Another busy week has ended. I thought that as I got older life would begin to slow and I would have more time to indulge myself, alas I was misinformed! As I get older life just gets busier and busier!
This week I have had a little indulgence time with a visit to my hairdresser, and my nails done, always a pleasure to spend time and money on things that benefit no one but me!
I also have a little secret to share……I am busy getting all the documents together to apply for my passport! So I guess that means my secret may have something to do with overseas travel you my have guessed? Well you would be right! Next year I am travelling with my sister to Hawaii!
In my excitement I posted off the request for my birth certificate forgetting to send the supporting identification documents! DOH! Although not totally silly, I have gently persuaded Greg to get his documents together for a passport too, I said it was just in case he needed to fly out and bail me out of jail or something? He suggested he may have to come collect my body! All in fun I’m sure!!!
I’ve had the application forms at home from quite a while ago, as I was determined 2011 was the year I would prepare myself for overseas travel, oh and getting that dreaded passport photo taken before I get any older and uglier!
Seems I will have completed my resolution without much time to spare.
I have some stitching finishes to share……
I’ve ‘blinged’ this stitchery wall hanging. At the Quilt & Craft Show last weekend I found some self adhesive diamantes in just the right size.
This little pouch/pocket comes from this site. shared with me by Kathryn, she knows what I like! I used my scrap basket to piece the purse, it was quick and simple with very easy instructions.
The buttons have joined the cardigan!
Completed covered coat hanger. Card Classes, don’t be fooled by their simple elegance…….. using glitter and glue is just not my thing! I made such a mess, and I was covered in glitter. The glitter on the gift card looks like sea slugs apparently!
Brooklynn is visiting today and while I was away having a blood test (the kind you have after fasting) and buying dog food, Greg told her his life story and this was the result!
Look at the smile on his face…….. She is beginning to toddle around although when she wants to get somewhere in a hurry it’s back onto her knees.
Yesterday I went with Leah for Brooklynn’s swimming lesson.
She is beginning to enjoy the experience, although the whole getting out and getting dressed is a little difficult for Leah to accomplish without tears, so I was the official baby holder while Leah got dry and dressed.
That’s about it apart from the usual mundane household chores. Thanks for visiting.
