I got another AWARD! Thanks Coffee Slut, you rock.
The aims of this award:

As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.

* Put the Award in one post as soon as you receive it.
* Don't forget to mention the person who gave it to you.
* Answer the Award question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
* Tag and distribute the Award to as many people as you like.
* notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

Alrighty then... I love blogging because it opens up the world to me, it enables me to reach out and be 'friends' with dozens of lovely people who I would never get to know in the 'real' world, in enables me to keep a record of my day to day life (with photos!) which is awesome too. Mostly it keeps me happy and stops me feeling lonely. And blogging makes me laugh, and let's get real... I NEED TO LAUGH.... cos I'm a Grumpy Tart!
I would like to pass this Award on to: EVERYONE who leaves a comment on this post! I just CAN'T choose a few ... and there are just TOO MANY of you NEAT bloggers out there who deserve it! So I cheated... and give it to all who comment today!

Now.. back to 'normal' transmissions.... Today:
Kids to school... yaa hoo!
Pay bills today... always a great feeling to clear the decks!
Dream of my new sewing machine!

And do some work on the Frangipani project! WHOOP....
Pfffft... obviously NO ONE wants that award! What, worn yourself out leaving me a comment YESTERDAY then did ya??? I'm going shopping....
Shopping DONE: I know you can hardly contain yourself with excitement... what did I buy???
A bloody ironing board (yep a thrill a minute there!), and a lamp to use down in the garage so STEW can see what he's ironing! ha ha ha.. AND:
Some lovely new electric blankets.. Poor Stewy has been getting cold.. bless him... so I got us a bigger electric blanket. AND I finally found some waterproof ones for the kids... SCORE. Now we will all be 'snug as a bug in a rug' tonight!
Stew and I had lunch together today at Sylvia Park, that was really nice.
I tried really hard to find me a ring today too... but sadly, I couldn't find one I liked. STEW will be so relieved!
BUT... there's always tomorrow! *smiles*
End of Day: another neat day... watching the finale of American Idol tonight.. I love love love Adam.... AND Chris AND Danny. *sigh* wonder who will win??? nite nite.
