She has grown up.
Okay, I knew this day was coming, but it always seemed 'a way in the distance...'
Blossom bought her first car today.
And it's pink.
Please say hello to 'Crystal Montgomery' (because all cars have a name!)...
Now, is that a happy smile on my girl!?
Even Bob-the-dog is grinning from ear to ear!
It even has crystals all around the rear-view mirror...
But best of all?
It's all Blossom's and it's all pink.
I have been chauffeured around all day, and *loved* it.
I think my smile is almost as wide as Blossom's.
Once home again, I had a parcel waiting for me!
Michelle Ridgeway was my guest in the current issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine, and the parcel bore her name as the sender.
You see, in Australia every year two of our states, New South Wales and Queensland, go head to head in rugby league football for the "State of Origin" trophy. They play three games, each two weeks apart, and the teams are made up of players from their 'state of origin' - either New South Wales or Queensland.
New South Wales are known as the BLUES, and Queensland is known as the MAROONS.
Now, Michelle is a Maroon, and I am a Blue, so we had a wager on who would win the first of the three games this month. The loser was to post the winner a block of Cadbury Chocolate.
Can you guess who won that first game?
The BLUES! \o/
So my parcel contained...
But cheeky Michelle had wrapped the chocolate in maroon ribbons!
I'll forgive her though, because also in the parcel was one of her gorgeous patterns that I bought last week...
...and these beautiful fabrics as a gift.
Thanks Michelle. xxx
I wonder who'll be posting the chocolate away after game 2?????
I think after a couple of big days with Blossom I need to get back to work.
It was fun while it lasted, but now it's time to earn a living again.
(it sure helps that I have some chocolate!)
Before I go, I have a frequently requested pattern as a freebie in my Free Friday Newsletter tomorrow.
