Aren't the weeks flying by at present. Hubby and I went out last night to a friend's 60th birthday party.I caught up with a couple of people I haven't seen in a while and ate food that I shouldn't have been eating!!!
I went out yesterday morning for a coffee with friends. They were running late and our regular coffee shop's coffee machine was broken down so we ended up in another little cafe which we aren't very keen on, but is the only other alternative in the shopping centre. I did some shopping for the long weekend and for food I was making to take to the party last night. I arrived home and about 30 seconds later our daughter rang and wanted to go op shopping. I had to quickly make the dessert for the evening and then only had about an hour and a half to spare before I needed to go to my friend Shirley's house for the afternoon. We had about a twenty minute drive to go to the op shop Rachel wanted to look at. She has been looking for a chest of drawers to hold baby clothes and we were lucky enough to find just what she was looking for and it was under a 1/4 of the new price of the drawers. We had to do a bit of juggling with baby seats in my car so we could get it in the back seat - we tried to get it in the boot but it was too deep, we measured length and width and thought it would go in but forgot about the depth!!! I then had to have her follow me to craft and then she took my car home to her house so her partner could get the cupboard out and then rushed back to drop my car back to me, pick hers up and head home for a quick change as she got called into work two hours earlier.A bit of a run around for her but at least she makes a few more dollars and can now not worry about furniture for the baby's room. We even got a small unit with tubs in for toys at the op shop as the young lad helping me to put the chest into the car said they had just got them in and did we want to buy them, lol. That was handy and only $10 as well.
It is freezing cold here today, so I've lit the fire and staying inside. No craft this afternoon so I may try and go for a walk.
