Today was one of those days I look forward to and am always guaranteed a nice time. I spent it with my girlfriend. When we get together we talk about our kids and antiques. We chat like we see each other every day, although she lives an hour and a half a way.
Today we went to an antique store and a used store that has about everything collectible and antique in it.
I started off slow but by the time I was done, I had enough to redo my bathroom. She got some goodies also. She also brought me a surprise gift. It is the gold framed photo you will see below. It is just beautiful in my eyes.
I also purchased the baby doll that you will see. I am not sure of her age, but she is at least as old as I am. An electric candle, some berry vine, an old-fashioned candle that operates on battery and flickers when it is lit. My girlfriend also brought me a lady on a swing.
I also took a photo of me about 15 years ago. The photo above it is of my dad when he was about 18.
Elaine over at
has nominated me for the Wonderful Team Award. Thank-you so much Elaine.
Do you know my friend? Well, if you do not please take the time to look at her website. She makes lovely jewelry. Here is a little bit about her. Please stop in and say hello.
I live near Cambridge in England and only started blogging to support someone else. I love it, I don’t know why, perhaps I can share that with you when I work it out. Perhaps (more likely) you can tell me?
I live with my husband and three children. (One joined the family by stealth.) The girls are at University now, but you can tell they still live here by the amount of ‘stuff’ left lying around.
I work in a library, which I love and my hobby is making jewellery – maybe I’ll post pictures sometime – especially beaded necklaces and especially working with crystals. I love anything sparkly.
I’m not tidy or organised and my life is chaotic. Happy days.
I was given another award by Billie. The address is;
The award is the Sunshine Award.
Do you know Billie? Once again I urge you to check out her blog. She is humorous, smart and says it like it is.
Here is a little piece of what Billie says about herself.
Life with multiple sclerosis is quite often an uphill battle, but I do not let it bring me down. Eight years after my diagnosis and 3.5 years after retiring from work I have found a schedule, a system, a way of living that suits me well. Main symptoms are fairly the same from 2004/2005, so steep decline has not emerged. I refuse to write “not emerged yet,” because I have time, the pharmaceutical world and holistic therapies at my side. Adapting to severe fatigue still is somewhat of a war between my head and the rest of me but grace to a great bed, lots of free time and understanding friends and family, I can rest and relax as much as I need.
