I went out with my friend Maria last week to Brand Junction and we were so excited to find a Laura Ashley store there. I went crazy and spent up big. I bought 3 of these throw rugs for my couch to match the one I already had. Got them for half price so why not.

And then we both bought for our daughters these gorgeous eiderdowns. We got them for $100.00 very cheap and they are so snuggly and warm and we couldn't resist buying the matching pillowcases which were also on sale. I would have bought one of everything if I had the money there are so many gorgeous things in that store. After all that shopping we went and had a nice lunch.

Thanks everyone with help for naming my mum's kitty. She liked the name my kids chose for her Milly. She came and picked her up on the weekend and she loved her. She is going to be one very spoilt cat.

Thanks for dropping by have a great week.

SO CUTE!!!!!

Is this just the cutest face you have ever seen. OOOHHHHHH!!!!

My brother and I bought this kitten for mum for Mothers Day. She wanted a ginger cat so I contacted the RSPCA and Lost Dogs Shelter. After waiting for weeks one finally became available yesterday.

She is so gorgeous and cuddly. She is 8 weeks old and so tiny. I am babysitting her until the weekend until I go to take her to mum's. Mum left it up to my kids to give her a name. So far it's between Milly, Missy, Marmalade, Ginger and Pooki. I really like Missy but we'll let mum choose out of those names.

What name do you like or any other suggestions.

Wishing you all a very Happy Mothers Day. I hope you gets lots of hugs and kisses from your kids and lots of pressies too. I already got mine perfume and flowers.

I'm being very spoilt today first we are going out for lunch with my mum and then we are going out again for dinner with my mother in law.

Tomorrow I will have to do 10 laps around the oval instead of my usual 5

Have a great day.

Well I finally got my sewing machine back yesterday after paying $70.00 to have it repaired which I wasn't happy about because I paid $90.00 a few months ago for it's 1 year service but it needed to be done.

Well anyway I was happily sewing away today and it died again!!!! I was so mad and swearing at it lucky the kids were at school. I took it back to the repairer today and they are going to have a look at it again. This sewing machine is my mum's which is over 25 years old so I think maybe it's time to update to a new one. I'll find out tomorrow the verdict and then I will go from there.

I'm very excited about buying a new one. I have been searching the Janome website and getting advice from people. Thanks Kathryn for your help. If anyone can give me some advice on a good sewing machine to buy please let me know.

I did manage to finish one cushion for one of my lovely customers before the sewing machine died.

Something I'm not angry about. Our leadlight got installed last week and I finally got around to taking a photo. I'm very happy with how it looks. I have this pattern on all the windows around the house. The guy we used did a very good job I highly recommend him. I couldn't get a good photo the sun wasn't out today.

As you can see I don't have much of a backyard left now that we have extended. My hubby wants to put in a swimming pool. You are probably thinking there is not much room for a pool but if we pull down the gazebo there will be room along the back fence to put a pool. Otherwise if we don't put in a pool we will make a nice outdoor entertainment area. We are still undecided.

Well can't do any sewing so I might go and tackle the big basket of ironing that has been sitting there for over a week.

Thanks for stopping by.
