A good week….

I hope that all the Mums in the world had a lovely day last Sunday for Mother’s Day, and were thoroughly spoilt. I got phone calls from my gorgeous son and gorgeous daughter (they live in WA and I am here in Melbourne) and earlier in the week I got a little parcel from my son with a Mothers Day card and a present in the card :) and also a flash drive was in there and on that flash drive was videos of his gorgeous little son.

The last time I saw him he was just born. Now he is giggling and laughing and having lots of fun with his Dad and Mum. Don’t they grow so quick? He is now 6 months old. I am looking forward to Christmas this year because it will be spent with them and so I will get to know my new grandson. Can’t wait!! It was so good to see him and have watched the videos over and over :)

My darling husband got me some flowers (my favourite ones) for Mother’s Day…aren’t they just so pretty? I love carnations.

I got a parcel in the post earlier in the week and I had to open it straight away…

It was from my dear friend Jenny……. it was for my birthday which is this Friday and I should have waited but I just couldn’t. It’s the little girl in me hehehe

I love the little cushion and it will be lovely to rest my head on it or even my hands when I am hand sewing. Jenny has so thoughtfully put lavender in the cushion and I love smelling that so it will relax me when I get stressed about things.

The recipe book….OMG!! the recipes in it are to die for! Lots of cakes and sweet things, and Jenny and I both share a love of vintage lace and things and she sent me this spool of 50 yr. old lace…how special is that!  ….thank you so much Jenny you have thoroughly spoilt me.

I was also spoilt from Diana and Doris who both thought of me this week.

Thank you Diana…I love the vintage hankies and they have a ‘V’ on them. How special is that?

From Doris

Doris is very clever and she crocheted me this gorgeous doily. She knows I love doily's and wanted me to have one made by her..I will treasure it for ever Doris :) Thank you :)

I am so blessed to have lovely friends and this week has been a lovely week because of these friends even tho I had to take my very much loved and appreciated sewing machine in to the doctors….waaaah!!

I hope you all have a lovely week and have lovely friends also.

hugs to all……
