and my girls are cooking dinner for me!

the week that just past!

 this is where we stayed...isn't it cute?
 we indulged in this glorious food! 
more than once!
 fed a few of these guys
 sat in front of this, 
check out the size of the log of wood my sister decided to throw on!
 this arrived!
 check out the views (absolutely fab quite warm)
 did a bit more of this!
 checked out more views....
and indulged in a bit more of this....


it's here!

this gorgeous ornie arrived last week while I was away.
I unpacked the parcel today and opened up the ornie one..
I'm totally blown away!
It's lovely...
I haven't looked at the surprises inside the pockets yet
 (only the couple that fell out when I unwrapped it)
I'm keeping them as surprises for each day.

I have no idea who it is from, 
only that it;s from Switzerland...
so some hunting is in order!

Thank you so much to my SSCS partner (whoever she is)..
it is beautiful and will take pride of place when I do my Christmas decorating...

I can't actually put my Christmas parcel under the tree as I don't have it up yet, 
but it is safely in the sewing room awaiting the tree...

I like this...

this is a small excerpt from Denice"s blog
she has a friend that started this...

 It's been a rough few days at work and as a friend was talking with me this morning she said that since it's November and it's the "Thankful" month, she is writing everyday on her Facebook page one thing - just one thing - that she's thankful for.  It can be big. It can be small.
 (there is more, but I haven't posted that here as it's more personal than public)

and I'm going to try and do the same...
so this is what I'm Thankful for,

November 1: for dinner being cooked before I get home
November 2: having an hour at home with just us girls!
November 3: my eldest daughter! 
(today is her birthday) 
20 years ago this beautiful child entered the world and has given us joy ever since 
(with a few small hiccups along the way)
November 4: my garden
November 5: no work today, just playing
November 6: Melbourne Cup Day...just chilling!
November 7: that the day is over (busy busy day)
November 8: a laugh with workmates
November 9: a chat with a friend

OK so that's me all caught up...
until tomorrow!

if you are feeling Thankful, join us ...
there are no rules!
 if you don't want to, 
if you do, 
then post....
but most of all....
