Sundays seem to roll around so quick... worst luck. Open Home AGAIN this afternoon... and as per usual we will be spending the day cleaning, tidying up, freshening up.... yadda yadda ya.

Had a AWESOME night's sleep! Feel on top of the world, sitting up in bed having just had my breakfast brought to me on a tray.... Stew is taking such good care of me. I am a spoilt tart for sure!!! Poached egg on toast, hot latte.....

Last night I ventured upstairs and made a pillowcase to match Griffin's quilt, I am going to put the 'unfinished' quilt on his bed today for Open Home... so needed a pillowcase didn't I? It looks lovely too... will take a photo later so ya all can see....
But for now... I suppose I better get outta bed and help Stew a wee bit.

TRISHA: I usually understand everything you Americans say, just the odd word here and there I misunderstand.... like you guys say fanny for BUM, here it is ya vagina!
Right.... onward.....

Doesn't that look just lovely?....

Well another open home where we spent hours getting the house in tip top condition for nothing! No one came.

Had lunch in town, and am now at home thinking I might just have a nap! So tired... done bugger all but still tired.

End of Day: got some people coming through the house tomorrow morning.... cross everything!!!! They have been here before... they are keen... hope they have the money!!!

NSV: totally on track with food, still no diet coke is being tolerated... and.... me fluid retention is nowhere near as bad as 'normal'... oh bugger does this mean Diet Coke was contributing to the problem? Maybe is was... shame that cos I still love the stuff... nite nite.

  6. Chris-

    Thanks for answering my question. Isn't is weird how two different countries "speak English" with such different sayings? Funny!

    You are quite a whiz with sewing! That quilt looks great! What is unfinished about it?

  7. Love the quilt!!! It looks great, you have inspired me a bit...I might try one of those one day????

    I'm so glad everythings going well and you're healing fine. I was very nervous following along but was happy and thought it was very sweet how your husband kept us posted.

    I think that's awesome that you had your fanny touched up a bit. After that experience you deserve that perk.

    Ditto on the cute quilt and good luck on the open house.

  9. The quilt looks great -well done Chris. Good to read that you are still listening to your body and resting when you need to. Hope you continue to recover well.

  10. *sob* I have lost everything on my puter..... EVERYTHING!
    I have no email addresses nuffin....
    Photos all gone.. the lot....
    Sorry I havent been about...obviously had computer issues...

  11. Hey lil sis, great job on the quilt, your a genius. lol. Make one for my Aleisha, shes recovering from cancer and needs to keep warm, no kidding.

  12. Chris - quilt is really cute - well done!

    Good luck for tomorrow's return people. Will send lots of good vibes across the ditch!


  13. ohhhhhhhh I love that quilt, well done Chris!!

  14. Gorgeous quilt!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!

  15. OOOoooo that quilt is GORGEOUS!!

    Hugs xx

  16. The quilt looks great.

    Sorry about the open house and finger crossed for the people looking tomorrow morning.

    You've been through a lot over the past few weeks and it will take some time for your body to recover. I'm sure your taking it easy but you also just have to be patient.

    Oh no about the diet coke. Hope you cover come that one. LOL.....

  17. Nice quilt!!! Maybe some day I will do something of the sort. Yeah, I'm sure the d. coke is nasty to our system but it tastes good. I do limit how much I drink of it but I think, one a day is not too bad.

  18. LOL I have taken over your Diet Coke addiction.... that is all I am drinking at the moment, fingers crossed for todays potential house buyers.....

  19. That quilt is GORGEOUS!!!!


    hehe. I say bum all the time meaning my rear. oooopsie.

  20. I agree about Sundays-- people talk about how awful Mondays are, but Sundays are unquestionably worse, because if Mondays are the death of fun, Sundays are the slow, agonizing part leading up to that.

    And for the record, I would never say "fanny" for any reason other than to mock someone or something. Like most countries, we have many words here for one's backside. My usual choice used to be "butt", I suppose, but now that I have kids, I find the word "bum" the most accurate (i.e. not some whimsical made-up term) and cutest-sounding coming from the mouth of a toddler.
