The day was off to a grand start with the arrival of a parcel for me that I had totally forgotten was on its way. I was lucky enough to win the draw on Suzanne's blog when she made her 100th post, and this morning I received the most wonderful pizza box stuffed full of gorgeous scrapping stash, together with a 'champagne and roses' scented sachet. I love and will use it all - thank you, Suzanne, you made my week!
On to other things, and the beanstalk, as stated in yesterday's post, continues to grow at some speed. We had another photo shoot with it today, and, as you can see, it really does need a new pot and a stake quite urgently. One of the jobs on my 'to do' list for tomorrow.
A is very pleased with its progress!!
A came to me this afternoon, whilst F was quietly drawing and colouring, to ask whether she could borrow some saucepans and a couple of wooden spoons. The suspicious mother instinct kicked in, and I decided I needed some further information before granting or denying this wish. I had visions of unspeakably messy potions being mixed up in the garden - not that I mind that, but not with my best saucepans and spoons that I'd like to use again!! Turns out she and V wanted to form a band, V playing F's 1/2-size violin, and A on drums. And a beautiful racket they made, too!!!
Just a little reminder for the thousands who missed it - anyone posting a comment on yesterday's '100th post' entry by 7pm on Friday evening will have their name entered into a draw for a little goody bag, so if you've visited but haven't commented, what's stopping you?!!
