What a weekend.....

Long time no blog......we've just had a lovely holiday in Belek, Turkey. We got back last friday morning to the most glorious sunshine so decided to carry our holiday on over the weekend LOL. Having had enough lounging around I decided to finish my outside bunting off for the summer house.

Some time soon I hope to get my bears going again, I've got to sort my accounts out and then hopefully get some 'me' time. I'd read on a blog about someone painting a cheap office chair so before I went away painted mine a candy pink colour, you can just about see it in the picture. I even painted the fabric, I'll see how it lasts but its better than the black and blue colour it was.

I got the Easy Living mag with the Cath Kidston bag at the airport, came in very handy as a beach bag when one of our cases went missing.....the check in girl miss labeled it with someone elses details and sent it Greece. Got it back a day and half later but at least I had a bag to put my beach stuff in. Its now in the summerhouse as a bits and bobs bag.

Not sure what weather we'll get this weekend but enjoy it everyone!

Thank you....

I know not everyone, like me, carries a donor card or would even like to donate after death but I would like to say 'Thank You' to the person who did.....'Thank you' to the family that said yes....

Monday my cousin, 27, got the second call this year, come in we have a kidney for you. The last time she went down to theatre but the kidney was cut too short. This time it was a fabulous match, all went well.

Mixed emotions, I bet. Did someone have an awful phone call sunday? Maybe the decision to turn off machines....My aunt says the hope in the ward, of a future, of a better future is wonderful. I hope that helps the families.

Thank you.....

Winnibriggs giveaway

Hi everyone, does'nt time fly. I've had a few stressful weeks at work, good stress as it meant once finished I get my work done quicker. We went electronic! Far less 'paperwork' now. I'm also on countdown for my hols. I did manage to get my sewing machine in the summer house and started to make some bunting but thats on hold now until after my hols. Its a really gorgeous space to sew and the bears will be back by the end of May.
A lady who is also lucky to have her own space is Jenny at Winnibriggs. Love this Blog and shes only been blogging for a few months. Check her out and shes got a great giveaway too!
