Surprise!

Published by at 8:57 pm under Uncategorized

Don’t you just love surprises? Yeah, me too. I got a lovely one from from a friend Gail, in the post last week. The postie pulled up, and the excited part of my brain started to quiver, especially since I wasn’t expecting anything. I opened it up, and what did I find?Haha, it’s Smurfette! Now I just need to make her a space for her :D. Gail, you are aiding a psycho! I really appreciate the thought, you made us all laugh so much. I really love the card too, isn’t it the most beautiful card? You are so crafty ( in a good way, lol).

On Saturday Cassandra was invited to a bird birthday party. She really wanted to make the five year old girl a gift, so I let her. First, I drew up a pattern, then she traced it.Then came the sewing. I couldn’t get the big machine to work ( I broke alot of needles recently), so we used the little cheap machine from Sams Warehouse.Then she stuffed it herself..And after great determination..she finished. I was very proud of her. Don’t you think she did well?What else have I been doing? Driving kiddies around here, there and everywhere. School of course…Oh, and I went on my first trip to Cosco as a quest. I took a photo of  me with the toilet rolls for the children ( considering we go through so much).As you can see, that although I have lost 19 kilos now, I am still a biggie. I can tell you though that I feel so much better. I sleep better, move better, and generally feel better. I am always a little nervous that I will wake up with all the weight back on overnight, ugh!This is my dear girl, with her own style. She has three quarter jeans under that dress. Long socks, and a black jacket underneath. She said that she is starting her own fashion. All I can say is that I am happy that she is always modest.  I love my Stephanie, she is such a role model (just maybe not in her fashion ;D).

    Steph’s dressing reminds me of Melinda…. always modest but oh the layering! LOL

    We went to Costco a few times as guests over twelve months and now have our own membership. We’ll probably only do 3-4 trips a year (till Ringwood opens!) but it’s worth it even though I’m quite particular about what we get. It can be borderline though, so if you’re thinking of joining, try it out a few times as a guest – feel free to tag along with us sometime!

    BTW – That first photo of you, with Smurfette really shows up the weight loss – well done!

    and hey! Well done Cassandra – great sewing! Very impressed here 🙂

    Thanks Narelle, I might take you up on that. I saw some things at Cosco that I could get cheaper, but I did enjoy the mini bagels ( yum..).
