Woo Hooo

Woo hoo, five more sleeps - yeah!!!!!!

images So what have I been doing to get me through this waiting time?  Well, the carpet shampoo machine got hired first thing and now the carpets look and smell so fresh.  Then, the girls turned up for our quilting day, this is a  new, growing group and experience varies but they are so much fun and just want to learn and enjoy the company of one another. Today was all hands to the pins as we basted Sharon'sQuilters quilt, yesterday Linda and I did hers and she got stuck into the quilting today. Days like this remind me of the old fashioned quilting bee, where everyone helps to get the job done. Once the girls were sorted I charged outside to mow a few lawns, we have more than our fair share of lawns here. The weather is due to close in for the next four or five days so it really was a case of making hay while the sun shines - trust me, they were long enough to make hay too. By four o-clock outside chores were finished and it was hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor. Boy I'm going to sleep well tonight and then it's only four more sleeps tee hee.


So, the reason for this countdown and the flurry of activity I hear you ask is, DH arrives home on Monday - yeah, yeah, yeah!  You have no idea how excited I am, six months apart is a long, long time and I've really missed my best friend.

Now, what else do I have to get done?

keep well, hugs
