Did anyone else have the storm over the weekend? We live on top of a hill, and it is windy at the best of times, but the storm was awful. I could hear it whipping around the house, the dustbin lids went flying, clanging their way across stones. Sadly the storm has ruined my garden, it's very young and not at all established, we only planted it last March. My cordylines are all wrecked, the Jasmines have been wrenched from the trellis - so feeling rather down.
Only way I could think off to make me feel better was, a bit of retail therapy, no not for me - but ribbons!!!! So a nice big order has been placed for the Grosgrain Swiss Dot ribbons, our stocks had become rather depleted after the Christmas rush. It made me feel much better, and if I sell the ribbons I can go and buy more plants!!! Hurrray.
Playing with Sydney and Mollie after school also cheered me up, and I made them both carry cots for their babies - boxes with ribbon handles, well what else. Time goes so quickly when I am having fun and we had forgotton to do the Friday FREEBIE draw. So it was all a bit of a rush before they all went home. The winner of a bundle of Valentine ribbon is.........
.....Mollie had run off with the "Bingo" bag but a least she had left the winning number...
......who is number 10?.....
Number 10 = Louise
Oooh Yes! I would LOVE to win some of those!
