You just know what kind of day you’re going to have when you have 4 Tim Tam Crunches and a can of Coke for breakfast… there was nothing I could do it, I just HAD to have them.
In my defense though I shall say by 8am I had already done three loads of washing – of those dried and folded two, made 4 purses with 4 matching notelets for each, tidied the studio, found Master Nine’s missing school shirt; as well as the usual watering and feeding of the children and getting them to school almost on time complete with lunches.
School lunches just do my head in ’cause as soon as you think you have it all sorted… tastes change and nothing you put in those darn little bags is like anymore… aahhhhh!!! Although I am looking forward to tomorrow as it’s a sausage sizzle so there is half the pressure off me. Then for the rest of the week we have leftover pizza from Tight Wad Tuesday… a sliver of silver lining for me!
Anyways, before I get back into it let’s bid a Fond Farewell to Colour #27 – Lovely Lilac. This is another of those colours I would never have declared as a favourite but I did tend to use it a lot in layering as it goes so beautifully with the Elegant Eggplant. On saying that then I guess I’d best order some before it’s “off the shelves“.
Just over 24 hours left of retiring products so please don’t delay if you’d like me to order anything – call me now!
Joke of the day:
What did the lion say when he saw two rabbits on a skateboard? Meals on Wheels!
Although we all went for a sleep-over with the grandparent just for last night, it was only the girls who returned home this afternoon. Master Nine felt the need for chess match – the fact neither he nor anyone close to him can play doesn’t bother him – he simply enjoys the “aura” of chess. I do think though when we have our next visit to the local library we may just have to see if there’s an “Idiot’s Guide to Chess” so we can get even a basic comprehension of the game!
And in typical sleep-over fashion, Girl Child and I stayed up until midnight, sitting in the dark, wrapped in fluffy blankets, watching chick flicks whilst eating left-over KFC… well, the raspberry bullets were finished and we couldn’t find the French Fries! When we finally went to bed, Miss Seven was asleep instantly whereas I on the other hand was wide awake. Not that it was a drama as I am still clutching my new catalogue close to my chest so I simply rewrote my Wish List until the wee hours.
This has however left me feeling as if I’m ready for bed now so I shall quickly bid a Fond Farewell to Colour #26 – Mellow Moss. This card also highlights one of my favourite stamp sets, Vintage Vogue, from the Autumn-Winter catty which I’m so pleased to say has made it’s way to the BIG catty – oh the joy, oh the relief!

What’s yellow, brown and hairy? Cheese on toast, dropped on the carpet…
