Things I have been terribly neglectful about #4578

Thank you all lovely blogger mamas for your support, words of wisdom and sympathetic stories regarding the food struggles in our house! It definitely helps.

Ok, so quite a while ago now, a while before Christmas even, I was luckily enough to win a giveaway (WHICH I NEVER DO!) from the lovely Miss Alison Regrets. Ok, I guess I don't win many things, because I don't enter many things, because I only enter stuff I REALLY want to win. There is no point in me entering giveaways to win craft supplies as I am a hopeless crafter and I am a little lazy so if I have to enter something and then give a long detailed answer about something or another, I feel too tired before I start. BUT ANYWAY, I saw one of the wonderful corsage brooches made by Fran from vintage ties in Lark's blog of all places and rushed over to buy one. But she had a giveaway and I wanted won so badly that I typed a LONG entry and won one and it arrived a while ago and I wore it over Christmas and I am only NOW telling you, because I am Sally Slackerson.

Anyway, if you like them as much as I do, you can buy one HERE. Go for it.

In other news from our household, DrMr just published a book! (yes, he really is Dr Rock) I am trying to write a review that doesn't sound like it was written by a toddler. Hm.

Hey Sal, you are both in need of congratulations then! Oh, and did you notice that there are only blokes in the background of that nice pic of Dr Rock with Ruby? It must be holiday time!

Virginia said...

WOW! Congratulations. That's wonderful news about the book.

And I'm wishing you good luck with the food issues. They'll resolve sooner or later!

What a cool brooch! I love things that are reworked into something different. Congratulations to your DrMr and good luck on the review, I'm sure you'll do fine :)

Coooool! I don't even understand the title - my brain's melted in the heat! Rock has to be the best surname - you could change your first name to Iris and then take his surname so you can shorten your name to I ROCK. I'm going to be a Shaw when I get married - that's cool, because for the first time ever people will be able to spell AND say my name! Hurra!
