Monday morning bliss

Considering i managed to blog every day in December i've done pretty poorly ever since!

Monday morning, my precious time! Caleb is over in the community centre at playgroup, its snowing/raining and super windy so im not going running; what a great excuse to chill out in peace and quiet :-)

The inlaws have gone back to Canada. They were a great help with the wee one but boy, i did breath a sigh of relief when they left. It was all just a bit too intense....too many people not enough room. We will hopefully get over to Canada in September.

Ive been working away on the birth sampler for my nephew. Here's an update
Im putting it aside for a few days to work on a Spring themed exchange for Jo over at Friendly Stitchers

I am in the last week of my 20's!!! A week tomorrow i will be 30! Ergh, i have a thing about 30, it just sounds a lot older than 29. Im having a big party to celebrate though. Since i was a teenager ive always wanted a big bash for my 30th. I've invited lots of people, im having a disco, ive got a gorgeous party dress and i can't wait! It's not til the 12th so i'll need to plan something to do on my actual birthday.

Off to get another cuppa....i love Monday mornings :-)

Sounds like just the sort of Monday morning to start the week! Lovely stitching progress.

Enjoy your last week of your 20's, they say 30 is the new 20 ;)

I know exactly what you mean about having relatives with love to have them but you also love to see them go!!!
Your stitching for your nephew looks great. Can't wait to see more.

It's nice to get back to a normal routine, right?
Great progress on the birth sampler. It's so cute!
So were you a leap year baby?

Do it up big for your 30th. For some of us, it does feel like an awfully big bump in the road ... I was less than happy about mine, but took baby Max to the zoo for the day and made the best of it. ;)

Mmmm - so in 1 week's time you will be 30?? Well, in 1 week's time I will be 65. Let me tell you that is a whole lot older than 64 and a lifetime older than 30!
I love your birth sampler stitching though and have a lovely party. I will just weep quietly in a corner somewhere. Irene xxx

What a great Monday morning, not many of us can say that. Nice progress on your sampler! Your 30's are really much better than your 20's.
