This is a piccie of my giveaway... its a pincushion kit, that was part of the pincushion of the month club a couple of years ago. I love the material, the ribbon and the especially the little rose pin that goes on top (seriously thought about keeping it :), but it doesn't really fit my personality...I'm not a prettily, softly pink and green female...in fact I rarely even wear a dress or skirt (poor Kris LOL)....so I thought it should go to a more deserving home. Just leave a message here if you are interested :)
Just over a year ago I started my blog...I had mentioned (in passing) being interested in doing one to my younger sister. Fatal mistake LOL...next thing I knew she had me on the computer...saying well what do you want to call it... :). My sister doesn't allow me to procrastinate over stuff she thinks will benefit me...and she is sooo right. For although I can be a little careless at times, blogging has been wonderful for me. I have met some fabulous people and I can honestly say blogland is on the whole a wonderfully generous, supportive and inspiring land. It allowed me to connect and re-connect to people again. And laugh...some of you are soooo funny. What can be better than laughter, inspiration and friendship!
Is been a big year for me...blogging being one of the best, Liam started school (and he loves it), Adam and Simon bought their first homes and I've even got a social life again YEAH. Then there's been the little things...a new lounge suite (does anyone know how annoying it is not to have a couch to lie on for a months), a new oven (we hadn't had one for a year or so after the one we had failed...we needed it for Christmas dinner), Liam's trampoline (it only sat in its box for 5 or 6 months). Adam noted on his last visit home that it had been the most change he had seen here for
years LOL And next year, according to the child I once was, I will be officially "old"... think I will have to review that...it always seemed so far away before. Hey I'm not even a grandmother yet...shhhhdon't let the boys hear me say that...I jokingly asked Simon if I should put an order in for one for my next birthday...tee hee hee. Thought better of teasing Adam though. Afterall I do have Liam :D
BTW...as you can see Liam likes the trampoline, especially if Kris or me is in there too...not to mention the good looking (eye contact) we get :)
Hope you all have had a fun year,
