Portrait of Mum
Miss L impersonating me.

hi folks, remember me?  
Yep I've been living up to my self given label again and been procrastinating nicely at home.  I really have lots of things to post about, and lots of thank yous to give, and some tags to do and well it all just seems to be a bit much at the moment.  I had a nasty bout of food poisoning last weekend, which has been followed with the preciousness of having that monthly female curse.  If I haven't been about to burst into tears I've been reorganising cupboards and sending things off to the op shop. I am really enjoying the counselling training at PANDA, and it has led to some interesting discussions at home about family beliefs, values, myths we have about ourselves etc.  Miss L seems to be going through some sort of 'phase' ("you don't understand mum")- which involves a lot of tears and dramatics. Boy is she going to be a treat for some therapist later on!! Therefore it may be another week before posting really returns to normal here (whatever normal is!) so I think I might just have time to sneak in the October giveaway.
Leave a comment - anything you want to say - just hello is fine.  I will draw a winner and let you know on the 1st of November.  Good luck.  Oh, and the prize - well, there's a craft book or two and who knows what else I might throw in the lucky winners parcel? maybe some chocolate if I can stop myself from eating it!!

Hi Sam
Is the hot pink socks inside the strappy sandals a true interpretation of your style??
I do hope so!
Nice to see a post from you - I was about to send out a search party.
Your work at PANDA sounds really interesting. Such a worthwhile and thoroughly necessary cause.

I'm trying to clean out everything at the moment and I can't believe how much stuff we have. I try to do a little each day but it doesn't seem to look any better. Love Miss L!!

That picture is great - that's pretty much what I look like on a daily basis. Hope everything calms down for you a bit soon!

Hi,
Your daughter looks very cute, one of mine dressed in my work clothes last year for a thing at preschool-they grow way to quick...don't you think!
Love Melissa! xxx

Oh how cute, and what a photo to show her children one day. Hehe. I hope your week improves and that you feel better soon too. Good luck with the PANDA training as well. I am sure it will help you too.

I love 'the look' Miss L has made for herself. I especially like the hot pink foot peeking out!!!

I had some help from DH and we managed to sort out a room. We both just keep walking in now it's done and going WOW. It's daunting to start off with but so worth the effort. Another room will be attacked next week.

Hi Sam
I recently got the Broadhurst book (I spy in your bookshelf) but haven't had a chance to read it yet, just flick through and drool at the designs...
I am also a star at procrastinating! I have to present a paper at an int'l conference in a couple of weeks & have only talked it through once so far. Hope you have a productive week!

Nice dress-up!!

Linda said...

oh Miss L looks gorgeous Sam! Great to read a post from you. You really should eat the chocolate yourself, it is just what every girl needs!!

angelique said...

sounds like a good thing to enter a competition and if you eat the chocolates before they get sent out that ok. It sounds like something I would do. Cheers

It was a shock to see something new on the page when I popped in.... your daughter looks lovely.
Sorry to hear you've been ill, but by the sounds of it, at least the PANDA course made you keep feeling human.
Hope you feel better now.
