Today.......

Today I played at being a domestic goddess...........it was time!  I did me  spend a bit of tion the jigsaw..and watched cricket.....a girl has to have frequent breaks from the rigours of vacuuming/washing floors, washing....well ...you know how it goes!

I took down the Christmas tree and packed up all the decorations yesterday........I caught one of the bears trying to make a break for it while I had my back turned.....and he had a little friend ....sorry guys....see you later in the year (it will be here before you know it!)


 s

The jigsaw......just the sea to go.....and isn't there a lot of it!


I did take time out to play with my blog header....the angel was given to me for my birthday by one of the girls I work with......I love it........and I love the quote!

The kids are coming for lunch tomorrow so I also shopped for food....... visited with friends while I was out and about  ....and took my library book back......not sure what comes after the first overdue notice...but didn't want to find out  LOL Pretty slack of me not to have returned it earlier...I work in the same building!

Still haven't managed to get any stitching done but the girls are coming over for lunch/stitching on Saturday so might get something done then.......maybe......LOL

'Til next time.....................Lorraine

Love the new header. The angel is gorgeous and the quote... all we can hope for (I have 3 daughters and one of them has 4.. i hope they all grow to be good women) Your way ahead of me in the housework /Christmas de-cluttering.
Looking forward to seeing your 2012 creations

Sounds like the perfect week, a mix between r & r and fun things and ticking a few jobs off the list! Love the Angel!

A puzzle or two in the new year is a tradition that I love in our house. Ours aren't as pretty as yours. You're making great progress.

I love, love, love the quote. I simply must copy it and send it on to my two adult daughters.
Hopefully you won't be punished too harshly by the library, and you'll be allowed to run free and eventually get back to stitching. :)

Love the quote. I really need to put the domestic goddess apron on and do the whole cleaning thing but I just haven't been up to it. Maybe tomorrow. My decorations are down but I have left the taking down of the trees to Chris... he is a master stuffer and can get them into those boxes again.... but he hasn't taken the hint yet lol.... maybe he is waiting for me to clean the house first...

You're just a plain out and out goddess even without the house cleaning !

Your week sounds fantastic so far. I finally got Mr. P back to work Tuesday and went out for lunch with my sister . Planned to get some serious sewing done yesterday but that didn't happen ...oh well..Im on holidays for another 4 and a half weeks so I have plenty of time.

Enjoy your last few days of time off.

You're right, there is a lot of sea there, I'm sure you will be finishing the jigsaw quite soon :)

Waaah, my tree is still up! I look at it each night and it's so pretty and I just... can't be stuffed packing it all away! Maybe this arvo!

As a mum of 2 daughters, I love that quote too! I would love to get them an angel each - any idea where it came from?

Cheers - Joolz
