Well a few weeks ago i started entering lots of competitions, reckoned somebody's got to win them - anyway, it has come up trumps! I got an email a couple of weeks ago to say that we had won a family holiday to either Greece, Turkey or Morocco - i was a bit sceptical at first as you would be but then i realised i had actually entered this comp (it was through Lidl in associatio with Walkers crisps) and all the details matched up.

We decided on Turkey as we haven't been there before and everyone i spoke to said it was lovely - i've had a couple of emails since and we are just awaiting the booking confirmation to stay here - Arum Hotel -. We chose to go next summer in the school hols, so we are flying out 30th June from Glasgow for a week - I am so excited!!!!!

The kids had been asking if we were going anywhere but i had had to explain to them that we couldn't afford it for next summer, so this has just come at the right time - we've had a pretty crap year this year what with one thing and another so this couldn't have come at a better time - now i just need to win some spending money lol!!

No stitchy pics to show at the moment - working on a couple of Christmas exchanges so they will have to wait till they have been received.. as it is the start of the month tomorrow i'll set some goals -

1. finish F&S christmas square and post
2. finish Friendly Stitchers exchange and post
3. start back on rotation - birth sampler, joe's stocking, Chatelaine St. Pete's

sunday stitching

okay i have been sorely neglecting my blog for a while but with good reason, as i have actually been stitching and here is the final result
and here it is framed - it's for one of the doctors at my work who got married recenlty, she was supposed to be getting married in the Cayman Islands but a bit of a hurricane put that idea out and she ended up getting married in Mexico - thought i would do this for her though as she is really sweet and always get's us pressies at xmas...with my stitching time being a bit on the short side just now, i've just concentrated on this. I've a couple of updates on the others i'm working on - baby sampler for my pal (whose baby i have still not met, i must get up to Glasgow soon..) and christmas stocking for ds Joe which is so not going to be done for this christmas lol!
I can't believe september has been and gone, i definitely feel like i slept walked through that month - it's suddenly autumn and the leaves are falling - yesterday it was blowing a gale, chucking it down with rain and freezing cold and today lovely and sunny and blue skies, out picking out leaves for the kid's school projects - a lovely day has been had by all ( and now off to watch Strictly Come Dancing )
