PRETTY IN BLUE....

ABOVE: this is Gloria.... my Patchwork Tutor. She's in her early 60's (doesn't she look good!), she has 7 grown kids.... anyway, yesterday she gave me a little present by way of a 'Thank You' for taking her to Morrinsville etc, last week on our material buying trip.

She must have a great sense on humour, she already knows me so well, cos this is what she bought me:

IN BLUE (cos she knows I love blue): A Belly Button Warmer, NIPPLE WARMERS, and..... A WILLY WARMER!!!! What a crack up!

Today I am going to stay home (!), do housework, read blogs, and maybe sew! YAAAA.

- Teddy has his collar back on as he's scratched himself silly under his chin and made a huge mess.

- I did indeed have to take my new sewing machine back to the shop... I talked about that on Monday.

- Griffin is called "Griffin" or "Dude" ... but never "Griff"... just wanted to clarify that.

- THANK YOU Sassy (blush) for your comment yesterday!

- The 'sharts' are gone.. thank you Karen Deborah.

Isn't it amazing what you can get done if you JUST STAY AT HOME? I'm thrilled with how much 'crap' I have managed to do this morning.

I am taking Teddy to the Vet at midday.. he's just not a happy wee boy... I am wondering if his allergies are playing up ... even though he's on Prednisone. The vet can check him out for me ....

SO... it's the same old story at the Vet's... more prednisone.. then try to wean him off it. He's put on over a kilo in the last month, so he's going on a diet too. Poor bugger.

I'm doing the vacuming... I've piled stuff up on the furniture cos I also want to wash the floors.... Teddy could have sat on a lounge chair by this sofa... but instead he has slouched himself over it and his butt is on the windowsill:

He doesn't even LOOK comfortable... but then... he's pissed off with me for taking him to the Vets.

See? He's giving me the 'evil look'... Pfffffffff... MEN! (or BOY dogs, same thing)!

I'm knackered!

- I gassed up my car... at a petrol station with NO GAS! I had to wait for the tanker to arrive.... I couldn't leave cos my gas light had been on for over a day and I didn't think I'd make it to the next gas station. DOH

- I sent my old sewing machine off with the couriers.

- I bought a set of weights for Stew on Trademe and arranged payment/pickup.

- Dog to and from Vet

- kids picked up (lucky I didn't forget)

- Garage re-arranged, oil spill cleaned up (me car has a leak)

- ALL the bloody housework is done! I am a machine!

And now?

I am going to park my bum in me lounge chair and relax. So. There.

End of Day: didn't sit in the lounge chair afterall. Getting a bloody cold. nite nite.

  7. my apologies to Griffin, no insult intended.

    I should also apologise for missing the earlier bit about taking the machine to the shop - as I hadn't read you blog for a few days (and I was at work when I finally did) I admit, I skimmed (the shame of it all!) and the only bit I missed was, of course, the sentence about going to the shop! Silly girl!

    Glad it's all worked out anyway, and poor little Teddy, hope he gets over his sulks soon. He is so lovely! xx

  8. What a busy day!

    Best think to clean up oil leaks - kitty litter, it is cheap & works brilliantly.

  9. And I thought I'd been busy! I'm pooped just reading your blog. You are one busy lady!

    Poor Teddy, allergies are aweful, aren't they. I hope they figure out what's bugging the poor little guy. He is adorable though, even with his cone on.

  13. Do we get a fashion show of the warmers?!!!!!!!!!

  14. LOL ... what a lovely present - I can almost hear your brain ticking over with how you can start sewing some to sell at local markets - or on trademe :-)

    Oh poor teddy - hope he doesn't suffer too much with the dieting, we really need to do that with Tara, she eats everything in sight and then begs the kids for their food too.

    No more quiet days for you - they're too exhausting ... lol ... I had one of those days today too but didn't do much except find my desk under all the rubbish.

  16. Those gifts are hysterical!

    I hope Teddy forgives you quickly because he is just too darn cute to not want to pet!

  17. A woman with a sense of humor, thats just what we all need. What a busy day! That dog looks so sad, poor fellow. Hope he gets his allergies under control. Sorry to hear the sewing machine is acting up again! Good luck getting that straightened out.

  19. I thought prednisone caused weight gain. It did for my sis. A diet and itchy skin sounds like double miserable, poor guy. :-)
