A day for me!

I had a fantastic day today!

My lovely Mum took Daphne for the day, Lucinda had a full day of kinder and Chloe was at school. After dropping everyone off I started with some secret Christmas shopping, then legged it home to meet a girlfriend who had to pick something up from me. I then raced back to the kinder to grab Lucinda to take her to a quick meet and greet with her new school teacher, dropping her off at kinder again half an hour later.

I then took off to a child care centre to have a look around because I'm going to be working one day a week as of Feb and need to find somewhere for Daphne to go. It was exactly what I was after and they had a spot available!! My next stop was Amitie for a quick fabric fix and catch up with the girls - always fun and of course I came away with a few more bits of delicious fabric. (More about that in future posts!)

My last stop was the hairdressers for my first haircut since November 2006! I tried a new place just up the road and it was brilliant! They also offer beauty therapy services and it's all sparkly and new and I think I am going to visit often!!

Then I got the girls, thanked my Mum profusely and went home. And I just knew there was going to be a special surprise in my letter box, because I was really having that kind of a day. Sure enough there was a parcel waiting.

Violet and Rose bracelet

A lovely Violet and Rose gift from Jo. I admired her bracelets a few weeks ago and she offered to make me my very own one.

Isn't it stunning!! Thank you so much Jo I absolutely LOVE it!! There will be something special on its way to you next week!

And finally, I have finished the second and slightly different Christmas ornament. I like her much more and will spend most of tomorrow making the rest of them.

Even though it sounds like a had quite a hectic day, it was actually really productive and fun. I feel like the planets aligned and everything went my way and after a few really stressful weeks, it feels good!

Your hair looks so glam; a day to oneself is an absolute must at times!
Love the V&R bracelet, a sophisticated version of the kids' ones. I borrow my daughter's sometimes.

Hey supermum! Your haircut is gorgeous, what a perfect day - fabric, presents, pampering and a few things ticked off your list.
Enjoy your weekend

Sounds like you had a wonderful day!!! Your hair looks amazing and I bet that you are now feeling 100%, because dame girl you look it!!!
I Love the little ornament. It's very similar, but totally different (do you know what
I mean??) to what I ended up designing for my swap partners. I can't wait to see what I receive in return...
Glad to hear that everything is back on track for you now...

*Love* the ornament, *love* the hair - sounds like you had a great day.

hey - i'm wondering though, is your new childcare place near your new workplace ... if so, we may be running into each other more often ;)

Violet & Rose said...

Very happy that I could play a little part in your happy day! And don't we all need more of those? Great hair! And I love your windows. I notice all the little details. I'm quite anal like that.

Hi Louise, I am so pleased you had a busy but yet fantastic day. I must say with your new hairdo you look ready for an evening on the town, very glamorous I must say. Don't we just deserve to have a little me time every so often, you really do feel so much better for it. Louise x

Your ornament is soooo cute! I love Russian Dolls and you've done a great job! And how good does your hair look? I so wish I had long swishy hair like that but mine tends to go all 'flat' and miserable at that length... (And I like your new header - very summery indeed.)
