i am not going to put this tissue holder in my bag cause it might get all screwed up in the 'black hole' that is my bag. i am going to keep it here in my 'studyio' where i can see it but also use it.
now don't hate me for what i am going to tell you next but... i didn't attend my children's school sports day :( i do have a valid excuse though. i work a 5 day fortnight which means that every second Wednesday i get one day to myself as the baby is still in day care and the older two are at school. now i am hard pressed giving this one day a fortnight up for anything and some sports day was not going to stand in my way. well didn't i feel like THE WORST mother ever when my girls presented me with these...
yes that is third! she was so excited telling me all about how she raced so well i was so proud of her but i also felt so guilty at the same time.
and lili had also came third in her race and received a well done ribbon for some other event. in my heart i have vowed never to miss another sports day if i am not working.
i guess what made me feel better was the fact that our mystery gifter had struck again, this time with a parcel for the girls
anyhow look at what was inside
three of the most gorgeous hand made dolls. the lighting isn't the best but you get the general idea of how sweet they are.
they were so thrilled with these marvelous and unique little dolls. they are made out of calico which is stuffed and then weighted at the bottom so that they stand up.
ok are you ready to find out who i think gifted these to my girls? a lovely friend of mine who lives in Ipswich whose name is Jo she has a lovely little blog called a birdhouse in your soul which she doesn't update often enough :P now i am not sure if she made these dolls or bought them but i NEED to know if i am right. so Jo, i know you read this little old blog of mine... did you send these to my girls?? answer me or i will have to hunt you down and leave my kids with you :0)
there you have it more of the week that was. i will come back and catch up on the second half of the week, which also involves a blog award, a gorgeous money box and a mad, mad party.
enjoy what is left of your weekend, smooches rosey
