Last Wednesday I fell through the front door, well actually I got stopped in the drive by Gav!!!
Who pointed at the truck load of logs that had been deposited on our driveway during the day, & said "We need to stack these now encase it rains "
To which I replied "My hairdresser is coming over in half an hour to cut our hair!!! how will get all these stacked before she arrived?????"
"We best get started now!! Go and put your wellies on!"
So I then fell through the door & dropped my bags on the floor & what did I see out of the corner of my eye? But 2 parcels for me on the coffee table. Oh, oh, oh I have to stack logs!
Parcels will have to wait.
So I stacked logs until the hairdresser arrived, then I had my hair cut by which time Gav had done the rest.
He then had a hair cut, then we had dinner finally then I turned to the parcels sat on the coffee table & Opened the little one first.
Thank you girlie's, you know me too well!!!
I have been converting the jam pot cover set in the new catalogue since it arrived and seriously thought it would be my next purchase on visiting the Brighton treasure trove that is all Cath.
I then turned my attention to the other larger parcel, now I have had to learn over the past year that when a swap parcel arrives, you have to open it carefully & then photograph each step of the opening of said gift.
So I treat myself to ripping the brown paper or jiffy bag open like it's Christmas!
Then I open and photograph as I said above.
I had a wonderful Fabric Swap parcel from Catherine of "Kids & Capers"
I received a gorgeous handmade card,some beautiful Tilda Buttons, 3 pretty fat quarters, some lovely embroidery thread, a fabulous sewing magazine, some bright pink Ric rack & a hand made note pad all wrapped in a wonderful handmade Handbag by Catherine.
Oh how I was speechless as I opened each & every gift.
Thank you Catherine, I have posted your parcel today I hope you like your goodies.
So after my busy day at work, my log stacking, my hair cut & dinner it was a lovely way to end the day.
I hope your week is going well, I just watched David Cameron become the prime minister and now I going to watch Heston work his magic in his 80's cooking show.
