I won our World Cup sweepstake at work :) ... I get a lovely little cash prize of about $100 (I can't remember exactly how much) ... just the right amount for guilt free shopping for our weekend away - isn't life good? DH thought I was nutty for picking Italy to win - HA!
No stitching update from yesterday because I didn't even touch it :( ... I hate that, I need my daily stitching fix! ... the day just seemed to get away from me - I did some soccer work in the morning, did some housework, took Josh to the shops so he could pick out some clothes and a book for his birthday - folded the HUGE pile of laundry and the it was dinner time. I then had a gymnastics committee meeting ... and that was my day.
I'm hoping that I don't even have to leave the house today - and I plan to stitch the afternoon and evening away. According to my rotation I should be stitching a Mirabilia so I think I will dig The Kiss out - she hasn't seen the light for day for I hate to think how many months.
Oh - and I lied about not leaving the house - I got a call at 8.30am this morning to remind me about Charlotte's dental check-up at 9.00am - which I'd forgotten about, so I got to wake her up, break the news to her ... and then rush down to the school dental clinic and hold down a screaming, kicking Charlotte. Even better? The Dental nurse thinks she might have some decay and she wants to check her again in 3 months ... which is about a month before she starts school - nothing like a bit of extra trauma to welcome her to school - so went from there and got the kids some games and DVDs for a few days ... so we're all set now for a quiet day in :)
Just remembered the other thing I did yesterday rather than stitching - I made the cutest little book for Charlotte. She is desperate to learn how to read, so Josh spent sometime taking photos of her for me yesterday - doing different things. I then put the photos into a word document and she has a little book of "I can ... " that she can VERY proudly read herself. I'm going to do another one with "This is ... " and take photos of all of us. So the day wasn't lost in boring work and housework!
