiful gifts and am loving them. 
A cute little Coffee and Tea set from Ikea (this is actually a children's toy but really there is a little girl living inside me), beautiful chrysanthemums & lilies, Tomb Raider Underworld, latest Homespun magazine and a great laptop stable table which I am using right now. Thank you to my darling sweetheart for spoiling me so much I love you very much. 

He started the day by making me french toast and coffee for breakfast before church, then also cooked a BBQ lunch for me (and the rest of the extended family) and took me out for dinner with our boys and his parents and sister and brother in-law. He is just so wonderful I just hope that I can make him just as happy when Fathers day comes around.
Hope you all had a day filled with as much love as mine did.

Pay It Forward - My very First One.

I have joined my Sister-in-law in doing this and am so glad as I have wanted to do one of these for ages.

Here is how it works:
I will make a handmade gift for the first 3 interested people who comment on this post. I have 365 days to do it in...What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well: you must have a blog (come on girls I know you want to start one. You know who you are) and before you leave your comment here, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (just cut and paste this one if you like!) Ooooo! How exciting!

I would like to send a special treat to the other three who were kind enough to leave a comment for my Blogoversary so thank you very much to Blossom, Lil Sis (no blog) and Teena in Toronto.

Thank you once again for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a small message. It really is a great encouragement to me.

Anonymous Comments

I just realised that I had one of my settings set so that people who don't have a blog address couldn't leave a comment. I have now changed it so that anyone can leave a comment on posts now. If this is what was stopping you from commenting I am truly sorry and would love to hear from you. Because of this problem I have now changed the final day for my Blogoversary giveaway to Wednesday 6th May. Please leave me a comment letting me know how you found me and just to say hello.
