PINK RIBBON BREAKFAST

ABOVE:  This morning will be my first ever time attending a Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
It is a fundraiser event for Breast Cancer.

First thing I have to do is pick up a platter of food from a cafe close to my home and take it down to the venue.

Then I'm coming home to get ready.  Then back as a guest.  I hope it's a lovely morning.

The lady who had a go at me yesterday is going to be there too... so I am hoping we are not at the same table... if we are I am moving for bloody sure.

I HATE CONFRONTATIONS, I actually end up feeling physically sick!  So... I do hope I actually enjoy the morning.

Once I'm home I shall be sewing... best way for me to wind down.

So, that's me for now.  Fingers crossed for a good update later.

OH.... I am utterly in love with this song:



Enjoy.  You're welcome.  *smiles*

ONWARD...

2.41 pm and I'm home.
I was so busy helping set up, pick up food and so on I had no time to worry about 'who' was there or not.
And not was how it turned out to be... AS IN... the person I was upset with was not there. 

So, it was a really lovely event, I'm sure we raised a very good amount for Breast Cancer New Zealand.  Total tally is not known yet.

I sat next to 'C' and she won an awesome auction, then I needed to move (too hot in the sun), so I went and sat next to 'R'... and blow me down... she won TWO of the raffles!!!!  And she won the 2 Pink Wonky House Placemats I donated too!!!  


 ABOVE:  My dear friend Sue T... she went in her pyjamas... and rollers in her hair.  What a hoot!





 ABOVE:  The 'grazing' tables are such a fantastic idea!  Like platters, but just food on the tables ...  we had PLENTY of food!
All of it was donated too.  There's so many generous people eh?



 ABOVE:  We all got a t-shirt to decorate. Lots of fun, lots of boobs featured.  *smiles*



and there ends my wrap up on the event.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  

Now I'm going to chill out for a little while, then do some sewing I think.

Forgot to mention, when I got home my phone started pinging... wi-fi kicked in!
And I had 2 private messages from the lady who upset me so much yesterday.
I was really hesitant to open them, sure it would be more of the same.

But no.  Thank goodness.  She'd had a night to think on what she'd said, and she apologised.  It was a kinda back handed apology, as she still reiterated her opinion on what went down... but I accepted her apology as it was the right thing to do.

So, while I'm still a bit annoyed about it all, I've learnt a valuable lesson.  Keep my mouth shut.
You want to question a walk for whatever reason... DON'T.

I have almost finished that large Autumn Tree Runner... will be able to show you tomorrow all going well.

Tomorrow!  I do my first short shift at the rest home.  Learning the laundry routine. I'll probably have nightmares tonight about blowing the bloody washing machine up!


ABOVE:  Looks a bit like this, like you need a license to even open the door!  

Stew has cooked dinner tonight, he's used left over spag bol meat from last night, and turned it into a Shepard's pie with a layer of veges in it.  My mouth is watering.  I'm a bit hungry!

So Stew pulls his dinner out of the oven, and says "Well???  Aren't you going to take a photo?"... so of course I do!

ABOVE:  It was as yummy as it looked and smelled I assure you!

And now... it's time to sign off for the day, catch ya tomorrow.
