Some very kind person sent me a Christmas card with a voucher in it so spend at Charmed Cards and Crafts so I dithered around yesterday and placed my order, spent my voucher...and ahem...a little bit more! What a lovely boost this morning when the postie knocked at my door with my goodies. What fantastic service-thank you so much!!!
Oh my goodness - what to try first!!!! What a dilemma!
After opening my wonderful new stash, I had to leave it as we had booked tickets to the cinema. Amelia didn't really enjoy the film as much as she has done in the past and I couldn't really concentrate on the film as I was trying to keep Amelia quiet and happy. Came out and then the children started squabbling again as soon as we were in the car. By the time we got home I was feeling pretty fed up ! Walked into the hallway, postie had been again leaving me with two stamps from Toodles & Binks...whoo hoo...Thank you Kay!!
Chris was laughing, he stepped to oneside and sitting in the hall was a large box, a Dyson box, and stuck to the side was a verse!
To Adele & Chris
We're sorry this is late
For the sale we had to wait
You can now hoover through like a breeze
and stay up off your knees
lots of love Mum & Dad!
Well, what did I do....I cried!!
(Ages ago, when I was having a particually hectic week, Mum came over while I was at work, without me knowing and hoovered the front room for me. She commented that she couldn't get it to work very well and I explained the best way to get it to work was not to use it as an upright, but use the hose....I explained I got down on my hands and knees. Not good at all for my back or my knees especially now we have the extension- I simply cannot hoover through the whole house the same day!)
Chris and Jack have gone out again now, waiting patiently for them to come back so we can have a cuppa and a cuddle....pull myself together a bit...and then try out the new hoover!!
Sad life I lead!
