BUSY BUSY... OUT ALL DAY

Going to be busy today... have to be out of the house till at least 3 pm... so ain't gunna be around to update!

First off I have to take Griffin to his Speld lesson, then when we get back to his school I (and Stew) are staying to watch his School Production.. which he has been VERY EXCITED about for days on end.  

Then I will be home after 3... the poor dogs will be thinking I have abandoned then after being locked out of the house 'proper' all day!  They have access to the laundry but that is all when I'm out.  Coco can't be trusted inside on her own, she does not got 'potty' inside anymore... but she chews EVERYTHING in sight.  Grrrrr.

OH!  And before I forget... I was talking to eldest Daughter:  Amanda last night, and she wants me to be with her when she gives birth to her and Andrew's baby girl ... I am thrilled to bits!   I love seeing my grandbabies born!  And seeing wee EMILY born is going to be just as magical as the others! 

So.. until much later today...

ONWARD.....it's me BIRTHDAY TODAY TOO..... 52!!!   Hell's Bells I'm getting old (ish)!  lol


ABOVE:  would you just LOOK at all these 'goodies'!  I opened Coffee Slut's Birthday parcel to me just now... everything was individually wrapped with tissue paper... it was so much fun opening up each little gift (buttons, ribbons, crystals, cards/envelopes, stickers and an awesome shopping tote)   I 'collect' shopping totes from around the world!  Awww THANK YOU so much Chick, you obviously know me very, very well. 

I must now go and do some housework.... then pick up Griffin...

Oh and while I'm mentioning gifts.... Stew (bless his heart) gave me COLD HARD CASH... so I can get whatever I want with it!  Clever man that one.  (I have a stash of fabric with my name on it at Fabricland in Papakura!)

WHOOT!  Another parcel from America just arrived!  It's from Sue in San Diego.... that lucky Tart is on a Carribean cruise right now... so wish I was there too! 


ABOVE:  She wanted to send me something to say thanks for the cards I made her... I said she could send me a photo of one of her Golden Retrievers, Jack, who I think is just gorgeous!  So what did she send me!  All of the above!  OMG that is so much more than a freakin photo!  THANK YOU Sue, so very much, I love all the goodies!   (photos, coffee mug, lip balms, soap and the most gorgeous Sweatshirt!)  Hee hee.. now I really DO have to lose weight!

That sweatshirt has a 'deficit' in the front of about 2 inches... me boobs are too big!  *sigh*!

I am feeling VERY  spoilt today... *smiles*

Took Griffin to his lesson, rushed over to Pukekohe to the Bernina shop there as they have an AMAZING selection of buttons, and I found the perfect buttons for the new bags.
Picked the boy up.. back to school for the production.
Sitting there with Stew and a couple of hundred other people listening to the kids production... and me phone starts bleeping quite loudly ... it's the CRAZY FROG tune.... eeeekkk!   Luckily everyone thought it was funny!

Anyway... I get home to find these waiting on me front doorstep:


ABOVE: beautiful flowers from Amanda, Andrew, their boys and EMILY-in-the-oven!   lol

End of Day:  awwww I've had a lovely day!!! THANKS for all the Birthday Wishes I  really appreciate it. Sewing this evening...finishing off the first 3 CUTE Bags...they look neat with their buttons on!  nite nite
