Shopping past, gifts and future

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments and e-mails I have received re DH returning home.
Well he is most definitely home and  now just a couple of days after his arrival the whole previous six months feel somewhat surreal as we have just slotted straight back into our life of  friendship and routine.  Yesterday we even had the new quilt group here and truly it was just like before he left but with some new faces.
Now I really have been spoilt in the gift line and when the rest of his 'stuff' clears customs etc apparently there will be more - so I'll keep you waiting just a wee bit more the I'll do the photo shoot.  What I can tell you is that already he has given me some beautiful silk fabric - yeah, the real deal! What a sweety, and ... now I really got spoilt here008, look at this bit of 'bling'.  I'm sorry I couldn't get the picture any clearer as the flash kept reflecting off the diamonds. LOL, you have no idea how spoilt I feel, tee hee!  After 32 years together this man of mine really knows me, and what I like.

Now we are in the throws of planning  a crossing of the snow laden hills (aka The Southern Alps, or at least the tale end of them) next week to go shopping in the gorgeous city of Christchurch, and... what I'm really looking forward to, meeting up with Miss Deb for lunch - yeah!!!!  What a fantastic week we are having, I hope you all have a wonderful day.
