Can you believe its May already!

Been a super busy week, I am always glad its Friday but today doubly so. Hugh has had swimming at school all week, so been there a couple of times. Had a big shopping day yesterday. I totally missed the female gene of love of shopping - hate it - but my daughter *sigh* squeals when in sight of the shopping centre and was no end of opinions and help as we searched for mother/grandmother presents for the celebration in a week or so. We have had storytime at library and today Katie had swimming and received her next certificate after dropping the drama queen act and jumping in the deep end. She also won a colouring competiton *shock* and has been rewarded with the cutest frog back pack. So I am literally falling into my restful weekend.

Finally, I received a ‘Friends’ award from Christine! The award is for “blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more.”

Aawww ... thanks C! You are the best - you and your bloody pure Canadian maple syrup that is gonna send me broke bwhahahaha, but that is a story for another day LOL! I want to give the award to:

Joni, Astrid, Annika, Maria, Lenore, Melly, Jorinde, Kami and Val!
