i would like to put last week behind me and start again beginning with this glorious Sunday which just happens to be mothers day. even though there is still a whole lot of phlegmy coughing and nose blowing there are no more asthma attacks, vomiting and goopey eyes. geesh i need a rest! mia had to have the whole week off as her eyes didnt want to clear, but she is right now and will have to endure a whole week back at school, how rude!poor old miamoo conjunctivitis is such a hard illness as they are perfectly well other than this extremely contagious infection. she loved every minute of having to stay home for a whole week! still puffy and red after day 4!
anyhow moving on to more important business, i have finshed 5 babushka brooches and am now working on the kokeshi doll brooches. i really wanted to have them all done ready to take out to lilly cottage yesterday but the week that was put a halt on much of my stitching and running on less than 5 hours of sleep each day has really taken its toll. however i wish to have it all ready to take out next saturday.crazy cat posing with one of the brooches. i think it makes a bright statement, oh sew cute! (hope they sell)
now onto mothers day, i have a memory of being spolied last year but this year takes the cake! each present brought squeals of excitement from me and each present got better!
here is some of my goodies, flowers from our garden, two cards (the babushka card was a gift from clare from clares craftroom, it was blank so that my girls could write in it! she is one thoughtful lady) a gorgous china cup, the funniest tv series i think i have ever watched and a voucher to...i love how personal this braclet is and i havent even chosen one thing yet.
of course after i open my presents i was presented with breakfast in bed but decided to join the rest at the table. what a lucky gal.
i also recieved my fair share of mothers day stall goodies that lili chose just for me. SPOILT
now i am off for a walk around the local park while the girls ride their bikes. really wish i didnt have to work tomorrow....
