Good morning bloggy chums! Today is my 100th post, which brings with it the obligation of a giveaway (naturally). There will be two (not so) lucky winners, one for each of the baby monkeys to pick out of the magic pyrex bowl.
On to that business shortly. For now, let's go see what Sole Monday is offering up this week........
Ooooh. Look at these little babies. Hugely high heels, but (maybe it's the strange trainer effect sole) surprisingly comfortable. I did not buy these, my mother in law did last week from (as she calls it) 'arrods (most people know it as Harrods). She was shopping for a handbag and shoes (wedding necessities, y'see) and stumbled upon these, phoned me, practically screamed down the phone with excitement, and bought them. Bless her, I've got a good one there.
(is anyone enjoying Sole Monday as much as me?)
So, back to the important (and far more interesting) business of the 100th blog post giveaway bonanza (no, there's no bonanza - but it sounds so exciting)
G's winner will get this embroidered birdy hoop picture thingy...... (plus extras, to be decided)
Ginger's winner will get this framed applique girl picture thingy.... (plus the obligatory mysterious extras)
Comment away... the monkeys will pick the winners a week today.
In other news.....
whilst masquerading as an incredibly efficient and organised person I managed to complete a baby quilt for my friend's as yet unborn baby, for Christmas (oooh, get me!). In theory I intend to get most of my Christmas presents made early on. IN THEORY. It won't work, I'll slack off and have a last minute panic buy at Toys R Us (for everyone)
Well, I had a lovely weekend, the old folks came to stay, I got my Mum mowing the lawn, and my Dad doing odd jobs (it keeps them busy). So my work station area of the kitchen now looks very snazzy, if I was to ever get some decent light I'd take a picture. The baby monkeys were happy, being entertained by Mama and papa all weekend, W got a lie in until 11am on Sunday, so he was a happy man. And now it's the school holidays - G has broken up from school, I have 9 weeks to entertain her. (sigh). I am pinching Gina's fabulous bunting idea and getting the two of them to decorate some fabric flags to hang in their rooms. Hopefully inspiration will strike and I'll come up with some other ideas. Obviously I can't rely on the weather, I was planning on going to the farm today, but it's raining, and the sky looks so dark I can't see it stopping any time soon. Bloomin' English weather!
