Weekend Wrap!

The market on Saturday was a huge success, I had loads of fun and it was great chatting to some of the locals.......some of which had no idea that I lived here!

Now I have to get all geared up to do it all again in another few weeks, but first because the last two advent calendars went really well down at Shop Handmade and I've had a few emails requesting more, I thought I'd better get crackin' on another couple! This time they should be much quicker, or should I say less stressful because I have the pattern worked out and I know exactly what to do...........well that's the plan anyway!
Here is a funny or maybe not so funny story I just have to tell! Back to Saturday morning the morning of the markets, my husband had the kids and had to deal with all their activities, which doesn't hurt him to do every now and then, they had quite a busy day with cricket, riding lessons, birthday present shopping for little girl and a birthday party to get ready for..........average day for most mum's! Well he thought he'd get a little domestic and clean up a little in the laundry before he took the bins into the tip after dropping Ryan off at cricket. This was a nice surprise for me when I got home on Saturday afternoon, that was until I was ironing all the school uniforms for the kids yesterday and noticed that Megan only had one dress! I searched everywhere, in the car thinking that she left it in there after little athletics, under her bed, under my bed, everywhere! It was driving me crazy until I realized that it was in a plastic bag on the laundry floor waiting to be washed! Guess where it is now?

What can one say! Its great that he helped out! But you really gotta take a bit of notice about what your throwing out!! haha
Similar thing happened to a friend in Moree. The hubby used to make a heap of cash and he would store it in coles bags in the bottom of the wardrobe, so the wife found out when she threw $10,000 worth into a fire thinking it was rubbish!! Who keeps that kinda cash in a plastic bag in the cupboard!!!

Oh no, your washing was taken to the tip??!! That is SO totally something my husband would do on the on load of washing a year he does. Not because he's lazy, he's not normally around & i'm obsessed with washing. Noooo!!
Oh darling, good luck!!
