2nd Last day of Work!!

Woo Hoo!! Only today and tomorrow left at work and then I have 2 1/2 weeks off!!! Yaaayyy!!!!
All my christmas shopping is done, only have to do the groceries, am planning on going Christmas Eve, early in the morning, the supermarket opens at 7am. Craig laughed at me when I told him what my plans are, I told him not to laugh he was coming with me LOL

Over the christmas break I plan on doing some sewing for myself. I am going to attempt Bonnies Mystery quilt! But I also plan on doing some boring things like cleaing the timber venetians and the windows, 2 things I don't get time to do through the year.

Enjoy your lead up to Christmas!!!

On Saturday I made a bag for my friend Laurel's 50th birthday. Laurel & I met when our kids were in infants school (about 15 years ago) and we have worked together for the last 4 1/2 years.

Happy birthday Laurel!!

Here is a pic of a pincushion that I made for Kate of that raggedy one for a swap in our Yahoo group. Kate was very patient with me as I was very late with this swap. So I hope she likes it.

Ribs & Rumps

Last night we went out for dinner to celebrate Hubbys birthday from Saturday and also to farewell my aunt & uncle who have been visiting from the UK.

We went to this new, very trendy restaurant in Campbelltown called Ribs & Rumps. The food was delicious!! The boys love it here and like going there with their friends.

The gang:
Me and my aunty Beryl:

The men in my family:

Back - Hubby Craig, eldest son Nathan

Front - Youngest son Tim, Uncle Bruce, dad John

Tim, my 18 year old son:

My mum and her sister, talking as usual LOL!! -

This is the dessert Craig & I shared, a chocolate souffle with a white chocolate centre. Soo not on the diet, but divine!!!!

Ok, I have joined up to Pay It Forward on Tracey's blog. What a great idea!

This is how it goes :

it's the Pay It Forward exchange, based on the concept of the movie "Pay It Forward", where acts of kindness are done without expecting anything in return, just passing it on, hoping that the recipients will do the same and pay it forward, like a never ending chain of kindness...

How to proceed ?I will make and send a handmade gift for the first 3 friends who post a comment to this post, requesting to join this exchange, and promising to pay it forward to 3 other persons, etc....
I don't know what my 3 gifts will be, and I can't make them in the next few weeks, but I can promise I will send them within the next 365 days. ( I have extended this from the 6 months in Tracey's blog!)

What YOU have to do in return then, is pay it forward by making the same announcement and promise on YOUR blog.
