Karen Deborah, over at Fresh Fixins had a wee competition, the winner could win these lovely scarves:

So, because they were so pretty and blue, I entered! AND WON!

ABOVE: here is Karen Deborah's husband about to do the draw... have you EVER seen a more enthusiastic looking man???? I tell ya!

WOOOO HOooooo.. I won! That is the second thing I have won this year.. THAT IS A LIFETIME record! I am gobsmacked(amazed)! AND rather chuffed(stoked, rapt) ... I can't wait to get them and decide what I'm going to do with them! OOOooooo... maybe some sort of snazzy wall hanging? THANK YOU K/D, you rock!

Now... today:

Stew is home! He took the day off so he could spend a bit of time with the kids... so I think we are going to a movie ... and lunch out of course. I now have to decide if I want to go too... or stay home and have some quiet time to myself and do some sewing.

Decisions, decisions....

- we went out at 10 am... got a few jobs done then

- had lunch at Manukau Mall

- took the kids to the Harry Potter movie, I went too... wish I hadn't... it was stoooopid! Nothing like the book, and if you hadn't read the book the movie would have been hard to follow and totally disjointed. Bitterly dissappointed.

- Then we went to the Dr for our weekly weigh in. Stew gained massively, I stayed the same..... We believe the doctor's scales are crap.... there is NO WAY Stew gained 5 kilos in 6 days .... our home scales say I lost 2 kilos this week... think I will go with them!

Home now... and it's 5.30pm... we have been out all day!

Teddy is beside himself with excitement that we are home at last, poor boy. I'm not cooking dinner tonight, Stew and the kids have been scoffing lollies, icecream and popcorn all afternoon so don't need much. I had NONE!!! Quite happy with myself about that. Usually I indulge at the movies.

End of Day: it's been a nice day all up... time to put me feet up and relax in a comfy chair! nite nite.
