It is Sunday night and it is almost bedtime.... Hubby is watching Harry Potter and I have been trying to catch up on my blog reading - I was doing quite well until blogger decided to stop letting me comment on blogs. So I must apologise to those of you that I have visited and caught up on the news but haven't left a comment on.
We have had a reasonably quiet weekend, although yesterday was busy as we went to visit some friends and then had to do the food shopping and then Saturday was over.... Today has been a very quiet day - not much happening once the ironing was done; which is good as we were both quite knackered after a busy week at work.
Friday was my day off and boy did I need it! I had a doctor's appointment and then later on in the morning had a hairdresser's appointment, and I also checked the mail at the post box as I generally do on a Friday. Now why do I mention the mail do you ask... well this is why...
During December Nia from Caixinha de Pirlimpimpim had a "12 days of Christmas" post-a-thon where she posted about different things over 12 days and each day added a small gift to a stocking. At the end of the Christmas postings she then picked the winners. Nia had asked everyone to comment on a post about what they would like to win and I mentioned that I would like to win the little snow globe... I didn't win at the time but Valerie from Fee le point did win the stocking. She had mentiooned in your comment to Nia that if she won the stocking she would send me the snow globe... and that is what appeared in the mail. All unknown to me as I hadn't actually seen Valerie's comment!
And here is my lovely new snow globe in all it's wonderful glory... and a cute little penguin card :o)
What a lovely surprise - this really made my day. Thank you Valerie for your special gift and thank you Valerie and Nia for your generosity and friendship.
Last weekend I finally managed to finish the two cards that I was stitching for the February birthdays in the Craftbubble "Crazy for Kitties" birthday exchange. They both hit the mail cart on Monday and hopefully will arrive in the UK in the next day or so.

Kaye from Kitten Stitching did a post the other day about a conference that she want to in Sanctuary Cove, and for the Gala Dinner, which was fancy dress (British Muscians/Musicals), Kaye was dressed up as someone from a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.... well I thought she looked like a Gondolier and said as much in my comment. I guessed right! Yippee... little happy dance happening here in my little part of the world!
Well that's it from me for now! It is now well past my bedtime... Harry Potter is just finishing - "He who must not be named" has the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's grave..... have to wait for the next instalment to see if Harry saves the day!
Night night, sleep tight, see you all again real soon!
Until next time, happy stitching
