3 mishaps and 1 Tag!

Thanks for your nice comments about my friday film night. It was brilliant to watch the film in peace and my husband came in about 20mins from the end and left me to finish watching it, so thanks hubby!
I decided not to sew whilst watching the film but I made this..

It was requested by Sophie for her baby dolly that she has. It is a crochet blanket to go in her buggy for this little baby carrier that Sophie has. I decided to decorate it with some little flower looking bits. I never actually thought I would say this but my knitting is better than my crochet!! Anyway Sophie is delighted with it and has now put in an order for some clothes, oh help!

Saturday was a round of ballet lesson, weekly shop, gardening between the showers, amusing Sophie and stitching together some more of my knitted blanket, but more on that another day.


Got to today and well it just was not going to be my day... it went like this...
1).On my way to a fabric shop I stopped off to get some petrol other wise I would have had to have pushed the car home again and I did not realise that the unleaded cable was wrapped around the diesel so when I pulled on the extendable pipe the unleaded one flipped up in the air and covered me with the petrol left in the nozzle! It covered all of my right leg, new trousers, fav mules and I really stank so had to go home and have another wash. Eventaully we set off and when we got to the shop it started to rain and we had to park quite a way away. Got Sophie's coat out of the boot.

2) Been in the shop about half an hour when my mobile rang and it was my hubby saying that I had left my purse at home, so he brought it all the way in for me otherwise it could have been a little embrassing.

3). Sophie decided to get away from Jezabel (me) and went home with Dad. As I walked back to the car I found my boot lid up in the air for all to see the contents. Nothing was taken unless someone fancied a box load of paperwork!! Due to where it was parked I got away with that, must not have slammed it shut properly?


By the time I got home I was ready for a stiff drink and a lie down! Instead I watched the end of the Monaco Grand Prix. Thankfully the rest of the day has been ok until about 20 mins ago when I stood on the paint pot lid in my bare feet whilst rollering the hall! Brilliant, ever had days like that?


Joannabags has tagged me which is only the second time for me so here it is...

Rules first..
I need to answer 6 questions. I then tag 6 people and post their names here, then go to their blog and comment to tell them that they have been tagged and to visit here to find out the rules. I must then let the person who tagged me now when I have posted my answers. I did need to read it twice.

What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was organising my wedding for 11th April.

5 things that are on my to do list for today?
Well considering the day I have had planning anything could have been disasterous but,

* Help paint the house.

*Buy some fabric to make a bag for my friends 40th.

*Read some of my book as I want to finish it before I go back to work.

*Paint the letter box on Sophie's playhouse.

*Baking session with Sophie.

Snacks I enjoy.
Gosh, there is not enough blog space for this one. I will have to condense my answer to pringles, cucumber slices with cheese, fruit and nut choc, berries covered in belgium choc (new in Tesco) cheese on toast.

Things I would do if I was a billionaire.
I have to say that since having Sophie and the surprised effect it has had on me it would be to do something about exploited and abused children. I already give to the NSPCC and raise money for the Children's Society. Since Madeleine McCann, the issue of missing children has never before been so high profile and I would really like to have the financial clout to help organisations have what they needed to help find them whether it be manpower to physically search for these poor children or to help finance detective work.


Places I have lived.
Germany (Dad was in the army)
Kent
Cambridgeshire
Hampshire
Dorset
Cornwall

6 people that I want to know more about
I have decided to pick people who I have only just 'met' via my giveaway last month.
*Scottie Acres

*Anglesey Allsorts

*No Reason Needed

*The Home is where the heart is..

*Smirley World

* Turtle

Phew!!
Rather a long post today. Off for a special evening out tomorrow with family and friends, but more on that tomorrow.
Take care.

Okay, I posted all of my answers to your tag!!! That was fun, thanks! I'm going to add you to my list of favorite blogs right now!

Turtle said...

getting ready to post as well! the doll blanket is so cute! We still have the doll bed that was my grams, moms, mine then daughters. Sadly i do not think daughter cares one way or the other as when we were moving she had stuck it in the yard sale pile! (i think not!)

Poor you, that was a day and a half!

Love the doll blanket.

I would love to do the tag but bear with me, I am not that quick. Vintage, Pretty & Shabby tagged me the other day with exactly the same, so I shall have to combine you both with this one if that's OK! You had some really bad luck the other day, I know what it is like just to get a tiny amount of diesel on your hand, you stink for hours. Definitely one of those days when you should have stayed in bed. But look on the bright side it could have been worse! x

Hey, I'd just realized you'd tagged me a month ago. I'd just recently done this tag due to two tother requests.

It's still on my front page.

In the meantime, I am, going to add you to my subscripations so I don't miss out on anymore of your blog.

Thanx again.
