let me distract you with Maeve while i gloss over a huge faux pas . . .

Greetings all,
Slowly getting life together after burglary & even though i've put my on line Shop on hold for another month, i've got some big orders to complete, so i'm happily sewing away . . . in the mean time i'd like to draw your attention to this cool on line magazine, it's the second issue & all about Spring.  On a wet, cold, windy, Winter day like today in Canberra, it is defrosting my soul.
Now, i can sheepishly confess to one of the dumber things i've done in my life . . . picture this . . . birthday present shopping for one of 15 children's birthday parties we have in August (!!) on the weekend at a city shopping centre with 4 children who had just suffered shoe shopping for mummy (the new cute soft leather ankle boots from Country Road came home with me, if you were wondering).  So while i was juggling my shopping, birthday gifts, groceries & carrying no less than 5 coats . . . i popped by the chemist for some Voltarin (as i predicted i'd need some later that day).  Anyway, after dropping off various children at different parties all over the ACT & into NSW . . . i indeed had a stiff neck & reached for the Voltarin, um, in my shopping bags, no, in my shoe box, no . . . OMG, i've dropped the Voltarin into a birthday bag full of goodies for a 9 YEAR OLD GIRL!!  That was a sleep over too, of course, maybe the parents would find them & need them more than me??!!  Great, so this former pharmacologist made one of the bigger faux pas possible.
So you can all look in the mirror & consider yourself superior to this blogging mummy, unless you've also given muscle relaxants to a child as a birthday gift too??  Seriously, where do i begin to apologise to the parents??!!  Have way better weeks (& weekend birthday parties) than me everyone, love Posie 
PS still fiddling with the font size on my blog, hang in there, from my end it looks like giant print for people with failing eyesight!!

That's hilarious! It's a win win really, if the kids take try them before the parents do it'll be a nice early night all round...glad things are coming together after your break in. I had a quick peek at MAEVE last night, I shall sit down with a cuppa later while all kids are out of the house & have a more leisurely read...

That's too funny... words simply cannot express how funny that is!

Hope your aches and pains have disappeared and you are enjoying your new boots!

Thank god it wasn't birth control pills, I bet those parents were laughing...How did you get your kids to shoe shop with you, mine will hardly online shop with me when I'm picking them out shoes!!
