I still can't believe that Blossom swam SEVEN races last night!!
She swam freestyle (3 times), butterfly (twice), backstroke, and breastroke. Now remember she is not in the swim team, and is just a recreational 'weekend at the pool' type of swimmer, so she expected to come last in her events - but just by finishing the race she scored points for her House and that was her objective.
Here she is after race number 4...
...and after race number 6
...and finally back in the stands after race number 7 and the trophy ceremony to take me off to McDonalds for a junk food feast!
I am SOOOO proud of her!!
She got three 4th places, one 5th place, one 6th place, and a 2nd in the senior girls medley relay team swimming her worst stroke - butterfly!!
To top the night off her House (Chad) won!! They even beat the boys House teams.
This morning Blossom took me shopping for my birthday present, and we ended up at *that* shop. Oooo, there were so many new and gorgeous Shabby things for us to see and touch - I wish you could have been there. After much decision making she bought me something totally *breathtaking* and now I have to be patient until the 21st to unwrap it and show you. Trust me, you'll love it!
I can, however, show you the new coffee mug she bought me...
I bought her a matching mug that says 'Princess' because she really is my Princess, and I know I am truly blessed to have her in my life.
While we were browsing in *that* shop I found a very chic French inspired tea towel! "Mmmm....what can I make with that?" I thought to myself. Then I remembered some pink leather handles I bought last year and an idea was born....
Watch this space...I feel something very pretty forming in my mind!
I hope your day is a loving one.
Remember to tell someone you love them today - don't leave it till special occasions.
