What a wonderful weekend we've just had. Saturday was the annual village Santa Parade which was full of all the usual delights. Bands playing, kids dancing, floats and of course it ended with Santa himself. The girls thought it was really fantastic, I just don't see what they see, clearly. Perhaps it's age! Anyway speaking of age, I've just turned 29... well you can add ten years to that if you really have to, but my mind is still at 29 thank you!
Fancy a cuppa from my fancy new teapot ladies? Isn't she a beauty? Oh yes that's a new CK cup too. I've can even offer you a slice of birthday cake, it's calorie free of course for you ladies who were about to say no! Seriously, what birthday cake isn't?!! And because I'm so nice I'm going to let you eat my last mint chocolate - they are the best in the box.
After you've eaten we'll have a gander through my new craft books. Gosh they are wonderful, full of lovely ideas. I wonder what you'll want to make?
My thank you letters are going to look grand if I can part with these little CK treasures. All the way from the UK just for me! I adore the little envelopes and stickers.
And how about we plan a new quilt with all my new fatties? I would think it would be very pretty in the lovely Sugar Flower range. I must cut some squares out first so I don't get too excited and use it all up. The others were especially chosen by my little girls. Didn't they do well?
Gosh I do enjoy my birthdays. Hubby excels himself every year. I get so many thoughtful gifts, way more than I'd ever choose for myself. I felt so spoilt all day Sunday, even though my birthday wasn't really until Monday, but who wants a regular work/school day on their birthday? Hardly any time for pampering with the family out most of the day. My parents put on a very lovely dinner for me with all the local family present. Very nice with my favourite meal served - roast lamb! Thank you dearest mother for my lovely pink peonys too - they are opening out beautifully.
I've managed to get all the girls to write their Santa letters already. I find it a good thing to get out of the way early and it's great that Santa knows what they want in plenty of time so he can put the appropriate gifts aside. We don't want the girls missing out now do we? The littlest one wrote hers with my help yesterday. She not into writing but it turned out alright in the end. It was a little hairy for a while! And the eraser she's asking for is the pricey sum of $2.50. What else does a fourth girl need?
Well I must be off now. Got to do the kindy thing soon and then do a bit of shopping for my cookie exchange on Thursday. Exciting times are ahead! I'll be back soon with some new makes.
