Ok, so hi. DrMr was away for 10 days somewhere far, far away and I was busy being a SOLE parent (big, BIG love to any of you single parents out there, you have my utmost love and respect) and looking for somewhere new for us to live, and succeeded with both, but everything else in my life got terribly neglected. And lets be honest, there is A LOT in my life that is already neglected, but you know, not to this MAGNITUDE. I barely slept, ate or spoke to anyone who wasn't birthed to me or stuffed with polyfill.
So we have a house, we will be moving in there sometimes in the next 2 or so weeks. Have we packed anything? No, of course not, so shut up with such foolish ideas. It's about 10 or 15 kms out of the city, instead of 60, so hey SEE YOU AROUND. And a 5 minute commute from work, so LIFE IS GOOD. AM EXCITED, but packing seems like a chore so I will leave that to the last minute.
Now I promised a giveaway, not the giveaway I planned, because THAT REQUIRES ORGANISATION, but you know... I am all about making do.
So I was SUPER EXCITED to win this awesome Simple Softies book from the most lovely Cath I know, Ms ChunkyChooky herself and the people at Penguin were awesome enough to send one for ME and one for YOU, so if you are interested in a simply delightful and simple crafty book, then lets get to it, my friend.
I actually really, really like the book because you don't need sewing knowledge (BUT YOU KNOW, I THINK MY NEW HOUSE HAS A CRAFT ROOM, I HAVEN'T HAD SPACE TO BUST THE SEWING MACHINE OUT SINCE THE HOUSE WAS BACK ON THE MARKET) or a machine to make super lovely toys. It's detailed, got simple patterns and instructions, so is filled with nothing but good stuff. Awesome! Want to win it?
OK - so DrMr was far far and away and finally came home last night, which was such a happy occasion. I am going to post some photos that he took while away, so have a look and see if you can guess where he was (I am not going to approve any comments until the giveaway is over). Just have a guess and random.org will choose a winner. If your guess is RIGHT, then I will add more handmade goodness from Georgie Love and include something extra. YAY! Ok here are your clues:
Giveaway closes 5 July 2010!
(ps: if any of this makes no sense, I apologise, I am very, very tired)
